Railroad Museum as Charity (Amazon Smile)
Posted by CMStPnP on Wednesday, June 16, 2021 11:47 AM

Just want to throw the pitch out there again that you can designate your favorite railway museum as a benefiting charity.   Each time you purchase from Amazon a small portion of the amount will go to that charity.    Details are on AmazonSmile and you have to use the AmazonSmile interface to get your purchases counted.   For example this last quarter, Illinois Railway Museum earned approx $400.00 in donations from various Amazon Smile users.    I know we can get more to participate in this and boost that amount higher so spread the word among folks you know use Amazon.    I am also sure more companies do charity donations beyond Amazon as well.

Have been doing that for the Reading Company Technical and Historical Society for a few years.
