Cash donations of any size are always welcome.

While Amazon has long had a charitable giving program that lets you click through from nonprofit websites to donate a portion of your spending to them, the charity option is now on the retail site itself — if you enter through smile.amazon.com.

 

On the first visit, you'll be asked to name your favorite charity. We made it simple for you and default to Menifee Community Cupboard. From then on, Amazon will donate 0.5 percent of whatever you spend to MVCC. It's not a lot but it adds up.

 

Still, it bears repeating that it will only add up if you hit the shopping site through the smile.amazon.com URL, so don't forget!
