AmazonSmile – Shop & Give Back

Have you heard about the new AmazonSmile program? It has only been around for a few months. For nonprofits like The Reading Tub that rely on “passive fundraising,” AmazonSmile is a reason to, well, smile!

In a nutshell, AmazonSmile is Amazon, with all the features and selection of products on the main site. BUT, when you shop the AmazonSmile Foundation donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations you select.

The Reading Tub is one of the charities in the AmazonSmile philanthropic initiative. What is particularly beneficial to us is that there are no fees associated with the donation (unlike Paypal, which takes a small slice of your monetary contribution). It also doesn’t cost you anything extra!

With holiday shopping right around the corner, we thought now was a good time to invite you to support the Reading Tub via AmazonSmile. Not everyone shops on, and we can appreciate that. [We have some options for you coming soon.]

If IS one of your shopping destinations, we would be grateful for your support. We are 100% volunteer. That means 100% of any contributions we receive go to helping families and kids who need books in their lives!
