With the holiday season fast approaching, Nick is getting excited to do some shopping!
We know this time of year is the time people are getting gifts, and ordering special treats for themselves and their loved ones.
We wanted to take a few minutes to remind Awesome in Action supporters of a great way to donate just by shopping.
Awesome in Action is a non-profit organization recognized by the Amazon Smile program. When you shop using Amazon Smile and have Awesome in Action selected as your registered charity, 0.5% of your purchases go directly to Awesome in Action with no extra cost to you.
To get to Amazon Smile, you can simply type smile.amazon.com in your address bar on your choice of internet browser. You do need to make sure you are on smile.amazon.com for the donation from your purchases to be processed.
To select Awesome in Action as your registered charity, go to smile.amazon.com, and underneath the search bar there is an option to click “Supporting:” where you can search for Awesome in Action Co.
All of your purchases, and donations generated by them are private, and no one can see your activity except you and Amazon, including the charitable organization you support.
A great way to make sure you’re always using Amazon Smile is by downloading an extension to your internet browser. These extensions will make sure you are always using Amazon Smile for purchases on Amazon.

If you prefer not to use an app, there isn’t currently a way to add extensions to mobile web browsers, but you can always just remind yourself to use smile.amazon.com in your mobile browser.
