From our President, Julie:
Shop Amazon, Support ACB
Are you starting to make your shopping list for the upcoming holidays? I
have already begun making my wish list and shopping.
One of my favorite online shopping web sites is www.amazon.com. I no longer
have to shop until I drop; I can relax in my favorite chair and browse to my
I recently learned that I can support the American Council of the Blind
while shopping. That's right! You can shop Amazon and a portion of your
hard-earned money can go to assist ACB. It is really easy. Here's how.
From your favorite Internet browser, simply go to www.acb.org/adp. There,
you will find information on ACB's Audio Description Project. There is a
link called "The ADI Amazon.com Associate Link." This will take you to
Amazon, where you can shop as usual. ACB receives a commission on everything
you purchase from Amazon through this link - described DVDs, games,
household products, books, music, and even food. And it doesn't cost you one
penny more to help ACB!
I have an account at Amazon, and they recognize me when I enter using the
ACB links. For the most part, I shop the Amazon main site; however, there is
a link to an accessible site, and I do use it on occasion.
By the way, spend some time on the ADP page; there is a bundle of very
valuable information there for your perusal. You'll find information about
audio-described TV shows, movies, DVDs, and much more.
Happy shopping, and enjoy supporting ACB this holiday season.
