"Giving is the highest expression of potency. In the very act of giving, I experience my strength, my wealth, my power. This experience of heightened vitality and potency fills me with joy. I experience myself as overflowing, spending, alive, hence as joyous. Giving is more joyous than receiving, not because it is a deprivation, but because in the act of giving lies the expression of my aliveness." ~ Erich Fromm
Amazon Smiles Donations
For the many of us who shop at the popular on-line retailer Amazon, there is a free, no-cost fund-raising program for non-profit organizations called "Amazon Smile." If you enroll in this program, Amazon will send one-half of one percent (0.5 %) of every dollar you spend directly to the Maj. Gen. Irene Trowell-Harris Chapter. It's free, painless and doesn't affect your purchases in any way.
Here's how to enroll. Go to https://smile.amazon.com/ch/14-1803183 the next time you make an Amazon purchase. You'll see a drop-down window that says, "Thank you! Now when you shop at smile.amazon.com, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase price to Tuskegee Airmen Inc." (Tuskegee Airmen Inc. denotes the Trowell-Harris Chapter, not TAI.)
IMPORTANT! Bookmark that link and use it every time you shop at Amazon. If you simply go to amazon.com the next time you shop, you will not be registered as a Trowell-Harris Chapter donor unless you again type in the full smile.amazon.com URL.
Join us in making use of this wonderful charity, and help us to sign up not only you but your relatives, friends, neighbors, even your employer and local businesses. For the Trowell-Harris Chapter, it's money simply waiting to be collected to support our tuition-award program, our Lt. Lee A. Archer Jr. Red Tail Youth Flying Program, our endowment fund, and our other outreach efforts to preserve the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen.
