"It’s so easy to help out Bayit Lepletot! I logged onto amazon smile and each time I order I know that I’m doing a little something to help out!! I’ve send the link to my family and friends as well. Imagine what we all can do with little effort on our part.

What Is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) offers all of the same items, prices, and benefits of its sister website, Amazon.com, but with one distinct difference. When users shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation contributes 0.5 percent of eligible purchases to the charity of your choice. Especially for frequent Amazon users, this additional perk is a great way to give back to charities effortlessly.
Since its launch in 2013, AmazonSmile has supported nearly one million charities and has donated over $80 million (as of February 2018). The website is identical to Amazon’s main site, and consumers can quickly browse and shop for items. They can even take advantage of Prime membership benefits, sales and more.
All users have to do is to visit smile.amazon.com (amazon.com and Amazon mobile app purchases do not apply) to earn 0.5 percent of their eligible purchase for their favorite nonprofit or cause.
There is no cost to charities or customers, and 100 percent of the donation generated from eligible purchases goes to the consumer’s charity of choice.

Want to support a different charity than the one you first chose? You can change your charity any time by logging into AmazonSmile and clicking “Accounts & Lists,” then scrolling down to “Your AmazonSmile.” From there, click “Change charity” under “Your current charity” on the top right.
