There are two easy ways to help Belinder Elementary raise money. Through Hangers and Amazon Smile, you can do your regular shopping and dry cleaning, and a portion of your purchases will be directed to our school! It’s so easy!
Shop Amazon Smile for Belinder!
Earn money for Belinder students every time you shop at Amazon. Simply do your shopping through Amazon Smile and 0.5% of your purchase will be donated to Belinder. It’s easy!
Follow the steps below:
Step 1: Visit smile.amazon.com
Step 2: Sign in and Choose Your Charity
In the “Pick your own charitable organization” box, type Belinder. Hit the search button and choose PTA Kansas Congress of Parents and Teahcers (yes, with the typo) from the list. Right now Amazon Smiles lists our organization as PTA Kansas Congress rather than Belinder because we are a subsidy under the larger Kansas PTA organization. If you click on the “about” button, it will describe the Belinder PTA organization.
Once you select PTA Kansas Congress of Parents and Teahcers, your Amazon Smile account is now linked to benefit Belinder PTA whenever you shop through the Amazon Smile website. After placing an order through Amazon Smile, a message appears on your order confirmation screen to show you that your order benefited the PTA Kansas Congress of Parents and Teahcers.
Step 3: Bookmark smile.amazon.com and use it to shop on Amazon.
*Note: So far, we have not seen a way to complete a purchase on Amazon Smile from the Amazon App (at least on iOS), but you can still shop on the Amazon App, and then complete your purchase via Safari or Google at smile.amazon.com. 🙂
Give back to Belinder Elementary School just by cleaning your clothes!
Hangers will contribute 10% of every dollar spent on services by Belinder Elementary supporters back to the school. For example, if Belinder has 500 supporters and each family spends an average of $500 a year at Hangers, it will result in a $25,000.00 contribution to Belinder – each year!

1. Click on the Hangers logo to the right (www.hangerskc.com) or call (816) 941-2262. Make sure to mention Belinder Elementary on the phone or type it in the comment box online.
