It’s Amazon Prime Day! As you get started clicking and saving, there’s one more step you should be taking – donating to charity.
It’s easier than it sounds – instead of purchasing at Amazon.com, go to Smile.Amazon.com and Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to a charitable organization at no cost to you! I now make all of my Amazon purchases this way and every time I buy something, I’m helping raise money for St. Jude’s. It’s the easiest way to give back I’ve seen.
There’s absolutely no cost to you and there’s no difference in the website or to your account. You use the same account and basically the same Amazon page. There are almost a million eligible charities that you can choose from. The AmazonSmile Foundation donates 0.5% of the purchase price from eligible purchases. That can really add up over time and make a huge difference to some of these organizations.
As you’re shopping for Prime Day, don’t forget to Smile and donate!
