Do you use Amazon Smile to donate to USU?

Of course!

How do you change your Amazon smile?

I'd much rather support usu than the leeches I currently have it set to.

smile.amazon.com then on the bar across the top you click amazonsmile. It will allow you to search for whatever you want. My wife says I can't change ours from the kids elementary school PTA:(


This post is likely straight up poor sarcasm and cannot be taken seriously.

Should I select USU or USU Foundation? Not sure the difference.

I do now! I didn't know that was an option. I had it set to a big national charity who probably gets a ton of people's donations.

Are PTAs like HOAs for public schools - or are they more like the woman version of "wearing your varsity letter jacket as an adult to relive your jock/mean girls days"?

(Good on you and your fam for helping the schools!)

I've donated over $140 this year. I suppose if enough of us do this, it adds up!

I don't think that is correct. What that means is that Amazon donated $140 to USU this year for everyone in their USU Smiles program. Basically, it is a lame donation apparatus.

Money came from me to Amazon, so I take credit for it. :)
