Amazon.com has a program where 0.5% of your purchase price can be donated to the charitable organization of your choice. You can choose from the list of organizations or type in the one you’d like included. It’s an easy way to give some extra help to your favorite animal welfare organization or any charity you’d prefer. You may not think that 0.5% is much but keep in mind the amount a site such as Amazon receives in sales and that can start to add up.
The program is accessed by going to smile.amazon.com and from there you can shop the usual way you do on Amazon. Not all purchases are eligible for inclusion but if you’re like me, you do enough shopping on Amazon that surely many of your items will probably qualify.
Thank you to Amazon.com for initiating this program. Just think how wonderful it would be if more companies did this.
