You want a short and sweet way to Do Good? Just SMILE. In fact, if we all SMILED for 1 year, we would raise $375 Million for charities and it would not cost us a cent. Amazon on the other hand would be laying out some serious cash...
Amazon.Com has a charitable program called Amazon Smile. Instead of shopping at Amazon.Com, you simply go to Smile.Amazon.Com. Everything will look exactly the same - same prices, same Prime benefits, same products...with one crucial difference. By entering through Amazon Smile, .5% of your purchase totals will be donated to a charity that you choose!
We have all done it. We buy some gadget or gizmo from Amazon that we really didn't need. You start to feel the guilt - was it really wise to spend money on this thing? With Amazon Smile, you see that your totally unnecessary gadget purchase actually provided completely necessary funds to a charity. Boom - a charity gets money and you get to enjoy your unnecessary but totally fun gadget guilt free.
Amazon Smile is not perfect. Not every product is eligible for the .5% donation to charity...but as Amazon Smile cost nothing and in no way limits your Amazon experience, why not do it? Take 3 minutes right now and DO GOOD today! Head over to Amazon Smile and setup your charity. Then reward yourself and the charity by buying that totally sick ice cream maker you have been eyeing!
