In addition, another great way to financially support OCLB-ASA is by designating the Chapter as the charity of choice at Smile.Amazon.com. With each of your eligible purchases (almost all purchases are eligible) at this site, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the Chapter, at no additional cost to you. To designate OCLB-ASA as the charity of choice, follow the easy instructions below:
-Go to smile.amazon.com
and search for "American Statistical Association".
-The search results will include various ASA chapters with five located in CA - Carlsbad, Dan Point, LA, Fremont, and Sacramento.
-Make sure you pick the Irvine, CA
-After signing up, shop at smile.amazon.com
, not the regular amazon, as otherwise, the chapter won't benefit from your purchases.
Note that the regular Amazon.com site does not have this feature. To make an effective donation, after you designate OCLB-ASA as charity of choice, remember to visit smile.amazon.com to make your purchases, not amazon.com.
