Remember to Smile!
By Jan Fiore
As the holidays arrive, life can get very busy, and multitasking can get out of control, which can take the fun out of the season. However, there is one kind of multitasking that is easy and supports the PTDT at the same time!
If you buy things on Amazon, you can easily set up your account to name PTDT as the recipient of the donation through their AmazonSmile program. The donation comes from Amazon.com, with no additional money out of your pocket, which is great!
Setting this up is easy. On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you need to select a nonprofit organization (in this case, Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre). Amazon remembers your selection and then every eligible purchase you make through smile.amazon.com will result in a donation. The only thing you need to remember is to put smile.amazon.com in your browser in order for Amazon to acknowledge it and to qualify PTDT for the donation. Occasionally Amazon will remind you with a little popup tip. Purchasing through the regular Amazon.com website won’t result in a donation.
If you already shop on Amazon, you might as well do some good at the same time!
Another fun way to support the PTDT is to attend the December 5th Fundraiser and see PTDT’s “The Nutcracker: A Contemporary Coming of Age.” The event includes a silent auction and two performances! Doors open at 2:00 p.m. and goes until 5:00 p.m., with the Nutcracker performance starting at 2:30. A great way to support PTDT and get in the holiday spirit as well!
