Nowadays, everyone seems to shop Amazon…for pretty much everything. So, I’m just making sure that everyone is using AmazonSmile for their purchases.
AmazonSmile is the same Amazon we know and love, but is found at a different url: smile.amazon.com
Just log in with your regular account information, choose a charity, and place your order – then Amazon will donate .5% of the purchase price to your charity [eligible purchases only – but I haven’t even come across any items that don’t qualify yet].
I added a quick link to my phone’s homepage so that I am certain to make all my purchases through AmazonSmile.
Here are the instructions for you to do the same:
To be clear, .5% is not much. I don’t spend that much on Amazon, and I’ve been spending less and less as time goes on, but if I’m going to order something, my charity might as well get a little kickback. As it says below, “every little bit helps.” Over the course of time and with everyone using it, the amount of money can be significant.
Here’s my impact since I started:
Ok, so $13.67 seems a little underwhelming, but that’s $13.67 that wouldn’t have gone to this charity and I didn’t have to do anything other than make my regular purchases through smile.amazon.com.
So, why not?
Please, please, please tell me you are already using AmazonSmile! And what charity do you support?
