Now, Amazon sells almost everything and we use it to shop because the savings are great, shipping is free and returns are hassle-free. Year-end Report In the last fiscal year, we purchased $13,205.81 through the Fellowship’s web site, for a total of $502.29 sent to the Fellowship. It wasn’t just books!
