How to use Amazon Smile

A perfect way to support the charity of your choice during the holidays! 

Amazon is one of the most widely used websites in the world. We were pleased to hear that, customers can now elect to donate 0.5% of their purchase to the charity of their choice. This is all made possible by shopping on smile.amazon.com.

If you already shop on Amazon, or if you’re looking for the perfect gift for a loved one, we invite you to shop at smile.amazon.com and choose VIP Community Services as your charity of choice. Below you can read about how to use Amazon Smile.

How Does it Work? 

 

1. Visit smile.amazon.com
