Amazon Smile step-by-step
Open up Safari and load https://smile.amazon.com/
At the bottom of the screen you’ll see an icon depicting an arrow that looks like it’s trying to get away from a square. Tap this button — It is the “Share” icon.
You’ll now have a few options. The one you want to tap is “Add to Home Screen”.
You’ll be asked to choose a name for the homescreen icon. Pick something you’ll remember and save it. When you’re done it’ll show up on your homescreen and you’ll be able to move it around and put it wherever in your list of apps you’d like
For Android devices:
Go to www.smile.amazon.com in your phone's browser and log into your account.
In the phone's menu bar at the top right, select "Add to home screen."
A kind of "app" for Amazon Smile will appear on your home screen.
Hold a Facebook fundraiser in honor of your birthday or other milestone: Facebook fundraisers are an increasingly popular way for people to raise money for their favorite nonprofits. If you are hosting a fundraiser on Facebook, we’d love to know about it so we can thank you!
It is quick and easy to set-up a Facebook fundraiser:
1) Go to your Facebook account
2) Go to your “home” page and look on the left side column. You should see the “fundraiser” option under "Create" at the bottom. Click on "fundraiser" and Facebook will walk you through the options.
3) Select The Jillian Fund (Montvale, NJ) as the charity.
4) Set your fundraising goal and time-frame. Set something that you feel good about and see where it goes! You can always raise the amount if your friends are connecting to the cause and feel generous. Add something personal about why you have selected The Jillian Fund as your charity. Perhaps you have a friend or relative with a child who experienced a serious illness. Maybe you were a beneficiary of the Fund or know someone who was. Please remember that The Jillian Fund’s goal is to unite families and their children facing life-threatening illnesses and who are receiving treatment at the Hackensack Meridian Health Network’s Joseph M. Sanzari’s Children’s Hospital.
5) Invite your friends to support your fundraiser and engage with them! This is key. Share often on your timeline; not everyone will see something the first time you post. Don’t be hesitant to invite people to support The Jillian Fund; remember that your Facebook fundraiser supports families who are facing impossible situations, parents who want to be by their child’s side when they are facing a life-threatening illness but still have to pay the rent, utilities and car payments along with other day-to-day expenses.
6) Thank people as they donate and watch the donations increase!
