If you are an on-line shopper and you also like supporting local causes, you can now combine the two with Amazon Smile. The Foundation strongly believes in shopping locally as much as possible (after all, our local businesses are some of our biggest supporters, so we choose to support them) but sometimes, on-line shopping is the only option. In that case, you can at least feel better knowing that you can make a charitable donation that will benefit local health care. It’s also an easy way for those who live out of town or out of state to give back to their home town!
A little info about the program:
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers.
How does AmazonSmile work?
When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization–in this case, the Big Stone Health Care Foundation–from almost one million eligible organizations. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organization. Click here for a direct link to the Foundation’s charity page.
