Amazon Smile

When you designate JAHA as a charity to support while shopping on Amazon, .5% of the purchase price of many things you buy will be donated directly to JAHA through direct deposit. There is no additional cost to the consumer for this.

 However, the trick is to always be sure you start shopping from the smile.amazon.com address in the future, rather than the regular Amazon address – it will remember your charity, and even keep track of your donations! You can tell you’re in the right place when you see the Amazon Smile logo in the upper left corner, rather than the regular logo.
