On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you will be prompted to select a charitable organization to receive donations from your future eligible AmazonSmile purchases. Scroll until you find Temple Beth Shalom Palm Coast.  Amazon will remember your selected charity whenever you shop at smile.amazon.com or with AmazonSmile activated in the Amazon Shopping app, and then every eligible purchase you make through AmazonSmile will result in a donation to TBS.  AmazonSmile will occasionally email you to let you know about donation amounts it has disbursed to your chosen charity or about the program.

How Much of My Purchase Does Amazon Donate?

The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates, and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges. This is at NO COST TO YOU.

Remember that to trigger a donation to TBS after you've signed up, you must shop at smile.amazon.com, not just at amazon.com.

And that's it!  Pretty simple, and a great way to help TBS.  Thanks for donating!
