Happy Holidays! With all the events going on, you’re bound to find yourself shopping for a couple gifts to give to loved ones. Wouldn’t it be cool if your shopping could contribute to something more than just bringing a smile to someone you know? With AmazonSmile, your shopping can help millions of children across the world smile by just shopping through smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com.
AmazonSmile is an easy way to support Children Beyond Our Borders, Inc. at no cost to you. AmazonSmile is no different from the Amazon you know and love; the same low prices, and easy shopping experience. There is just one difference. At check-out, AmazonSmile will ask you to select your favorite charitable organization, in this case the organization you’d select would be CBOB, and 0.5% of your purchase price will be donated towards that organization instead of being collected for profit. That may sound small, but imagine how much it would add up if every shopper participated. However, not every single product is eligible for the program, so be sure to check for the "Eligible for AmazonSmile" indication on your product before purchasing!
The best thing about the program is how easy AmazonSmile is to use. No, you don’t need to make a separate account from your original Amazon account, and no, you won’t lose your shopping cart or wish list when switching to AmazonSmile. Everything transfers; the only difference is the URL you type onto the webpage!
Whether it is Hanukkah, Christmas, a birthday, or New Year’s, every gift can become a gift to someone else too. Donations can help bring warmth to those in need, and happiness to those without. At CBOB, our children are grateful for every donation received. Whether our children are global or local, we ensure that we help as much as we can so they can live the amazing life they deserve. For this reason, the CBOB family fully supports AmazonSmile and fully recommends that you use it throughout your holiday shopping. Lending just one hand can make a drastic difference in the world today, let’s fight poverty together with AmazonSmile today! Will you lend a helping hand?
