Support CRG with AmazonSmile

Posted on: Dec 11, 2014

Are you like many shoppers out there who prefer to do their shopping from the sweet comfort of their couch than go to the store? Are you looking forward to Cyber Monday more than Black Friday? Do you buy everything you need, or maybe just a few things you want, from Amazon.com? Maybe you feel a little guilty about your online shopping sprees? Well, there’s no reason to feel guilty anymore because, with Amazon’s new site AmazonSmile, each purchase you make on Smile.Amazon.com can make an automatic donation to the Carolina Rollergirls, at no cost to you!

AmazonSmile is an easy and automatic way to support just about any charity, but of course you want to support your favorite Rollergirls. Each time you make an eligible purchase on AmazonSmile, 0.5% of the sale price will go to the charity of your choosing. 100% of the donation amount goes to the charity. i If you’re worried about losing items you’ve saved to your Wish List or having to reenter all your account information, there is no need to worry. Amazon.com and AmazonSmile use a single account sign on. You can manage all of your Amazon information, including purchases and Wish Lists, from AmazonSmile and vice versa. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you get all of your Prime discounts and benefits on AmazonSmile. For purchases to be eligible for donations, they must be made at AmazonSmile url: smile.amazon.com.

It’s easy to get started on AmazonSmile. Just follow the steps below: How to Set Up AmazonSmile

• Go to http://smile.amazon.com/

• If you have an Amazon Account, enter your login and password. If you don’t (why don’t you, seriously?), create one. It’s as simple as that.

• Once you login or create your much needed Amazon account, you will be asked to choose your charity. At this point, you could choose from thousands of eligible charities, but what you really want to do is type in “Carolina Roller Derby” to find us. Hit search!

• All you have to do now is hit select

• You’re ready to shop now! Just make sure you bookmark smile.amazon.com and return to that url anytime you’re having an online shopping spree so that all your eligible purchases make a donation to the Carolina Rollergirls. If you’re a Chrome user, you don’t even have to bookmark AmazonSmile. The Chrome extension Smile Always will automatically bring you to smile.amazon.com anytime you navigate to Amazon.com. The extension is available at here: chrome extension

While any purchases you make on smile.amazon.com from your computer, mobile phone, or tablet (including Kindle Fire devices) are eligible for donations, purchases made on the Amazon shopping app or from a Kindle E-reader through the Kindle store are not eligible. Remember, the more you buy and the more you shop on AmazonSmile with Carolina Roller Derby as your selected, the more you give to the Carolina Rollergirls! Even your small occasional purchases make a difference, so remember the next time you shop on Amazon shop on smile.amazon.com.
