Shop Amazon. Support LifeSiteNews
Trying to raise just the bare minimum funds to keep this TRUTH service running is always a challenge. We are therefore excited to announce our Amazon Associates portal for our U.S. and International readers (Amazon.com) and our Canadian readers (Amazon.ca).
This provides you with an effortless way to support our mission while also buying zillions of products usually at much lower prices than you would pay elsewhere. The prices you pay are exactly the same whether you buy Amazon products through LifeSiteNews or go direct to Amazon.
That is, the financial support for LSN costs you nothing.
What is an Amazon Associate?
An Amazon Associate is basically an advertiser. However, rather than being paid by click-rate on our link to Amazon, we receive a referal fee based upon the purchases made through this link. LifeSiteNews earns up to 8.5% of every purchase made by our readers.
How it works
The percentage rate that we receive increases as more of our supporters use the Amazon link to purchase items. See the chart below:
For example, it would only take 100 people purchasing 3-4 items for LifeSiteNews to receive an 8.50% return in referal fees. Say those 100 people spent an average of $35 on their orders, that would be nearly $300! This can really add up day after day.
Over a million visitors come to our website each month. If only a fraction of 1% of them shopped through LSN’s Amazon link, our life-saving work could receive thousands of dollars in critically needed support! And then if you urged friends and family members to do the same, well, it could really ease our ever present financial burdens.
With Christmas approaching, you have this unique, simple opportunity to support our pro-life and pro-family work through what many of you are already doing anyway: shopping online.
The best way to ensure that every purchase you make on Amazon supports our mission is to create a bookmark on your web browser. Then it’s only one click to shopping for life and family!
“I wish I could give more”
Supporters often tell us they wish they could give more. We regrettably still don’t have any major donors or foundations committed to providing regular, substantial financial backing for our operation. We have only you – Thank God! We are constantly overwhelmed by your generosity.
Now, giving more won’t take any extra sacrifice on your part. Buy the things you need and want online as you normally would and support our work at the same time without spending an extra dime.
For Life and Family,
