A perfect way to support the world’s most vulnerable children during the holidays!

[AmazonSmile] Amazon is one of the most widely used websites in the world. We were pleased to hear that, effective October 2013, customers can now elect to donate 0.5% of their purchase to the charity of their choice. This is all made possible by shopping on smile.amazon.com.

If you already shop on Amazon, or if you’re looking for the perfect gift for a loved one, we invite you to shop at smile.amazon.com and choose World of Children Award as your charity of choice. Below you can read about how to use Amazon Smile.
