How to Use Amazon Smile
If you’re like most of us, an Amazon box on your doorstep is a common occurrence. But did you know that you can shop ’til you drop at Amazon while supporting the LGSF at the same time? When you visit Amazon via smile.amazon.com, a portion of your Amazon purchase is donated to the LGS Foundation. So whether you’re finally getting around to buying an instant pot or springing for a giant inflatable rainbow unicorn floatie for the lake, you’ll be helping to support those affected by LGS every time you shop. And don’t worry. It doesn’t cost a thing.
Here’s how it works:
- Visit www.smile.amazon.com and log in to your Amazon account. If you don’t already have an Amazon account, you can set one up through Amazon Smile.
- Once you’ve signed in, you will see a box that suggests a charity. Under that option is an area that states “Or pick your own charitable organization” with a space for you to type in a custom entry. There, you will add “LGS Foundation”.
- After you have completed the steps above, you will receive an email confirming your selection. Once verified, you can then start shopping and know that you are helping to impact the lives of those affected by LGS with every purchase! Most items are “Amazon Smile Eligible”, but if an item isn’t you will receive a notification.
- Be sure to share with all of your friends and family, so that their purchases can help The LGS Foundation without any additional costs.
