Amazon has established a nonprofit organization called Amazon Smile
through which Amazon donates to various charities. You select the charity! 

Just Google “” and choose your favorite charity. 
After that, anytime you shop on Amazon Smile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase price to your selected charity. It’s a win-win situation: Amazon gets a tax break and we get a donation from them.  
The products and prices are exactly the same as the normal Amazon website. 

Here’s how it works:
(with St. Francis selected as your charity)
1. Access Amazon through this URL,,
2. Ensure "St Francis of Assisi Roman Catholi" is identified as your charity
(it should automatically be selected from using the link above)
3. Shop, Shop, Shop!
4. AmazonSmile will track all purchases received with St. Francis selected as the charity. 
Every three months, AmazonSmile will send St. Francis a check for .5% of all purchases.
Try it – bookmark it! Use it every time you order anything on Amazon.

AmazonSmile is now available in the Amazon Shopping app on iOS and Android mobile phones.
