I’m sure all of you are shopping on Amazon, as we can all witness their trucks passing by in our neighborhoods multiple times a day. Now, do you know that you could shop on Amazon with a purpose. Yes, there is a program called Amazonsmile that donates money to eligible charities when you purchase on the giant retailer’s website.
Through this program, you are able to select the charity of your choice. We highly recommend you picking the Bobby Jo Lewis Foundation. This will donate 0.5% of everything you spend on Amazon to help our cause. Yes, you are reading that 0.5% will make a difference but we all know that we all spend quite a bit of money on this platform, and know some of the drivers on a first name basis…
So yes, any dollar amount will make a difference, and remember it’s not coming from you but from one of the highest grossing organizations in the world. They are giving back for you, and all you need to do is do some shopping on Amazon.
Seems quite simple I know, but you need to set this up, and we will walk you through this.
