Dear APALA members:

On behalf of the Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA), an ethnic association affiliated with the American Library Association (ALA), we would like you to invite you to consider donating to our great organization this holiday season via two opportunities:

Purchasing a gift or two or ten via amazon.com?  This holiday season help fundraise for APALA while you shop on AmazonSmile!  If you are not familiar with AmazonSmile, it is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.

To access APALA’s Amazon Smile webpage click on the banner ad on http://www.apalaweb.org/  or go directly to https://smile.amazon.com/ch/54-1571421  

Done with your holiday shopping?  We don’t want you to feel left out — in the spirit of the holidays, your generous cash donation will support our ongoing awards and scholarships which are awarded annually:

  • Emerging Leader
  • Travel Grant
  • APALA Scholarship

Most importantly, your contribution will be a perfect gift for you – an “end-of-the-season” tax write off.  Consider donating to APALA today!

Sincerely,

APALA Finance/Fundraising Committee:

Lessa Pelayo-Lozada (co-chair)
Sandy Wee (co-chair)
Peter Spyers-Duran
