(NaturalNews) To their credit, Amazon.com has rolled out their "smile" program which donates 0.5% of qualified purchases to the non-profit charity of your choice. All you have to do is click a link before you shop at Amazon.com, and the rest is automatic.
That's why today, I'm asking all Natural News fans, readers and supporters to click this Amazon.com link before you shop at Amazon.com, so that 0.5% of your purchases to the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center where I serve as the volunteer (non-paid) executive director.
We also made grants in 2009 and 2008, but we failed to do any substantial fundraising in 2012 and 2013.
But now, with the Amazon Smile program, we can raise funds for 2014!
Here's my promise to you: EVERY DOLLAR we receive from Amazon.com will be awarded in grant money. One hundred percent.
The Consumer Wellness Center pays no salaries and owns no property. It has traditionally donated nearly 100% of incoming funds back out to schools and children's programs, helping to teach the world about health, nutrition, home food production and sustainable living.
I've actually been feeling a strong pull toward ramping up the activities of the CWC this year, hoping to raise more enough funds to dedicate more of my time to CWC activities. So if you want to help support the Consumer Wellness Center, just click this Amazon.com link and 0.5% of all your qualified purchases will result in a donation to the CWC.
By the way, I also want to help support the Institute for Responsible Technology with this program, so you may instead choose to click on this link to help raise money for the Institute for Responsible Technology every time you shop at Amazon.com.
Note that you have to choose one or the other, you can't have two non-profits chosen at the same time. Because I so strongly support the mission of Jeffrey Smith, I am happy if you direct your donations to the IRT instead of the CWC. Both organizations are well deserving of your support.
And ultimately, we really do need to thank Amazon for running this program. Allowing people to choose which charity they want to give to is a really strong benefit of shopping there.
