SHOP AMAZON AND SUPPORT THE ARC

November 27th, 2018

The holiday shopping season is officially here, and this year, you can give back to The Arc of Essex County while you shop. Did you know that when you shop using AmazonSmile, the company will donate a half-percent of each purchase to a charity you choose? Remember to start your holiday shopping by navigating to The Arc’s custom link before making a purchase.

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support The Arc of Essex County every time you shop – and it comes at zero cost to you. It's a donation made by Amazon in your honor. You just have to select us at smile.Amazon.com and use smile.Amazon.com instead of Amazon.com whenever you shop.

At smile.Amazon.com, you will find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to the work we do.  

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Visit smile.Amazon.com. It’s just like shopping on the regular site.
  2. Sign in. You can use your existing Amazon credentials. If you don’t have an account, you can create a new one.
  3. Start shopping. After you’ve chosen us as your charity -- (The Arc of Essex County) -- your shopping experience will be the same as it is on the Amazon website. Remember, purchases on the main Amazon.com site do not support us so please bookmark smile.Amazon.com for the future.
  4. Spread the word. Once you’ve checked out, Amazon makes it easy to spread the news to your friends through Facebook and Twitter. Please be sure to let everyone know you've supported The Arc of Essex County.
