Like you really needed another excuse to shop at Amazon!
Now every purchase you make from this worlds biggest online store can support the charity of your choice, including Team of H.O.P.E.
Through its new AmazonSmile program, Amazon will donate 0.5 percent of the price of your eligible purchase to the 501(c)(3) public charitable organization of your choice.
Yes we know, half a percent isn’t much but it adds up, costs you nothing and is a great additional way to support our mission.
The one-time setup takes just a couple of seconds (instructions below), and you get the same prices, products and service you’re used to when shopping at Amazon. It doesn’t cost you any extra; the only difference is now you’re helping Team of H.O.P.E. every time you buy.
Step 1: Go to smile.amazon.com
You’ll use this link to register and for all your future Amazon shopping.
Even after you’ve signed up for AmazonSmile and selected a charity, shopping through the regular amazon.com won’t benefit that charity. You need to use the smile.amazon.com link from now on.
Step 2: Sign in using your normal Amazon.com login
Step 3: Search for the “Helping Out People Everywhere Inc”
Step 4: Check the top-left corner and start shopping
If you see AmazonSmile in the top left corner and the correct charity in the “Supporting: [Your charity here]” line, you’ve done it right.
Step 6: Double-check that the product you’re buying is eligible
Most items sold by Amazon qualify, but confirm that on the product page. It’ll say “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation.” And this is a good time to triple-check that you see AmazonSmile and the proper charity at the top-left corner.
Step 7: Check out!
This part you should be used to.
Purchase the item(s), and smile. :)
