Most people in the western world are no stranger to Amazon.com–but have you heard of AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is an Amazon-operated website with the same products, prices, and shopping features as the Amazon.com that we know and love, but with an added bonus: When you shop AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate a portion of the purchase price of certain eligible products to the charitable organization of your choosing.
To get started, go to https://smile.amazon.com/ (or Google “Amazon smile”) and login with your existing Amazon credentials.
Amazon will suggest a pre-selected charitable organization; however, you have the power to choose any non-profit that is registered with AmazonSmile–including GLAIF! See the “Or pick your own charitable organization” box? This is where you’ll find us!
Simply type “Global Leadership Adventures International Foundation” into the search box. (The “International” is important, as the “GLA Foundation” that pops up as an option is not related to Global Leadership Adventures in any way!)
Once GLA International Foundation pops up, hit “select” and, voila! With just a few clicks, you are supporting projects that are making a difference around the globe. Each time you shop, be sure to log in to AmazonSmile vs Amazon so that your purchases count toward a donation; not all items are eligible, but many are. While .05% of each eligible purchase amount may be only pennies, those cents add up over time and every little bit counts toward being the “change”!
