    "On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. We will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation."

    I think it's 0.5% of your purchase, no questions asked, no additional costs for you. Comes out of Amazon's bottom line. I spend about $5,000 per year on Amazon (shit). So that's $25 a year that a charity didn't have before.

    My charity of choice is Little Pink Houses of Hope. They give free week-long vacations to cancer patients and their families. We won a trip several years ago, and it was a wonderful experience. This, plus regular monthly donations anyway, is my way of giving back for Jeannine and others giving their time and energy to families all over the world.

    I do alot of shopping on Amazon but wish we can just tick a box in our account to enable donations, going to a smile.amazon i probably wont be doing that.

    It's literally the Amazon homepage, just on a subdomain. I just keep it in my Bookmarks Bar as "Amazon".

    Awesome, thanks for sharing this. Although i do not buy that much on Amazon I can't see any negative side of using this! Supporting "The Nature Conservancy" now and will be using smiles from now on! :)

    This is one of those things that I always think about but never do. Bookmarking it as your homepage seems like a good way to do it.

    I don't buy on Amazon since it's not available in my country, but it's a cool feature.

    How about we set-up a mutual charity, call it something along the lines of "For Those In Need, In Need Of A Better Life" and share the profits between us?

    We can use the Ste Fishkin moneymaking tip to drive traffic to it.
