    Amazon.com now donates a percentage of each purchase to a charity of your choice. It's free, you just have to have an Amazon account and make sure you select a charity. I saw this and thought it was pretty cool. I chose Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS). There are a ton of LE related charities out there.

    Yep. They've been doing that for awhile. You need to log in at https://smile.amazon.com/ and then designate your charity. I give to the Fisher House. Great charity.

          I highly recommend that you look into Fisher House instead. WWP has been a pretty crappy "charity" to date. A huge chunk of the money donated has gone to pay exorbitant salaries, executive retreats, and other spending to raise the quality of life of their top executives, not veterans. Admittedly, WW has fired nearly half of their executives and ordered funds be redirected back to wounded vets, but that order just came down a month ago.

          Fisher House really helps veterans and their families. It's consistently one of the highest rated veteran charites. 92% of all money raised goes back to veteran programs. WWP, by contrast, only 54% is used to fund programs. Only the Semper Fi fund is higher that Fisher House (at 93%).

                As a retired Soldier, combat vet in two wars and a cop I won't touch WWP with a ten foot pole.

                  Heck, I even stopped buying products that had the "we donate to WWP" logo on in. Boy do I miss those inexpensive "Red Barron" frozen pizzas from the commissary. :-(
                  Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

                    Thank you. I never knew about this. I'm now donating to the ASPCA.

                      Just remember you have to buy from the "smile" URL or the donation doesn't go thru.

                          Although this place is not a law enforcement related entity, Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago is a very worthy charity.
