The Champaign County Humane Society is pleased to be included in Amazon.com’s philanthropy program, AmazonSmile, which allows Amazon shoppers to select their favorite charity to receive 0.5% of their purchase totals.
There is no additional cost to the shopper, as the donation is made by Amazon. This opportunity is available to virtually everything in the Amazon online store and there is no cap on the amount Amazon will donate.
To shop through AmazonSmile and support CCHS, just follow these steps:
1. Visit the Amazon store via: smile.amazon.com
, rather than amazon.com.
2. Log in with your regular Amazon password and you’ll be prompted to select a charity.
3. Search for “Champaign County Humane Society” and select us! Make sure you select the Champaign County Humane Society in Urbana, Illinois (not Ohio).
4. Your selection will be saved, so you only need to do this the first time you log in to AmazonSmile.
From then on, just use smile.amazon.com
for all your Amazon shopping. For every Amazon purchase you make through the AmazonSmile portal, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible items to CCHS!
Your Amazon account remains and looks exactly the same
, except that you’ll see “Supporting Champaign County Humane Society” after your name at the very top of each page. Your profile, recommendations, orders and wish-list items will be there, just as they’ve always appeared.
A note on privacy: Your privacy is absolutely assured. We’ll never even know your name because Amazon will not share your identity or any information about your purchases with us. We will simply receive a quarterly check from Amazon, which combines the donations made on behalf of all our supporters.
