A fundraising message from Simon Chandler
Hi to all our members, friends and supporters.
I have just set up an account for the Society of Our Lady of Lourdes with smile.amazon.co.uk. Amazon smile is the charitable side of Amazon. Everything on smile is exactly the same as the main amazon website. You log into smile with your normal amazon login details.
When you first visit smile.amazon.co.uk you will be prompted to select your charity, you only have to do this once. Then just shop as normal.
Or you can use this link https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/1086419-0 This should take you straight to our landing page.
Amazon smile will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price(excluding VAT and shipping fees) of eligible amazon smile purchases to the charity selected by the customer.
Not everything is an eligible purchase. It will tell you next to the product description if your item is eligible.
Our Amazon donations are paid electronically every quarter.
I would be extremely grateful if everybody could have a go at this as Christmas is coming and this is FREE MONEY from Amazon and nothing in the shopping process changes for you or me, we just need to use: smile.amazon.co.uk and select our charity.

Society Life Friend, Wigberto de Souza, has sent us the following requests from Pope Francis:
Weep not for what you have lost, fight for what you have.
Weep not for what is dead, fight for what was born in you.
Weep not for the one who abandoned you, fight for who is with you.
Weep not for those who hate you, fight for those who want you.
Weep not for your past, fight for your present struggle.
Weep not for your suffering, fight for your happiness.
With things that are happening to us,
we begin to learn that nothing is impossible to solve,
just move forward.
THE HOLY FATHER MAKES A REQUEST FOR PRAYERS THAT GOD PROTECTS HIM AND GIVES HIM FORCES TO MEET THIS DIFFICULT TASK . . . . SO BE IT! SO BE IT, LORD JESUS!!!
