A new program launched by Amazon called AmazonSmile, enables Amazon shoppers to donate 0.5% of their purchases ($.50 per $100 spent) to their favorite U.S.-based nonprofits. Essentially shoppers visit Amazon via a special Web address http://smile.amazon.com instead of the normal www.Amazon.com homepage; and through a partnership with GuideStar USA shoppers can select any 501(c)(3) in the GuideStar USA database.
Customers shop as usual and 0.5% of the purchase price from eligible AmazonSmile purchases is donated to the nonprofit identified. The donations are made from The AmazonSmile Foundation and as such the company, not Amazon shoppers, will receive the tax benefits for the donations.
