Through a special arrangement with Amazon.com, the parish can earn 4% commission on all your sales made at Amazon.com. That’s right 4%. The process is simple:
go to either http://sawatn.org or http://spwatn.org
On the page you will see the Amazon logo. Just click on it. Your familiar Amazon website will appear. Shop as much as you want. Because you have entered through our website, 4% of your purchase price will be deposited with the parish. You do not have to do anything for this to happen. All promotions, coupons, gift cards, and/or Prime are still in effect just as if you had entered Amazon without going through the parish website.
So, shop for yourself, shop for your friends and family, and, at the same time, give to the parish.
