Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHCA) is partnering with AmazonSmile, a simple and automatic way for you to support us every time you shop, at no cost to you!
AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know with the added bonus that Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to RMHCA.
To shop at AmazonSmile, simply go to smile.amazon.com. If you already have an existing Amazon account, sign in using the same credentials. Your Prime Benefits, shopping cart, wish list, registries and other account settings are also the same. If you do not have an existing Amazon account, you can create a new account through AmazonSmile.
IMPORTANT: On your first visit to AmazonSmile, the system will ask you to select a charity! Search for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama and hit the “select” to earmark donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. AmazonSmile will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make will result in a donation. (See graphic below for how it will look.)
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. From time to time, AmazonSmile may offer special, limited time promotions that increase the donation amount on one or more products or services or provide for additional donations to charitable organizations. Special terms and restrictions may apply. Please see the relevant promotion for complete details. Learn more by reading the complete AmazonSmile program details.
