However, for some, the holidays are a reminder of what’s missing and leaves some people longing even more, for their loved ones and the things they need in order to survive. That’s why it’s so important to think about the people in need during this time.
With all of the excess spending, we can easily get carried away into the bliss of things and forget about the people who are still missing the bare necessities. Since I was a small child, I can remember giving all of my unwanted toys and clothes away before receiving anything new off of my Christmas list.
That has carried me through adulthood and parenthood. Before receiving, we always give. Now that technology has taken over how we buy, it’s easier than ever to give back with the help of Amazon! Amazon makes it easier than ever for their customers to give back this holiday season with AmazonSmile, AmazonSmile Charity Lists and donating with Alexa.
Personally, AmazonSmile Charity Lists was the way we chose to give back. AmazonSmile Charity Lists makes it easy to browse by cause and purchase items from their Charity List to be delivered directly to the charity at their designated address. The entire process was super easy!
Being that early childhood education is near and dear to my heart, we chose to give to Kids Boost Inc. and donated some much-needed classroom supplies. It feels so good to know that we participated in such a significant part of a child’s early education!
AmazonSmile allows you to support your favorite charitable organization by automatically donating a portion of the purchase price of your on eligible Amazon orders to a charity of your choice. Amazon is also making it easy to donate to a registered charity with Alexa – just say “Alexa, I want to make a donation’ to any Alexa-enabled device.
Whether donating to your favorite charity directly, or shopping on AmazonSmile so a a portion of eligible holiday purchases goes to your charity of choice; there’s a way for everyone to give back this holiday season!
