Some of you have asked if there are any other ways that you can help support the TREE Foundation. Now there is!
The Foundation is now a member of AmazonSmile, a charitable giving program from Amazon.com that will donate a portion of your purchases to a charity of your choice every time you shop at AmazonSmile. We hope you will select the TREE Foundation as your charity.
AmazonSmile has the exact same products, prices, and features that you normally see at Amazon.com. To get to AmazonSmile, you simply go to smile.amazon.com in your browser, instead of amazon.com. The difference is that when you purchase eligible items through AmazonSmile, 0.5% of your purchase price goes to your selected charity, such as the TREE Foundation, at no cost to you. It may seem like a small amount, but when many people are using it for their everyday purchases, it can be substantial.
One question some may have is if the amount of your donation from purchases through AmazonSmile is tax deductible. Unfortunately no: “Donations are made by the AmazonSmile Foundation and are not tax deductible by you.”
To get started, all you need to do is go to AmazonSmile, and select “TREE Foundation” as your charity. Clicking on any of the links here to AmazonSmile will automatically link you to the TREE Foundation on AmazonSmile, and you’ll be able to see at the top of the webpage while you shop that you are “Supporting: TREE Foundation.” Or you can click on the banner above that says “Shop at AmazonSmile.”
Please help spread the word to others to help support the TREE Foundation through AmazonSmile. If you share the special URL http://smile.amazon.com/ch/65-0904869, they will automatically be linked to the TREE Foundation. Or, you can use the share icons below to send via e-mail share on your social network.
So the next time you go shopping on Amazon, go to AmazonSmile instead, and you’ll be supporting the TREE Foundation. We thank you for your support. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments about this program.
