Attention Amazon Users
Did you know that you can easily, and at no cost to you, donate .5% of your Amazon purchases to Westwood Baptist Church or any charity you choose? All that is needed is to log on to Smile.Amazon.com rather than Amazon.com. You can log on with your same username and password and near the top you will see an option to select a charity. Simply use Smile.Amazon for your purchases and .5% will automatically be designated to that charity every quarter and you can track that as well. Please consider doing so and selecting Westwood. We always have many wonderful opportunities to put such funds to good use.
