What is Amazon Smile?
Amazon Smile is a program in Amazon that allows a percentage of your purchase proceeds to go towards a charity of your choice.
What does it cost me? Does it add to my purchased items?
Participating in Amazon Smile does not cost you anything, nor does it add anything to the cost of your purchased items.
