AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.
Sometimes it’s hard to remember to type in the link for AmazonSmile each time you shop. Now it’s easy to install AmazonSmile in your web browser so you don’t have to remember to use it every time you shop at Amazon. The extension will simply redirect you to AmazonSmile so every purchase you make allows Amazon to make a donation.

If you shop from your iPhone or iPad, you will need to do the following once on each device:
Open Safari and type smile.amazon.com in the web address field at the top. AmazonSmile will open.
Touch the share button (looks like a box with an arrow) to the left of the website address.
Touch Add to Home Screen. Touch Add.
Remove the old Amazon app from your iPhone and iPad so that you will always shop at Amazon through AmazonSmile.
Hold your finger on the original Amazon app until it wiggles.
Touch the black ‘X’ to delete the app from your iPhone/iPad.
You will see an alert that your Amazon data will be deleted. This will not delete your Amazon account or any of your wish lists or order history. It’s simply the data the app saved on your device.
If you would rather use the link instead, every time you shop, AmazonSmile donates 0.5% to Catalyst Academy.
