Amazon has donated more than $377 million globally to charitable organizations through the AmazonSmile program since its launch in 2013. AmazonSmile provides a convenient way for customers to support charities they care about every time they shop with Amazon—from global humanitarian efforts to local hospitals and school PTAs.
Since launch, charities that focus on animals, education, health, and disaster relief were most favored by AmazonSmile customers in the U.S.
Customers who shop at smile.amazon.com will find the same Amazon they know and love, with the added bonus that AmazonSmile will donate a portion of the eligible purchase price to the charity of their choice.
