Do you shop Amazon?






Connect your account to Amazon Smile, it is Amazon, but when you do this a percentage of each purchase or many purchases goes to the charity of your choice, in my case I was able to find and dedicate my proceedings to my local Planned Parenthood.

1. Yes, I do. My account is linked to Hope for Paws.

You can see a lot of their rescues here: https://www.youtube.com/user/eldad75

My first rescue dog came from an animal shelter in Los Angeles in the early '80's. We're now on our third rescue dog and we live across the country in NC.

4. Already there.

[font color="navy" face="Verdana"]I'm very happy to say that every purchase supports Planned Parenthood.

Here's another painless way to help: Sign up for Goodsearch and Goodshop. Every search with Goodsearch raises a little bit (and it adds up fast!), as well as purchases through the Goodshop site.

I even buy groceries now due to incredibly good prices and charitable contributions. I buy eggs, milk, and bread at publix. I order meats from Omaha steaks in bulk. Everything else is Amazon. They have a wonderful grocery section on the website.

20. yes I do, I go through KCSM's site so 8% of the purchase goes to the station, the only24/7Jazz

station broadcasting in our country. It's hard enough for jazz musicians to make a living, it's even harder for jazz radio stations.

I didn't know about Amazon Smile, but now that I do I'll tell my friends and family about it. I like that people have a choice in where their donations go.

thanks for the info.

23. It's a very small amount of money, but

if you do a lot of Amazon shopping, every bit counts!

Usually if you go to amazon.com by reflex, there will be a link. Otherwise, I think you can just go to smile.amazon.com

25. A quick search will reveal Amazon's . .

 

far from stellar labor practices.

And their business model is a tax dodge . .

And Bezos owns the Neo-liberal WaPO . .

Other than that, there is not much moral ambiguity at all in shopping with Amazon. (sarcasm alert)

28. I don't shop Amazon for much of the reasons you list, BUT.....

I've been pleasantly surprised that Bezos has taken a hands-off editorial approach with the WaPo. I was worried when he bought it, but so far, so good.

I don't shop them because of the tax thing, their penchant for putting local stores out of business, the huge amount of waste generated by Amazon prime boxes, and the way they use contract workers as 'pickers' and mistreat them. Among other things.

I volunteer there and they are close to desperate for funds. A lot of homeless and poor people spend their days there for heat in winter and coolness in summer. It's a huge contribution to the community.

33. I do, and I also shop Amazon Smile for my charity. I love this, and it isn't inconvenient at all.

Seamless, as long as you remember to log into Smile instead of regular Amazon. I think I have noticed now lately they will remind you, but not sure how consistent it is.

Only tell me if it is safe to do so, if it identifies you in anyway or your location, better not.

40. Right now I'm on National MS Society, in honor of a friend who is living with this disease.

I don't know how she does it. Her husband died a few years ago. She lives alone, and she has had several very serious medical episodes. She handles it all head-on, and continues to care for her horses on her mini-farm. In fact, she just had a back surgery a few days ago, but I think that was kind of unrelated to the ms.
