Something to (Amazon) Smile About!


Are you getting ready to do your online holiday shopping?  Last year, $1.7 billion was spent shopping online during the annual Black Friday – Cyber Monday weekend.  Did you know that you can help The Salvation Army by making your purchases through Amazon Smile?  For every online purchase, Amazon Smile will donate 0 .5% to the Salvation Army.  All you have to do is designate us  - The Salvation Army Eastern Michigan -- as your charity of choice.

It is hard to believe that something so easy can also do so much good!  Amazon Smile – is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. You’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. 

Tens of millions of products are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for donation” on their product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.

The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges. From time to time, they even offer special, limited time promotions that increase the donation amount on one or more products or services or provide for additional donations to charitable organizations. Special terms and restrictions may apply. 

We are thankful to Amazon for this program that helps so many give and give back at the same time.
