At the end of June Amazon will change their service collecting donations for charitable groups, including the monthly donations that many families make to support our great school LACES.

We have changed over to PayPal to collect all annual giving donations. You do NOT have to have a PayPal account, you can donate through PayPal via credit card.

We wanted to let those of you who donate monthly know that Amazon will not accept your donation starting in July, and to ask you to be ready to go to the FOL fundraising page to switch your support to PayPal.

And for those of you not yet on the bandwagon, monthly recurring donations are an easy way to increase your support for the amazing education our children are getting at LACES, the #14 school in California and #84 in the nation, according to US News & World Report.

Please note, this doesn’t affect the money we earn when you make purchases on Amazon by clicking on the various Amazon banners on the web site. Please do continue to click on these banners whenever you want to make a purchase on Amazon. This is essentially free money for Friends of LACES.

by Paul Smith on February 23, 2014

A big THANK YOU to all our friends who remembered to first visit the LACES web site and click on an Amazon banner before placing their orders with Amazon.

Thanks to you, Friends of LACES earned over $2,000 last year – with almost $500 of that earned in December alone!

We know we can do even better! Throughout the year, whenever you’re about to shop online with Amazon, just remember to first visit the Friends of Laces web site or the school website and click on one of the Amazon banners. We earn commission on a sliding scale – the more items ordered each month, the higher our percentage.

And don’t forget to tell your friends and family too!
