A new fundraiser that some people may not know about can make a real difference to the DYFL. Amazon supports 501C3 organizations like us. BUT..... to have Amazon apply a donation based on your Amazon purchases you MUST use the Smile.Amazon.Com (do not use www) website instead of the standard amazon.com. One at Smile.Amazon.Com log in and search & select DeKalb Youth Football League as your charity and shop normally! Prime rates apply and all their normal deals are in tact. The only difference is that Amazon will make a donation on select items to the DYFL in the amount of .5% of your purchase.... Yes I said only 1/2 percent. it may not seem like much but collectively that can add up to several hundreds of dollars throughout the year that comes straight to the DYFL. Make the switch and start using Smile.Amazon.Com, search & select DeKalb Youth Football League as your charity and that it is. Once again please keep in mind that the donations do not apply unless they specifically come through Smile.Amazon.Com. (Using the app does not count either) Amazon applies the donations quarterly to the DYFL account. Send this link to family and friends so they can do the same. DYFL Smile.Amazon Link
