Here’s how it works. Click here, and sign into your Amazon account to access AmazonSmile’s Roanoke College site. Now, start shopping.
Once you buy an eligible item via AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate .5 percent of the total purchase price to Roanoke, excluding taxes, shipping and handling, service charges or gift wrapping fees. The items eligible for the AmazonSmile program are marked on each product description.
There is no cap on the amount of money that can be donated.
Also, from now through March 31, Amazon will give an extra $5 to a charitable organization of your choice, in addition to its .5 percent donation.
The AmazonSmile Foundation administers the AmazonSmile program, which launched in October.
