How would you like to have a portion of the dollars you spend on Amazon purchases automatically go to your favorite charity?
It's called AmazonSmile, it's totally free and it couldn't be eaier.
Just go to Smile.Amazon. com and designate a charity you’d like to support. There are over a million listed in their directory, so finding one you love is almost certain.
After that, use the same site for your Amazon shopping and 0.5% of the purchase price of every qualifying product will be automatically donated to your designated charity. It’s that easy—you can even use your existing Amazon account.
As you can probably tell, we’re really excited about this new way to support worthy charities and help people out. We only wish that Amazon was promoting it more. So you may want to forward this blog to your friends, family and colleagues to help get the word out.
And don’t forget to notify your procurement department because company purchases also qualify. When we found out about AmazonSmile, we immediately signed up. It’s nice knowing that a portion of our office purchases is finding its way to the local chapter of the United Way, which has long been our favorite charity.
After all, giving back is great and everyone doing their part makes all the difference.
In fact, it kind of makes you smile.
