Ever wish your holiday
dollars could go a little further? If you’re a frequent Amazon shopper, you
now can do some special holiday shopping and make a donation to the Friends
of the Charleston County Library.
Through the AmazonSmile web page, you get the same
Amazon deals and the AmazonSmile Foundation donates .5 percent of the
purchase price to your favorite charity. The Friends of the Charleston County
Library is a registered charitable organization with Amazon, so it’s a great
way to help the library without spending anything extra.
To take advantage of
this option, you need to access Amazon through the web address – http://smile.amazon.com.
You’ll be prompted to login and select a charity. There are more than
one million charities registered with the site. After making a selection,
you’re transferred to a page with the familiar-looking Amazon layout, and
your shopping experience is the same. To make sure your charity continues to
receive donations, you must use the special AmazonSmile
web page each time, so don’t forget to bookmark the page.
It’s a great way to
make your money go further and to make a difference in your community. For
