Donating without spending any extra money may sound too good to be true but if you’re already an Amazon shopper, then welcome to AmazonSmile. Anyone with an Amazon account can shop through smile.amazon.com and donate 0.5% of their Amazon purchases to Raymond Central Teammates. The great thing about this is, you do not donate your own money, the donation comes from Amazon!
“AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service,” according to the AmazonSmile website. The AmazonSmile website looks identical to the regular Amazon website, the only difference is that you’re making a difference with your purchases.
The donations raised through AmazonSmile will go to support student scholarships and background checks for mentors. Through your Amazon account, it is possible to track not only how much money you have personally donated to the cause but you can also see how much the organization as a whole has acquired through the program.
If you already shop at Amazon, please consider going through AmazonSmile. Very few items on the website are not AmazonSmile eligible.
To set up your donation, visit https://smile.amazon.com and search Teammates Mentoring Program. If you are already supporting a program and would like to switch to TeamMates Mentoring Program, look for the yellow writing under the search box that says “supporting;” selecting that will bring up an option to change.
