This holiday season (and always) please support ACS when you shop on Amazon!

Attention Amazon shoppers − did you know that you can raise money for the American Cancer Society and it costs you absolutely nothing?

All you have to do is shop at and select American Cancer Society as your charity. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know − same products, prices, and service.

Once you have selected the Society, save the page as a favorite or simply type in instead of when you go shopping. It is so easy! Amazon will give 0.5% of what you spend – every time you shop –  to the Society. It may not sound like a lot – but it adds up quickly thanks to thousands who shop Amazon every day. For details, read Amazon's Q&A about AmazonSmile. 

Spread the word!
