Amazon Smile supports Akron students

Akron Promise has linked with the Amazon Smile program in order to take advantage of the ‘collective spending’ of our community to benefit the students of Akron.

When buying most products via Amazon Smile, Amazon will donate a portion of each sale to the charity of the your choice.

Amazon has created this FAQ that may answer more questions.

Please consider selecting Akron Promise as your preferred charity when you use AmazonSmile.  Use this link to select Akron Promise as the charity of your choice.

Once you have selected your charity, be sure to use the url smile.amazon.com rather than ‘www’ each time you make a purchase.  If you use the app on your phone to purchase products, the smile benefits are not available.  Some users solve this issue bynot using the app at all, or switch to their browser once their cart is ready to order and place their order using their browser.

I am happy to help you with any questions you may have.  Please post a comment or send me an e-mail

All proceeds from AmazonSmile will go to scholarships for Akron Students.
