How to Help the Studio Where We Record (It's Free)
Thu., Dec. 13. 2018 12:16pm EST

One of the most significant events in the history of ApologetiX happened in 2012, when ApX drummer Jimmy "Vegas" Tanner and his wife, Eve, built their own recording studio, which they named Red Apple Audio Workshop.

We began recording our Hot Potato Soup CD there later that year, and all of our CDs and singles since then have come through Red Apple Audio Workshop — a total of 22 CDs and 116 singles — almost 250 songs!

Red Apple Audio Workshop is a non-profit organization, and Jimmy and Eve run it as a labor of love and a ministry, but there are expenses involved, such as recording equipment, computers, software, external hard drives, etc.

Now there's a way you can help Red Apple Audio Workshop when you make purchases through Amazon.com. It's called AmazonSmile, and it doesn't cost anything! You simply designate Red Apple Audio Workshop as your non-profit organization of choice, and Amazon does the rest. The whole process takes about five seconds.

If you're not familiar with AmazonSmile, here's how Amazon explains it:

What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you'll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization.

How do I shop at AmazonSmile?
To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile.

Can I use my existing Amazon.com account on AmazonSmile?
Yes, you use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.

How much of my purchase does Amazon donate?
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges.

Which products on AmazonSmile are eligible for charitable donations?
Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked "Eligible for AmazonSmile donation" on their product detail pages.

How do I select a charitable organization to support when shopping on AmazonSmile?
On your first visit to AmazonSmile smile.amazon.com, you need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. We will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation.

Red Apple Audio Workshop is one of one million eligible 501(c)(3) public charitable organizations you can choose on Amazon Smile. When you help Red Apple Audio Workshop, you're also helping ApologetiX, because everything that helps make that studio better also helps make our recordings better.

Obviously, at this time of year, people do a lot of Amazon shopping, so that 0.5% can really add up! Even better, AmazonSmile applies all year 'round.
