If you’re anything like us, you’re looking forward to the holidays, but also feeling slightly panicked at everything that’s on your to-do list. And if shopping is one of those items, you should know that any time you click on an Amazon ad on the Stuy PA website and purchase something at Amazon, a percentage of your sale goes directly to the Stuy PA at no extra cost to you and with no change to your existing membership services (such as Prime).
This is such an easy way to make a difference—and, BONUS! you’ll kill two birds with one stone—not only will you cross some items off your list, you’ll be contributing money to Stuy that gets used for great programs that directly benefit your kids. Sports, academics, clubs, teachers, the library, and even the principal all receive money from the PA.
You may see a pop-up when you get to Amazon that asks you if you want to shop “Amazon Smile” to benefit Stuyvesant. This program pays out at a much lower rate, so please do not use this option. Instead, bookmark this link (or click on any Amazon ad on this website) before shopping at Amazon.
