Shopping online certainly has its perks–especially with the holiday season right around the corner! Some of the best Halloween costume deals can be found online, and it’s never too early to start preparing for the winter holiday time of giving.
If you are one of the many individuals who shop at Amazon.com, the well-known e-retailer of household items and goods, then why not shop for a cause? This year, shop and support the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation with AmazonSmile.
Owned by Amazon, the website provides identical services and identical prices to Amazon.com, but with the added opportunity to make the world a better place at no extra cost to your wallet.
How it Works
When items are purchased through AmazonSmile, a percentage of the purchase price of eligible products are donated to a charitable organization of your choice. Every time you make a purchase, you help those in need.
