Hey all you online shoppers: The DC Abortion Fund has officially removed the guilt from the guilty pleasure of Amazon shopping! Now with AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate 0.5 percent of your purchase price on millions of eligible items to DCAF.
It’s this easy: The next time you are in need of a shopping fix, head on over to http://smile.amazon.com/. You will be prompted to select a charity to benefit from your purchases. Simply type in DC Abortion Fund, hit select, and start shopping! You can still use your existing Amazon account, and you will find the exact same selection and prices as Amazon.com. The only difference is, your online purchases will now benefit DCAF, at no extra cost to you!
Take it from our treasurer, Emily C.: “Amazon Smile is a great way to give a little that can really add up for DCAF. There’s no reason that we can’t all benefit from our 1 a.m. purchases!”
But remember, DCAF only benefits if you make your purchases at http://smile.amazon.com, so re-bookmark this page in place of Amazon.com. Now go on, buy that cute coffee mug set you thought you didn’t need or that new spring wardrobe you’ve been putting off until the snow melts! As long as the product page is marked as “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation,” you can feel good knowing that your purchase is benefiting DCAF. Happy shopping!
