What is AmazonSmile and how does it work?
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organization. Be sure to put in Kinship Partners Inc. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers.
Is there any cost to charitable organizations or to customers?
No. There is no cost to charitable organizations or to AmazonSmile customers. The shopping experience is identical to Amazon.com with the added benefit that the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate to the charitable organizations selected by customers.
Do they charge any administrative fees or take any deduction from the donation amount?
No. Charities must register to receive donations and have a valid bank account to which we can route donations, but there is no charge to participate and they do not deduct any fees from the donation amount.
If you shop on Amazon, please be sure to bookmark http://smile.amazon.com and put in Kinship Partners Inc as the charity you wish to support! Thank you in advance.
