Amazon Smile: Shop and donate at the same time!

I received an email from “Amazon Smile” in mid-December. It showed how many euros were paid in the third quarter of 2019 to the organization that I had chosen to support with a purchase via the Smile offer. If you do not yet know what “Amazon Smile” is all about and which organizations you can support with it (without spending a cent more than on regular shopping) have a look in the post linked here ;)

Small amounts come together through the 0,5% when shopping via Amazon Smile. Due to the large number of customers, however, it has already become over 6,1 million euros!

Shop and donate with Amazon Smile

Amazon Smile offers the opportunity to collect a small amount of donation for charitable associations, aid organizations and similar projects with every purchase. Similar to affiliate link commissions, a percentage is charged on purchases made. The euro amount that comes together will then be donated to the organization or association you have chosen. You can find all information in an Amazon Smile FAQ with this link. 

You can support several thousand organizations with your purchase (each with a 0,5% donation on the value of the shopping cart), which you can find using the search field. The following five are also currently suggested on the selection page:

  • Save the Children Germany 
  • Nature Conservation Union Austria 
  • German Doctors eV 
  • Youth against AIDS eV 
  • Children's Future Foundation 

Current payouts are over 6,1 million euros

At the beginning I already mentioned an email in which current and total donations were listed. In the mail from mid-December, a total of € 3 for the UN Refugee Aid eV is shown for the 2019rd quarter of 39.969,93. A total of € 530.456,47 was donated to this association up to the day the e-mail was sent. The sum of the donation payments to all participating organizations in Germany and Austria is currently estimated at € 6.167.763,94. Not a bad thing when you consider that money is collected from online shopping at a mail order company and donated to aid projects. Do you want the amount to be much larger in the future? Then take a look at Amazon Smile;)

Did you also receive an email with an Amazon smile statistic? What amount was donated to the organization you selected? Feel free to leave a comment!
