Amazon Donates To Charity Of Your Choice....

Like most people I have a love/hate relationship with Amazon. A few years ago I discovered that you can have Amazon donate a portion of your purchases to the charity of your choosing. Well, those that are listed on their list....

Donations to the charities are doled out quarterly. Yes, Amazon gets the tax benefit. But that isn't important to me as it is coming out of their pockets, not mine.

I have found some of the regular subscription items we receive do not count. And you do have to use a slightly different web address. Smile.Amazon.com I have done price comparisons and product look ups on the normal site and everything matches.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson's Research is our selection, mainly due to it striking so close to home....

If any of you are heavy Amazon shoppers, especially near the holidays I highly recommend using this feature. For most charities every little bit helps.

The attached image highlights mine and others impact to the selected charity.

*** AmazonSmile donation totals

After you place a qualifying smile.amazon.com order, it may take several days for the amount “you have generated” to update. Donation amounts will be updated several days after your order ships and donations resulting from pre-ordered items will take longer to update. The amount “you have generated” is based on all of your previous eligible smile.amazon.com orders even if you have supported a different AmazonSmile charity or charities in the past.

Donations are issued to registered charities quarterly via electronic bank account deposit. The most recent donations were sent in November 2017. All donation amounts listed are inclusive of donations since the beginning of the AmazonSmile program: October, 2013. ***

We have been doing it for years. We chose our local high school's debate team.

Facebook is more evil than Apple, Amazon, and Google combined.

I've been using Amazon smile for years as well. Hyperacusis Research Ltd. is my current choice.

Here's another way to donate to charity & Amazon picks up the shipping cost + you get the tax write off!

Give Back Box

We donated 10 large boxes last year! Fill the box, printout the shipping label & schedule a USPS pickup. Can't get much easier than that!
