According to Retail Dive, last year, Americans spent 24% of their holiday dollars on Amazon. With AmazonSmile, shoppers can quickly and easily turn those expenditures into donations to Disabled Veterans Charities.
With AmazonSmile, shoppers can make eligible purchases online and Amazon will donate .5% of the price to the 501(c)(3) charitable organization of their choice, including Disabled Veterans Charities. There’s no cost to the organization or to the customer to take part in the program.
We fund local Southern California organizations who provide support to at-risk veterans and their families, with an emphasis on eliminating homelessness. To earmark your AmazonSmile donations to the organization, simply follow these three steps:
- Select Disabled Veterans Charities as the charitable organization of your choice.
- Shop for tens of millions of products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation”.
- Automatically, we will receive .5 % of the purchase price, excluding shipping, handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, and service charges, less any rebates or returns.
While .5% may not seem like a lot, every dollar counts when it comes to providing much-needed services to at-risk veterans.
