Do You Know About Amazon Smile?

Yes, I’m going to sound like a commercial today. But it’s for a good cause—or more accurately, nearly a million of them. 🙂


I believe it was JP Barnaby who first clued me in about AmazonSmile. This is a program that allows you to select a charitable organization that will receive a donation when you make an Amazon purchase. (Not all purchases; for example, Subscribe-and-Save orders don’t count. Eligible items will have an “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” note.)


All you have to do is shop at Amazon using the URL, and the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price you pay for an item to the charity you choose. (For more info, go here.)


To sign up, go to the AmazonSmile URL and choose a charity. You can even request a new charity be added if you like. (I signed up for Lost-N-Found Youth, an Atlanta-based organization that focuses on homeless LGBT youth.)


Check it out! Every little bit helps. 🙂
