As a non-profit that doesn’t utilize volunteers in the classroom, we know many of our supporters are curious of other ways to support SparkShop’s mission to mobilize and inspire the next generation of engineers, innovators, entrepreneurs & manufacturing geniuses. Today we’re highlighting two ways you can support us via Amazon.
Select SparkShop as your AmazonSmile beneficiary - AmazonSmile is a website run by Amazon that maintains the same online shopping experience (with the same products and prices). When you make a purchase through AmazonSmile, 0.5% of your purchase is donated to a non-profit of your choosing! We get a quarterly check for anywhere from $5-$30 dollars, so this truly does make a difference for us! (You’ll see our name as Science & Entrepreneurship Exchange. Don’t worry, that’s our old name but the check comes to SparkShop!)
Buy something from our Amazon Charity List - This is replacing our earlier Amazon Wish List. We have picked out the exact prototyping materials, tools, and school supplies that we need to keep SparkShop running! You select the items to sponsor and Amazon sends them directly to our office!
Pro Tip: Enable the Google Chrome Extension “Smile Always" to make sure you never forget to make your purchase through AmazonSmile. This extension redirects any Amazon.com page to Smile.Amazon.com!
We’re eternally grateful for every person who has joined us on our mission to show Chicago’s children how fun engineering really is!
