Smile! You can support your favorite quilty charity on Amazon

March 22, 2016

You can now support the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild with every purchase you make on Amazon!

What is “Smile”?
It is the AmazonSmile Foundation:
The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile Foundation. In turn, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates those amounts to the charitable organizations selected by our customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile. 

How does AmazonSmile work? 
When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization from almost one million eligible organizations. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organization. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization.

How do I set up AmazonSmile?

2. Each time you shop on Amazon, shop through their site and you’ll be donating to your favorite charity, at no extra cost to you!
