AmazonSmile & Vanishing Inc Charity

Postby CraigMitchell » December 30th, 2017, 11:38 am

In case you aren't aware - Amazon have a great program called AmazonSmile whereby they donate 0.5% of your Amazon purchases to a charity of your choosing at no cost to you.

Visit https://smile.amazon.com/ - nominate your charity - and for future Amazon purchases always visit https://smile.amazon.com/ to ensure your donation gets made. There's no cost to you as an Amazon customer!

From a magic perspective - you can elect to support the "Vanishing Inc Magic Fund" as your nominated charity ( simply search for it from the list ) Josh and Andi are doing some amazing work ... so you can support their efforts by doing what you always do - shopping at Amazon ;-) Details on their charity can found here: https://www.sharemagic.org/

There may be a "cost" depending upon your particular circumstances. I happen to use an Amazon Visa that offers reward points that can be used to pay for things and when you buy from Amazon you get even more points. However, when you use AmazonSmile, you no longer get reward points. Since I've used points to pay for everything in some of my Amazon orders, there is in some fashion a cost if you are in a similar circumstance. I don't know if this affects other reward credit cards, but it does with the Amazon Visa.

This is marvelous! My husband and I run a charity that benefits from AmazonSmile, and the donation from even small, everyday purchases really adds up and makes a real difference. Such a simple thing can have a huge impact.
Magic is for everyone.
