Amazon Smile

Postby Mkoll » Tue Dec 31, 2013 9:51 pm

Dear friends,

I just found out yesterday about Amazon Smile. It's a program by amazon.com where they donate 0.5% of the amount of eligible purchases to a charity you choose from their list. Same prices, amazon prime, website layout, etc. You just need to always start and buy from the URL below instead of the regular URL.

http://smile.amazon.com/

Every little bit helps! Share with others!

PS
Buddhist Global Relief (Ven. Bodhi's charity) is on the list of charities to choose from. I found out about this program from their newsletter.

Buddhaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāmi
Dhammaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāmi
Saṅghaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāmi


You live for the good of both
—your own, the other’s—
when, knowing the other’s provoked,
you mindfully grow calm.

I use http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/panel/ which allows you to donate to a chosen cause when shopping at a range of sites, including amazon. I've found it also covers abebooks and theBookDepository, which is helpful :p
