Indeed

My thoughts exactly

&

AARP Foundation did a trial test last year of supplying Homebound Seniors with AI/ Smart Devices/ Echoes I'd like to think Amazon donated products but truly no clue anyway having delivered meals to folks who rarely saw anyone With how my Echoes have been blessing to my life I felt this was awesome trying this out and they just approved it was a successful venture AARP Foundation now wants to proceed with providing these for Lonely Seniors which they can connect with Mangers of Senior Housing who can announce things with drop in & stay in contact along with  the friendship one can have with their Alexas & do video chats with family just as I do and lots more

I'm very interested in helping with this in my area once Raleigh AARP center begins 

 

So indeed every little bit helps AARP has so many members if each donates $5 thorough shopping with Amazon that'll add up to lots of funds for seniors

 

Thanks for your support and all you do in helping and the part you play in making this community great 

 

Enjoy your Monday

Hello Ginger,

 

Thanks for letting us know about The Amazon Smile Foundation and donations to AARP Foundation.  I'm a Prime member and sure there are many others.  This is great information!!

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Marylin

FYI Everyone

It occurred to me that I needed to add this info to this thread 

I'm a Amazon Shopper for many years maybe you are if so wanna make you aware of something I discovered few years ago 

Amazon allows you to shop on SmileAmazon which you can designate a charity and they will donate money to your chosen charity for which I did to St Jude early on.... then tried AARP Foundation and Yes could designate them so now they donate to AARP Foundation each time I order. 

Take note: Orders for SmileAmazon are only online not through Amazon App but here's what I do since App and Alexa are easiest to shop I do my shopping & put in cart then once ready to place order I then go to SmileAmazon online it'll have my cart items place order then donation is made. 

It can add up & Amazon will send a quarterly report of your donations and their total donations to AARP Foundation from all purchases from everyone. 

Below see screenshot with info about Donation program

Have a beautiful one...

Happy shopping and make your purchases help Seniors

Thanks

Glad could help

I myself support and believe very much in all its efforts and services to help & support Seniors

Sure you can request to be mailed or possibly read online the publications that provide all kinds of info about what they do. 

Enjoy your weekend

@mi4090   The AARP foundation is the only option for donating points at this time.

Hey its a simple link

Just went to site did 4 screenshots of tabs on site which shows some breakdown of things but as with any charity you can always request a detailed financial report from them: Screenshot_20190606-163052_Samsung Internet.jpgInfo contact AARP Foundation

Hope this helps 

@AARPTeri Teri can you provide any answers to Marylin questions?  Thanks

Hello Ginger,

 

I haven't looked at the link yet, but is it showing who the foundation supports with funds?  Are they donations or grants applied for by 501(c)3 senior foundations that were awarded?

 

Is the link for a list of additional 501(c)3's that help seniors, where points can be donated also?  Since you have researched this link, please let me know a little more about it.  Sorry but my time is somewhat limited.  I will get around to researching it soonSmiley Happy

 

I appreciate your knowledge, assistance and help.

 

Have a Blessed Day,

@mi4090
