Amazon’s launched a new initiative: AmazonSmile as a way to give 0.5% of your eligible purchases to your favorite charity as you shop within Amazon’s site (and no worries…your “prime” free shipping stays intact).
Here’s what they say about it:
“AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You can choose from nearly one million organizations to support.
Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.
You can choose from almost one million eligible 501(c)3 public charitable organizations.
