You can support Covenant B.C. when you shop at Amazon. It's simple to do, doesn't cost you a thing (except the price of what you would purchase anyway), and the checkout process is no different than the way you currently shop there (if you shop at Amazon). This program is called AmazonSmile.
AmazonSmile is operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, shopping, and shipping features as Amazon.com. It works with Amazon Prime shipping as well. The difference is that when you shop at AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) or enable it on the mobile app, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.
