Did you know that Amazon will donate money to charity from every purchase you make? It’s a program called AmazonSmile, and it doesn’t cost you anything to sign up. The best part about it? You get to pick the charity! AmazonSmile has been around since October, and you can kick off the charitable giving simply by going to smile.amazon.com when you’re ready to shop online. Amazon has recently begun re-emphasizing the program to encourage more charitable giving by prominently featuring messages on its homepage, reminding shoppers of the AmazonSmile program. The only catch? The message only appears to customers who have visited the AmazonSmile site before. If you want to get involved, head to smile.amazon.com, choose the charity you’d like Amazon to donate to, and you’re all set! And, to make sure you never make an Amazon purchase that doesn’t give a little kickback to charity, download a browser plug-in – like Smile Always for Google Chrome – that automatically re-directs you to Smile whenever you go to Amazon.
