Good news! The OSRT Education & Research Foundation has partnered with the Amazon Smile program. When you make your next purchase on Amazon.com part of the proceeds will be donated to The Ohio Society of Radiologic Technologists Education and Research Foundation. Amazon will make a donation of 0.5% of the purchase price of almost any item (excluding digital items) to the charity of your choice. There is no cap on the amount of money Amazon will donate and there is no additional cost to the consumer. Of course OSRT hopes the charity of choice you select is The Ohio Society of Radiologic Technologists Education and Research (omit the word Foundation in your search) in order for the foundation to receive the donation.
