Smile by Amazon Prime
AmazonSmile is a program that donates a percentage of your eligible purchases on Amazon to Feeding Denver's Hungry.
AmazonSmile is a Start
Although the small percentage that we receive is not a large donation and it isn't intended to replace our regular charitable activities, AmazonSmile is still a great way to take advantage of a service we're using anyways.
Start at "Smile.Amazon.com"
All you need to do is start your shopping at "smile.amazon.com". The donation will be made at no extra cost to you.
Whether you volunteer your time, make monetary donations, or participate in charitable events, you probably support an organization that aids those in need in some way or another.
If you're looking for a simple, automatic way to continue supporting your favorite charity, you should start your Amazon shopping at smile.amazon.com. You shop as you normally would on the site, at no extra cost to you, and you don't need to make a separate account.
Through AmazonSmile, Amazon donates a small percentage of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to a charity of your choice. Almost one million 501(c)(3) public charitable organizations participate in AmazonSmile, so whichever one you have on your mind is likely in its roster.
Spotlight charities include the World Wildlife Fund, ASPCA, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, but you can also search by location or specific name to choose the one you want. You can also change the charity recipient at any time.
You'll be able to tell you're shopping from the correct page if you see the AmazonSmile logo in the corner of the page and "Supporting [charity of your choice]" below the search bar. When you hover over the name of the charity, you can see additional information about it and track the donation amount you've generated through your purchases.
Tens of millions of products are eligible for donations — just look for "Eligible for AmazonSmile donation" on its product detail page. At this time, Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals aren't eligible for AmazonSmile.
Since it is the AmazonSmile Foundation is directly making the donation for you, you won't pay extra for anything when you use AmazonSmile. However, this also means you won't receive a tax deduction.
The small percentage that is donated is obviously not a large amount and you would need to spend a lot of money in order to generate a significant donation, but the program is still an easy way to supplement your existing charitable contributions to your favorite organization. If you're already shopping on Amazon, it never hurts to start doing so from AmazonSmile so your charity of choice can reap some benefits.
