Do you shop on Amazon as much as I do? I hate to admit it, but it's fast, convenient and keeps me out of the store, where I will surely put more items in my cart than what is on my list!
I recently signed up for a free program called AmazonSmile, and I'm so glad I did. This program is a simple way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you.
AmazonSmile is available at smile.amazon.com on your web browser and can be activated in the Amazon Shopping app for iOS and Android phones.
Here is an excellent article that explains the benefits and specifics of the program, if you'd like to read more.
As a non-profit 501 (3) agency, we count on (and count!) every penny that comes our way. Thank you for taking a moment to redirect .5% of your purchases in our direction!
Here are some numbers to think about:
According to Statista.com, the average American spends between $600 (non-prime) to up to $1400 (prime members) per year on Amazon purchases. The smile program donates .5% of each and every purchase to charities. A half of 1% may not seem like much, but if just 300 members and friends of our association enrolled and spent between $1000-$1400 a year on amazon, YAA stands to benefit up to $2100 from those purchases!
