The Christening of the Buen Jesús y Nuestra Señora del Rosario
Beth & Bill Fisher Rosario Challenge
“In an effort to contribute in a meaningful way towards the cause, Beth and I would like to donate $5,000 towards materials to be used to construct the Krewe’s new float, the Rosario. In addition, to motivate the giving of others, we will match dollar for dollar the donations of others towards the float, up to an additional $5,000.
The availability of our additional matching donation will be based on donations by others made after this date. The intent of the matching donation is to motivate the additional giving of others, not to simply offset previous expenditures or donations. My suggestion would be that Beth and I match five $1,000 donations. The initial $5,000 donation is available now, and the additional matching contribution can be available in minimum increments of $1,000 or more. By this, I mean the smallest matching check we will issue is $1,000; the donations matched can be made up of the accumulation of smaller amounts.
Traditionally Beth and I find ourselves attending four or five parades a year; however, I cannot adequately express the joy that we receive in the Fellowship with our fellow Krewe Members, and the Pride that we have in our glorious floats as they roll down the parade route. Our hope is that this gesture serves as a catalyst towards the completion of our new flagship, which will service us proudly for years to come.”
Long live the Krewe of the Santa Margarita!
Bill and Beth Fisher

and Amazon will make a donation
to the YMKSM Foundation
Amazon has introduced a program called AmazonSmile, which will automatically donate 0.5% of your purchases to the charity you select. We hope you choose Ye Mystic Krewe of Santa Margarita Foundation, Inc. It costs you (and the charitable organizations) nothing, and it's just like shopping on Amazon normally, but you get to do a world of good for the Krewe of Santa Margarita.
Items that are eligible for the donations will be marked as such on their product pages. Unfortunately, Subscribe-and-Save purchases and renewals don't count.
The only real catch is you have to start your shopping at smile.amazon.com (which means you have to update your bookmark if you want to do this), and shopping from the Amazon apps, Kindle, or through affiliate links won't count.
AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service.
