SMILE.AMAZON.COM – Amazon.com Charity for Non-profits (5%)
By shopping at smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com, 0.5 percent of the value of consumer purchases will be donated to Redeemer Lutheran School.
If you’re an online shopper, you can support Redeemer Lutheran School by using smile.amazon.com every time you shop! You’ll see the same products, pricing, and service. Sign into your Amazon account and select Redeemer Lutheran School as your preferred charitable organization.
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets you enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the eligible charitable organization of your choice.
**The most important thing to know in order to take advantage of this simple way of giving is this - after signing up for AmazonSmile, supporters must ALWAYS type the word "smile." into the URL address field on your computer, phone, and to an electronic device, before "amazon.com." Your device will likely pull up Amazon.com vs. Smile.Amazon.com as a default. Consider bookmarking "Smile.Amazon.com" on your device for ease in accessing after set-up**
