AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets the Baylor family enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to us.
You must enter the Amazon site through smile.amazon.com for the BLF to receive your donation.
Tens of millions of products are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on our smile.amazon.com product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible to generate donations. Only purchases made at smile.amazon.com, (not www.amazon.com or the mobile app,) generate AmazonSmile donations.
On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you will be prompted to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation.
How Does it Work?
1. Visit smile.amazon.com.
The entire shopping experience is the same and most products available on amazon.com are available at Amazon Smile.
2. Sign in and Choose The Baylor Line Foundation
The screen will look slightly different depending on whether your not you’re already signed into Amazon. If you’re already signed in, you’ll see a screen like the one below. Simply search for “Baylor Line Foundation” and proceed to step 3.
If you’re not signed, enter your email and password. Then proceed to step 3.
3. Select “The Baylor Line Foundation.”
When you search for a charity, such as “Baylor Line Foundation,” you will be given a list of possible matches. Select the charity of your choice to continue (but we’re hoping it will be us!).
Once selected, you will receive an email confirmation and you can begin shopping
4. Begin shopping!
Once you’ve selected your charity everything else functions the same. Shop for your favorite products or the perfect gift. Most products are eligible on Amazon Smile–if not, you’ll be notified. You can checkout normally as well. No extra cost is passed onto you–Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to the Baylor Line Foundation!
5. Share with your friends
After you’ve successfully completed a purchase on Amazon Smile you can share the news with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or via email. This option appears on the confirmation page after your order is complete.
