Did you know you can shop on Amazon and have a portion of your purchase donated back to Cooley’s Anemia Foundation? Just use AmazonSmile when shopping Amazon. It costs you nothing and CAF gets a donation from Amazon!
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support CAF every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping and handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges.
The amount that the AmazonSmile Foundation donates as a result of your AmazonSmile purchase is not tax deductible by you because it is a donation from AmazonSmile Foundation, not you. But you have the satisfaction of knowing that your purchases created the donation.
On your first visit to AmazonSmile, smile.amazon.com, you need to select Cooley’s Anemia Foundation as your charitable organization before you begin shopping in order for CAF to receive donations from eligible purchases. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com from then on will result in a donation. In essence, all you are doing is entering Amazon through the AmazonSmile site instead of the regular Amazon site. If you already have an Amazon account it can be transferred to AmazonSmile.
And here’s another way you can get the AmazonSmile Foundation to support CAF – have your employer use their corporate Amazon account through AmazonSmile, choosing Cooley’s Anemia Foundation as their charity! That way, whatever purchases they make will result in the 0.5% donation. This would apply to office supplies, corporate gifts or giveaways, or anything else.
