This isn’t about being a consumer, I just wanted to point out that one very simple way to contribute to your community or favorite charity is to make sure that when you’re shopping online, you have the Amazon Smile feature turned on. When you consider who you’re donating to, there are three big considerations I recommend:
- Does it matter to you whether or not your money benefits local efforts?
- Does the organization’s values line up with yours?
- Is the majority of the donations go into the organizations services to their clients…or is it going into advertising/awareness campaigns?
If you’ve never used Amazon Smile, or just need a refresher on how to, you can follow the link below:
