Amazon has a feature called AmazonSmile you can support BiblicalTraining every time you shop with Amazon, and at no additional cost to you. Amazon will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases which will allow us to use the funds to produce more quality classes that help make an impact around this world for Jesus Christ!
All you need to do is to register BiblicalTraining as your chosen charity with this link: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/91-2091751
You can shop using this same link, or through http://smile.amazon.com. (Your usual www.amazon.com URL will not automatically link your purchases to the Amazonsmile program.)
It is easy to have your Amazon purchases support BiblicalTraining. During this giving season – let Amazon make donations to BiblicalTraining.

QUESTIONS ABOUT AMAZONSMILE
Will there be any changes in the prices or availability of products when I use AmazonSmile instead of Amazon?
No. Amazonsmile is a charitable organization, funded by Amazon. Amazon donates the money. There is no charge to you as a customer.
If the donation isn’t charged to me, then where does the donation come from?
Amazonsmile is a charitable organization, funded by Amazon. Amazon donates the money. There is no charge to you as a customer.
Will I still have access to all my same Amazon features if I use Amazonsmile?
Yes, your history, your digital content, your account information, any saved address or payment information, and if applicable, Amazon Prime is ALL still available when you shop with Amazonsmile. The site will look the SAME as always, the only difference is that you will see “Amazonsmile” at the top left, and when using the full site you will also see near the top of the page that you are supporting “BiblicalTraining”.
Is it worth it? .5% of my purchases is so little: will it add up too much for the BiblicalTraining?
YES, it could! If all the people who receive our emails register the BiblicalTraining as their Amazonsmile charity and then make only $100 in purchases through Amazonsmile, BiblicalTraining will be able to fund several new classes this year. That is if folks only spend $100 through Amazonsmile. This program lasts all year long – just think about how much this could add up to!
I registered another organization as my Amazonsmile charity. How do I change my charity?
Simply use the link https://smile.amazon.com/ch/91-2091751. If you have previously registered a different charity, Amazonsmile will let you know and will ask if you would like to change your charity to BiblicalTraining. We certainly hope you will choose our BiblicalTraining, but also understand if you would prefer your Amazonsmile dollars to go to another organization. Note that you can always change your charity.
Now that I have registered the BiblicalTraining as my chosen AmazonSmile charity, can I just shop at Amazon as usual?
Pretty much, however, in order for your purchases to lead to AmazonSmile donations, you must use the URL: http://smile.amazon.com OR https://smile.amazon.com/ch/91-2091751 every time you make a purchase at Amazon. To make it easier to use the Amazonsmile program, you may want to “bookmark” http://smile.amazon.com or https://smile.amazon.com/ch/91-2091751.
I often shop through the Amazon app on my phone or device. Will those purchases automatically lead to AmazonSmile donations?
Unfortunately, no. If you prefer to shop or browse using Amazon’s app, go ahead and add items to your shopping cart using the app, but then use your browser to open www.smile.amazon.com to complete your purchase. Everything that you left in your shopping cart will still be waiting for you. You may want to create a link on your phone/device to www.smile.amazon.com.
How can I help spread the word?
Thanks for asking! There are several options.
One option could be to add a comment like this to your email signature or your website.
“If you shop at Amazon, please choose the BiblicalTraining as your Amazonsmile charity. Amazon will donate .5% of your eligible purchases to fund BiblicalTraining video productions. Use this link EVERY time you shop: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/91-2091751"
Or you can use the following HTML code on your website to embed our BiblicalTraining image/button – making it a clickable link:
<div align="center"><a href="http://smile.amazon.com/ch/91-2091751"><img src='https://d1ev1rt26nhnwq.cloudfront.net/ccmtblv2.png' id="banner" width="200" style="border-style: none;" /></a> <table style="position: relative; text-align: center; width: 200px; top: -110px; height: 30px; vertical-align: middle; left: 0px;"> <tr><td style="vertical-align: middle"><div style="max-height: 54px; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;"> <span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; line-height: 16px;" class="charityNameSpan"><br><b>BiblicalTraining.org</b></span></div></td></tr></table></div></div>
(We are told by tech-savvy folks that this same code will work with email, Facebook and any other places where HTML code is used.)
Or put the image anywhere!
