How you can support The Lion of Judah Academy while doing your shopping!
We’d like to remind you about ways you can support the students and ministry of The Lion of Judah Academy while you are shopping from your computer or mobile device.
Here are the top three: #1 — Etsy sites which support The Lion of Judah Academy. #2 – AmazonSmile. #3 – Facebook Fundraisers.
Here’s more about each.
#1 – Etsy sites which support The Lion of Judah Academy.
https://www.etsy.com/shop/LionsLair — All profits from LionsLair Etsy Shop will be donated to The Lion of Judah Ministries. You will be helping a needy child get an education. This shop is owned and operated by Lynn Inlow, one of the founders of The Lion of Judah Academy. Profits from all purchases, made any time during the year, go to the school
Find something you like at: //https://www.etsy.com/shop/LynnInlow — This is Lynn’s retail shop. During check out, just make a note that you would like the profits to go to The Lion of Judah Academy and she will make sure those donations go to scholarships for students.
#2 – AmazonSmile
Several times a year we receive checks from AmazonSmile. So far in 2019 they have added up to a couple of student sponsorships! And they haven’t cost anyone – other than Amazon – a penny!
Where do the contributions come from? Shoppers like you decide to designate Lion of Judah Ministries as the charity they want to support when they shop at Amazon. Then Amazon Smile donates .5% of every purchase they make on Amazon to The Lion of Judah…at no extra cost to the shopper. One-half of one percent may not sound like much…but it really does add up. And students at LOJA are blessed as a result!
It is easy to sign up. Here’s a link explaining how to do it: Sign up for AmazonSmile
— You’ll need an Amazon account, and you may need your log on credentials
— on steps 3 and 4, you’ll need to search for “Lion of Judah Ministries”; we’re not one of the ‘big guys’ who come up automatically! When The Lion of Judah Ministries charities come up you may be surprised to see how many there are with similar names! But we’re easy to spot…look for “Hobe Sound, FL Incorporated 2003” — that’s us and we should be near the top of the list
Once you’ve signed up, a small portion of each purchase you make will be contributed to LOJA. And it’s going to add up!
One Important note: It’s easy to get “AmazonSmile” and regular “Amazon” mixed up because the shopping experience is identical. For instance, whatever items are in your shopping cart on one will also be in your shopping cart on the other! They are almost exactly the same. So it’s very easy to assume you are on AmazonSmile, and the percent of your purchase will go to the school, but in reality you may be on regular Amazon, and it won’t go to the school. I’ve done it several times! How can you know? It’s pretty simple to see once you know where to look! In the upper left corner is either the “AmazonSmile” or the “Amazon” logo. Or, in the website address bar, does it start with, “smile.amazon…” or just “amazon”?
On the “how to sign up” link above, they suggest bookmarking “AmazonSmile” — that’s really the easiest and most sure way.
#3 – Facebook Fundraisers
If you use Facebook you’ve probably seen – and perhaps participated in — Facebook Fund-Raisers. We are registered with Facebook as a not-for-profit and we have often received help from those fundraisers, as well as other Facebook causes. Friends of the school create Facebook Fundraisers for their birthday, anniversary, and other special events…or just to help the school
If you’re interested in hosting a Facebook fund-raiser for the school contact us and we’ll try to help you out.
