Did you know that….

Amazon.com will donate .5% of every purchase you make to the Alliance? All you have to do is ask them to (instructions below) and then make sure you shop at SMILE.amazon.com from now on. (smile.amazon.com is the same catalog of products and services at the same price as amazon.com)

That’s right. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges. From time to time, Amazon may offer special, limited time promotions that increase the donation amount on one or more products or services or provide for additional donations to charitable organizations. And they have donated more than $334 MILLION to U.S. charitable organizations in the last decade. For more details, click here.

To start Amazon supporting the Alliance is as easy as A-B-C. All you have to do is:

A. Instead of going to amazon.com to make purchases, go to smile.amazon.com.

B. Choose the charity you want to support. (Be sure to choose the US Alliance to End the Hitting of Children.)

C. You’re all set. From now on, every purchase you make that qualifies will generate a donation that AmazonSmile Foundation will automatically send to us — AS LONG AS YOU PURCHASE USING SMILE.AMAZON.COM. (The price of what you buy is the same as you would pay on regular amazon.com, so basically, it’s free money Amazon will send us!)
