Support Collingswood Schools When You Shop On Amazon

Cause Marketing, buying specific products that has a result of a  donation being made towards a cause, is not new. With the ease of ordering products online, supporting these causes can be done from the comfort of your living room or anywhere thanks to internet-connected mobile devices. Amazon’s Smile program boasts over 50 million dollars being donated to various causes through their website since May 2017. 

From Amazon.com’s website:

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You can choose from nearly one million organizations to support.

How much of my purchase does Amazon donate?

The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile 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, we may 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. Please see the relevant promotion for complete details.

Direct donations, attending events, along with other opportunities throughout the school year of course make the biggest impact. But if you are looking for a way to do some good with your Amazon habit, I would recommend setting up an Amazon Smile account. My family essentially makes a donation each week with our grocery order.
