Currently, e-commerce sites like Amazon and Zappos are getting most, if not all, of our business. While nonprofits and local companies are struggling to survive COVID-19, Amazon has seen a sales increase of 26% this quarter [x]. It's just so convenient! And that convenience tends to outweigh the pull to support local businesses.
What if you could keep the convenience of Amazon and donate to local nonprofits at the same time? With AmazonSmile, you can! Each time you buy through AmazonSmile, 0.5% of your purchase will be given to your chosen nonprofit [x]. We know 0.5% of your purchase isn't a lot (and, frankly, with the sales increase Amazon is seeing right now, they can afford to give more), but it's a start! Getting in the habit of shopping through AmazonSmile can help nonprofits in the long run!
Here's how to get started:
Step 1: Go to smile.amazon.com
Step 2: Click "Supporting" at the top of the page
Step 3: Click "Change" from the default charity organization
Step 4: Choose between using one of the default organizations Amazon has highlighted or (we recommend) going to the section called "pick your own charitable organization"
Step 5: Type "Of Moving Colors Productions" (or the name of your organization) into the search bar
Step 6: Select Of Moving Colors Productions (or your organization) as your AmazonSmile nonprofit organization
Step 7: Bookmark AmazonSmile for easy access
Next time you make an Amazon purchase, shop through smile.amazon.com, and pat yourself on the back knowing that a little love is being sent to the nonprofits you support!
