Amazon Smile Charitable Program
SMILE.AMAZON.COM – Amazon.com Charity for Non-profits (5%)
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**
