SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Many may spend Monday scouring Amazon for the best gift deals for the holiday season, but the website also offers an easy way to help others during the giving season, and all year round.
Users who go to Smile.Amazon.com can sign up to get half a percent of all purchases through the site donated to a charity of their choice.
Users can choose between such charities as the World Wildlife Fund, Doctors Without Borders, St. Jude Children’s Hospital or the ASPCA.
Shopping on Smile.Amazon.com is otherwise identical to shopping on the standard site, it simply diverts .5% to the charity.
You would have to spend $5,000 on Amazon for the company to pitch in $25 to your chosen program, so don’t skip your other planned donations this holiday season.
