Default Amazon - shop on Amazon and give to your favorite charity at no cost to you

We do a lot of shopping on Amazon. Many people are not aware that you can shop on Amazon and give to your favorite charity at no cost to you. Every time I shop, Amazon gives money to my charity of choice.

To learn more about Amazon Smile click on the link and sign up!

If you don't know a good charity to support, I chose Humane Society of Sumter County...

Thanks for the great heads up about Amazon Smile.
I enrolled, and I also chose the Humane Society.

Thanks, Angie. I signed up for Smile last year and then forgot all about it. I order a crap ton of stuff from Amazon -- here's a plug for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.

I am glad you chose the local Humane Society. The money that come back to them from the main chapter ain't squat.

I must have missed the part about being humble.
I love the idea that when I use Amazon, a donation is made to my charity.
Fred, don't you that that anything that raises money for charity is a good thing?
Kudos to Angie for starting this thread.

I am completely baffled in trying to comprehend the reasoning for posting this?!?!?!?


Angie ..... thanks for posting this topic. It is completely painless way to donate to a non profit of your choice.

BTW: if someone's non profit of choice is not a selection option. Please let the non profit know about the program. The application process to be on Amazon Smile's approved list is simple and quick.
