AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon.com that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon. The difference is that when customers shop at AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), their foundation donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers. There is no cost to the charitable organization or to the AmazonSmile customer. Prices for products on AmazonSmile are the same as on the Amazon.com website.
How to get started:
Click on smile.amazon.com. If you already have an account with amazon.com, it will prompt you to select a charitable organization. Type in Dayspring United Methodist Church and follow the prompts to have this set up as the charitable organization that you wish to receive donations from the AmazonSmile Foundation. If you don’t currently have an account, you can set up an account.
It’s very simple to set this up. Then whenever you want to shop on Amazon, simply go to smile.amazon.com to do your shopping. If you forget and go directly to amazon.com, a prompt will ask you if you want to redirect to smile.amazon.com, so it is very easy to use.
The donations received by the church are from the Amazon Smile Foundation and not you as an individual, so there will be no information given to the church about who did the purchase or what the purchase was for. It is completely anonymous. Thank you!
