What is AmazonSmile?

In short, it’s a free and simple way to earn money for Beth El just by shopping on Amazon.   Everything you normally do on Amazon, including wish lists, registries and Prime, works the same on AmazonSmile. The only difference is that you enter Amazon through their AmazonSmile link.

 

The Only Difference?

After you register, simply type in smile.amazon.com in your web browser or type in AmazonSmile in your search engine to go to shop at at AmazonSmile.  AmazonSmile looks and works the same as what you’re used to using on Amazon. Shop as you usually do; AmazonSmile takes care of automatically donating money to Beth El based on the money you spend online!  No one sees your purchases, except you.

 

Selecting Beth El as your charitable organization on AmazonSmile

You only need to choose a charitable organization once (but you can change it at any time or as often as you’d like).  There are over 40 Beth El Congregations listed, so be careful when you select. We are listed as “Beth El Congregation of South Hills“. “Pittsburgh PA” will appear by the Select button.

 

Having an Impact

At any time, you can see how much you’ve generated, and how much Beth El has received through the AmazonSmile program.  As you can see by the image below, we’re just getting started at Beth El (Apparently, I need to shop a bit more as well!)  Help raise Beth El’s number by using AmazonSmile whenever you use shop on Amazon!
