Good news, folks! We are now a registered AmazonSmile Foundation recipient for our charitable organization. What does that mean exactly? Here’s a quick summary of this process.

What is AmazonSmile?

In October 2013, Amazon announced that it was launching a philanthropy program called AmazonSmile. This foundation lives under the larger Amazon brand, and acts as a different domain where Amazon shoppers can contribute to the charity or organization of their choice.

What does AmazonSmile entail?

You still get to enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop at smile.amazon.com, any physical item that you purchase (excluding Kindle e-books) qualifies for donation. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to a charity that you specify.

What does this mean for Adoption & Beyond?

Now that Adoption & Beyond is an AmazonSmile foundation recipient, you can support us while you shop! When you follow this link, you can opt-in to support our not-for-profit organization whenever you shop on AmazonSmile.

It’s been a fifteen year journey that got us to where we are today, and if you’d like to see us continue our work, then we’d love to see you use AmazonSmile!

As always, thank you all for your ongoing support as we keep our mission going.
