Now, simply shopping at Amazon can result in a gift to Friendship Bridge. The AmazonSmile program is the reason.
The AmazonSmile Foundation is Amazon’s giving arm of operation. It was created by Amazon to allow its customers to designate the charitable organizations to which Amazon will give. Via AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization.
To support Friendship Bridge the next time you shop at Amazon, begin your shopping by going to smile.amazon.com. The first time you visit, you will be prompted to select a charitable organization. Type “Friendship Bridge” in the search box and press the Search button. Select Friendship Bridge from the results list and begin shopping as usual. Note you will not be allowed to shop at AmazonSmile until you designate a charitable organization. Also you will need to shop at the AmazonSmile website (smile.amazon.com) in order for a donation to be made.
You may want to add a bookmark to AmazonSmile to make it easier to return to do your Amazon shopping. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registries, and other account settings on Amazon.com will carry over.
Each time you shop at AmazonSmile, a donation of 0.5% of your eligible purchases will automatically be made and collected by Amazon for delivery to Friendship Bridge. All expenses will be paid by Amazon. And we will receive the funds on a quarterly basis. So get shopping!
