What is AmazonSmile and how can it help the Folk Dance Federation?
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. Of course the Folk Dance Federation hopes you will choose to support the Federation with this easy-to-use program.
Here’s how it works!
When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the same prices, same selection and identical shopping experience as amazon.com, and Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are all the same. Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked "Eligible for AmazonSmile donation" on the product detail pages. Go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device.
How do I select a the Folk Dance Federation as the charity I want to support when shopping on AmazonSmile?
On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you have the opportunity to select a charitable organization to receive your targeted donations. AmazonSmile remembers your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make will result in a donation. If you type "folk dance federation" into the Search bar, you’ll see at least three possibilities, but the Folk Dance Federation of California should be at the top of the list. Just click [Select]!
How much of my purchase does Amazon donate?
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases (excluding rebates, shipping, gift-wrapping, taxes, or service charges). Your donations are collected and bundled with all the other people who selected the Folk Dance Federation as their charity and paid at the end of each quarter.
If you purchase three $50 gift cards, for a total of $150, 75 cents goes into your charity’s account. Then you spend $150 on your fall wardrobe – another 75 cents. The next month, you purchase a new Kindle and some e-books for $150 – caching – another 75 cents. Now imagine a hundred folk dancers who have all selected the Folk Dance Federation as their charity and they are all making similar purchases. Those 75 cent donations that accumulate over a three-month period could turn into several hundred dollars in donations for the Federation.
