you can support Crispus Attucks Park by shopping online with Amazon Smile ~

Subject: Support Crispus Attucks Park for *FREE* just by shopping online!

Ho ho ho to all of you lazy, yet well-intentioned shopaholics, who love both (1) inputting your credit card on the web, and (2) enjoying the wonders of the hidden community Park at Crispus Attucks in Bloomingdale.

Let me ask you: Do you love the convenience of shopping online?  The seemingly infinite selection and low prices that Amazon offers you?  The thrill of awaiting whether the U(S)PS person accidentally delivered your Amazon package to a different address (>25% likely), and then scouring the neighborhood for your missing delivery with a flashlight?  Or do you simply cherish the anguish of your Metro ride home from work, while knowing full-well (maybe from your MPD-sponsored Nest camera whose wifi connection, for once!, happened to work this afternoon) that your package was actually delivered to your front stoop this time around -- but worrying to death that a Christmas porch pirate might get to it before you get off this overcrowded red line train and race home?!

Then I have a great proposal for you this season (and for all of 2020 and beyond): Shop on and select Crispus Attucks Development Corporation as your favorite charity.

If you are unfamiliar with AmazonSmile (I was, too, until this year), it’s simple: Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchases to the charity of your choice, paid out of ITS OWN POCKET.

At no cost to you.  No skin off your back.  Simple.  Free.  For a good cause.  Jeff Bezos money, going straight to the lovely Crispus Attucks Park (whose upkeep is reliant on donations)...

So, head on over to, choose Crispus Attucks Development Corp. as the recipient 501(c)(3) charity, and... shop away, dear digital Consumer!

PS: If you're on a mobile device, this will not work on the Amazon app.  You must use a web browser and replace the "WWW." with "Smile."  Unfortunately, Amazon hasn't incorporated that option into its app yet, which remains commercial-only, with all of your money going straight to Jeffy B...
