Shop with a Smile

Amazon has launched a new initiative called Amazon Smile, which allows you to support your favorite charity with every purchase online. When you go to it will ask you to login to your amazon account and then choose your favorite charity organization. If you type in Special Olympics and search, a number of options will pop up including “Special Olympics Inc” and a number of state Programs that you can choose to support.

Once you have selected your charity, it automatically adds it to your profile and EVERY purchase you make sends 0.5% of that purchase to your charity. Just in time for the holidays – check it out today and support our athletes all year long!
