Looking for an easy way to show your support for the various non-profit community organizations here in Lake County? Well, here’s a method that is simple, easy, and free.
AmazonSmile, part of amazon.com, is willing to donate 0.5% of each purchase made by shoppers who have chosen a charity via the smile.amazon.com website. Doing so will not add a penny to the shopper’s purchases.
It is as simple as logging into the Smile URL with the same username and password used for every day Amazon purchases. Type in the name of charity into the search field provided, e.g., Lake County Humane Society, Two Harbors Community Radio, Two Harbors Area Food Shelf, etc…hit enter, and click on the Select button that matches your charity.
The only requirement after completing the setup is to remember to log in to smile.amazon.com each time before making a purchase. No checks to write, no boiler-room sales pitches, no endless series of emails clogging up your Inbox. Amazon eliminates the hassle.
Oh, for simple!
