Amazon Smile lets you donate to veterans while you shop online

November 19, 2018 - 2:32 pm

Doing good for veterans while spending money takes the sting out of your holiday shopping.

Amazon Smile makes that happen.  And even better - Amazon donates the money, not you.

The best news: there are over 400 veterans organizations that you can choose from to donate to.

Here's how it works:

Do all your Amazon shopping through smile.Amazon.com.  Once you sign into Amazon smile, your regular Amazon account links to it. Select your favorite veterans organization to recieve the donation, and Amazon will remember it until to change (its easy to change).  We found over 400 veterans organizations by searching the word "veteran."  The rewarding part: so many of the organizations are small, local organizations that need help.

Once you hit "buy," Amazon will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to that organization.

The donation comes from Amazon's pockets, not yours.
