How many things are you about to order from Amazon? If you're shopping there anyways, change your website to AmazonSmile. What is it? A real website operated by Amazon, same products, same Prime shipping, and .5% of the purchase price goes to the charity of your choice. Yes, I know .5% isn't really THAT much money. However, think about how many millions of dollars Americans will spend on Amazon during the next month. It can add up to help someone.
I still encourage your time and money directly to causes you care about, but if you're shopping anyways, may as well help someone a little bit.
Let's make a difference with our Xmas shopping this year!
