According to Amazon’s founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, half of all shopping done online this holiday season will be on Amazon.com. Last year, online sales between November 1st and December 31st totaled $91.7 billion according to Fortune.com. What many shopping online may not know is that they can support their favorite charities while buying gifts during the holiday season through Amazon Smile.
With Amazon Smile, you can designate your favorite charity to receive 0.5% of what you spend online. All you have to do is go to smile.amazon.com, select your charity, and shop as usual. That’s it. You can even install a browser add-on to ensure that your favorite charity benefits every time you shop on Amazon, even if you don’t start your shopping session at smile.amazon.com.
We hope that you’ll select “Affirmation Gay and Lesbian Mormons” when you use Amazon Smile for your online shopping this holiday season and beyond. It’s an easy way to support Affirmation while doing something you would do anyway.
Of course, you can always directly support Affirmation’s work by making a one-time donation or setting up monthly donations.
Your support means so much in Affirmation’s efforts to connect and support LGBT Mormons, their family members, and friends throughout the world.
