How to Give Back While You Shop on Amazon

Amazon Prime has saved me countless times: for that birthday gift that you forgot to buy or the school supplies that you need tomorrow. If you’re as dependent as I am on Amazon (but please, when you can shop locally when you can!), you should sign up for AmazonSmile. It’s a simple way to support your favorite charity or non-profit. You can even support your child’s school. Signing up costs NOTHING. Once you sign up, you’ll shop just as you always did but with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your charity.
How to Sign Up

3. After signing in, you will be directed to the below page where you can choose the organization.

She now works from home as a freelance graphic designer and a chauffeur to her 3 busy kids. "Working on TipsFromTown has been a wonderful outlet for me. It renewed my love of publishing where I can design colorful, enticing pages online and allows me to share the things I love about being a mom." Heather grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio, a place that still is near and dear to her. " After living in Brooklyn for 18 years and studying Graphic Design at Pratt Institute, she now lives in the Jersey burbs. "I love living so close to NYC, but in my heart, I'm an Ohio girl."
