Use Amazon.com? You Can Easily Raise Money for Brookdale

So if you’re here you know that the HSA Web site has been transitioned to a new home here at BrookdaleHSA.com. The simple explanation why this happened is best relayed by a picture:

Amazon Banner

That’s a banner that links to Amazon.com. If you haven’t noticed, there’s one just like (or similar to) it on the right side of this page. We did this so that Brookdale School can benefit from the shopping you do at Amazon.com. Here’s how it works:

  1. Click on the banner before you go to Amazon to make a purchase.
  2. The banner will put you on Amazon’s site. Shop away as you see fit.
  3. If you order an item, Brookdale will get a credit worth 4% (maybe 6% later on) of the purchase price once that items ships. (That’s the awesome part.)

This is another of the simple, passive ways for us to benefit from the things Brookdale families already do (in this case, buy things online at Amazon). We’ve done a trial run and are happy to report that the first couple of dollars have been credited to the Brookdale account. So, if you’ve got some last-minute holiday shopping to do, we hope you consider this a great way to get that done.

There are more details to be shared here – for example, there are some items that are excluded from this arrangement – but for now we wanted to start getting the word out. We’ll fill in more as we go, and please let us know if you have any questions in advance.

We will also shortly get to the THANK YOU part of this. For now, we thank Rafael for suggestion the idea, Dani for getting us registered and pushing us toward the finish line, and Peter for connecting all the dots and making this a reality.

More to come…
