Give a Little…

I have the absolute EASIEST way to give back to your favorite charity or foundation.  Amazon has created a platform called AmazonSmile that you shop through and they donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to your selected charity at no cost to you.  Our family does a lot of our shopping through Amazon and even though 0.5% of a purchase may not sound like a lot, it definitely adds up.

You can use your AmazonSmile account on your computer or via the Amazon App on your smart phone. I will show you how to do both in this post.

How to sign up for an AmazonSmile:
  1. Type into your web browser.
  2. Sign in using your existing Amazon account (if you do not have one, you will need to create one)
  3. Select your charity.  You can browse suggested ones or if you know the charity you want to support, you can search for it.
  4. Start shopping.  Any qualifying purchase will prompt a 0.5% donation from AmazonSmile automatically.
How to use AmazonSmile on the Amazon App:

It is important to note that you must have an existing AmazonSmile in order to use it through your app.  You cannot sign up for AmazonSmile initially through the App.  Once you have an AmazonSmile account, you can set your Amazon App to use AmazonSmile.

  1. Download the Amazon Shopping App from the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play (Android)
  2. Open the Amazon Shopping app
  3. Tap on Settings (3 lines on bottom right of screen) and then select “AmazonSmile”
  4. Select your charity and then follow the on-screen instructions to turn ON AmazonSmile in the mobile app
  5. Once AmazonSmile has been turned on in your app, future eligible app purchases will generate a donation for the charity you have selected.

Local Charities

Here at Texas Frozen Tropics, we love to support local charities and foundations.  I would like to highlight two for you guys.  Check out these charities and if you feel so inclined, maybe choose them to receive your AmazonSmile donations!

First up: The Kailee Mills Foundation

This family has turned an absolute tragedy into educational opportunity for others to learn about vehicle safety and raise awareness of the importance of wearing your seat belt.  Check out their website. Click here to learn more.

Next, Kirstyn’s Krew 

This young girl used her own experience in the foster care system to create a non-profit organization that brings joy to children in the foster care system by raising money to buy them Christmas presents.  What a remarkable girl Kirstyn is to be able to turn a difficult personal experience into a charity that positively impacts hundreds of children.  Way to go Kirstyn!

I would encourage you to use your shopping for good.  This literally costs you nothing extra but can make an impact in the lives of other.

Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we GIVE.”  Isn’t that the truth? So go out and make a LIFE worth living today. Give what you can. You will be amazed at how much your own heart will be impacted by simply making the decision to do good.
