Shopping on Amazon for Father's Day? Make sure your purchase benefits the Society

If you intend to shop for the dad in your life on Amazon, please make sure to enter through the Society's AmazonSmile page. Father's Day is Sunday, June 17!

When you sign up for AmazonSmile and choose the American Cancer Society as the beneficiary, one half of one percent of what you spend – every time you spend –  will be donated to ACS by Amazon. It may not sound like a lot – but the more people we have doing this, the more we can raise, and it costs shoppers nothing.

How it works
Go to smile.amazon.com and choose the American Cancer Society as your charity of choice, or go straight to the Society's page and bookmark it. You can use your existing Amazon account and you will find all the same products and prices as on Amazon.com. Please note that recurring subscribe-and-save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible for AmazonSmile.

Once you choose American Cancer Society, every time you come back to smile.amazon.com, you will see this wording at the top of the page: "Supporting American Cancer Society, Inc."  To learn more, read Amazon's Q&A about AmazonSmile

The key is remembering to go to smile.amazon.com or the Society's page, instead of amazon.com. It takes a little self-discipline!

Please share this information with your friends, family members, and colleagues. You'll find social media messages below, and here is a video you can share.
