AmazonSmile Will Donate Part of Your Purchases to United Way of Defiance County
DEFIANCE, OHIO (NOVEMBER 13, 2014) – The turkey hasn’t defrosted yet, but Christmas cheer is everywhere. Whether you are ready for it, or not, Christmas will be here in less than 5 weeks. The holiday season can be a balancing act of busy schedules, budgeting Santa, the gas bill, and don’t forget the plethora opportunities to give to charity. Here’s a small way you can make a difference right from the comfort of your couch. AmazonSmile has made it possible to give to your charity of choice without even getting out of your pajamas. As cyber deals sweep us into hours of online browsing, I encourage you to consider another online shopping option that would allow you to donate, without costing you a dime.
Amazon has a program called AmazonSmile, which will automatically donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to the charity you select. It costs you and the charitable organizations nothing. It’s a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization this holiday season, and year round when you shop. When you shop smile.amazon.com, you will find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com. You can use your existing Amazon.com account on AmazonSmile and on your first visit to AmazonSmile, you can select a charitable organization to receive donations before you begin shopping. United Way of Defiance County is an option for your donations, and we encourage you to try out smile.amazon.com instead of Amazon.com to help make a difference in Defiance County. For more information on where United Way of Defiance County money goes, check out our funded programs at www.unitedwaydefiance.org.
