Use AmazonSmile To Benefit NRA International Rifle Teams

Recently, the High Power Rifle community set up a 501(c)(3) charity to receive donations via the AmazonSmile Foundation. The goal is to raise money for the NRA International Rifle teams that are traveling overseas to shoot over the next few years, and beyond.

The U.S. Palma Rifle Team Foundation supports Palma Rifle team competition at the international level. A vast sum—approximately $250,000—is required every four-year cycle to properly select, train and transport the 26-member team to the site of the host country for the World Long-Range Individual and Team Championships. This competition has been previously held at locations including Camp Perry, OH, in August 2015; and Wellington, New Zealand, in January 2019 (the U.S. team won a bronze medal in New Zealand). The next World Championship will be conducted in South Africa in 2023. As you can see, securing funds to support U.S. teams is critical with all of the international travel involved.

“The AmazonSmile charity contribution program is important to us,” said Walt Walter, a member of the NRA Board of Directors and longtime High Power Rifle committee chairman. “This is a method we are using to raise money for our International Rifle teams.”

Here is how you can donate. Visit AmazonSmile and select Palma Promotions, Inc. as your charity. After you do this, every purchase you make on Amazon will result in the company donating 0.5 percent of your purchase price to Palma Promotions. Best of all, this will cost you absolutely nothing and the International teams will benefit greatly from the donations. The more people who sign up, the more the International Rifle teams stand to gain from Amazon’s charitable donations.

While shopping via smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the same convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, including the usual low prices and wide selection—plus the aforementioned added bonus that will help support the Palma Promotions charity.

You can sign up at this link. Please share this news with your friends and club members.

Special thanks to Walt Walter for his help reporting this story.
