    Instead of amazon.com, use smile.amazon.com and they will donate a small portion (0.5%) of your sale to a charity of your choice. It doesn't cost anything and there is no catch to it, just log in and shop normally like you would. :)

    What!?!? I wish I would've known that before I dropped $300 on gifts a few days ago :(

    That's $1.50 that could've gone to charity...well I could've not given gifts and just donated the whole $300 (but this is 'Merica :p)

    Thanks for the heads-up :thumbsup:

    You donate $1.50, imagine if a million people spent $300 on here. I know I spend more than that a year on amazon, so any little bit helps.

    Great idea... Amazon just started charging us taxes in TN... :( I'm doing most of my shopping through eBay now though... I think you can still donate there though...

    Not sure, I just heard about it recently. Here is a FAQ on the subject though. I know myself and a lot of family members use Amazon, I also donate to the wounded warrior foundation every year, this is another great way to donate.

    Must have missed this, I've been giving to the wounded warrior project for the past 5 years or so & since I found out about this it makes it easier.

    This is a great idea....and I love Amazon.... But why do I have to go to a separate site to donate? Why aren't they doing this for ALL of Amazon (and giving EVERYONE the option of donating)

    Just sayin....
