How to use AmazonSmile on Amazon Prime Day

A step-by-step guide for using AmazonSmile, Amazon's website for giving back to charitable organizations.

As Back-to-School time approaches, we would love your extra support as you shop online. Each year we try to serve as many children in need as we can and as 4-star Charity Navigator non-profit, we’re accountable, transparent, and financially healthy! 

If you already shop on Amazon, or are shopping for the first time for Amazon Prime Days, consider switching to AmazonSmile. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization. This way you can score great deals and give back, especially on the Amazon Prime Day, July 16!

  1. Visit It’s the same as Amazon, but with the option for a portion of your purchase price to go to a charitable organization. Be sure to bookmark the page, so you never forget to shop without giving back!
  2. Create or sign into your account. Once you’ve logged in it’ll ask you to choose your charity of choice. Search and select Kids In Need Foundation in Roseville, Minnesota. We recently changed our headquarters to our Roseville, Minnesota office, so our EIN number changed.

  3. Shop away! Most items qualify for an Amazon Smile donation, but they will let you know if they don’t.
