Hope, Smiles and Amazon

Hope From Harper has some exciting news for all those supporters who, like many online shoppers, have varying degrees of a relatively new malady - Amazon Addiction. If you haven't heard of this new condition, simply sign up for the free month of Amazon Prime - which provides you free 2-day shipping, free streaming movies and music, etc. - you'll soon understand.  In all seriousness, shopping addiction IS a problem for some people (just look at THIS book, coincidentally offered by Amazon), but this post is not really about addiction to shopping...

Amazon does good business, and if you do any shopping online, it's likely you've ordered from Amazon at one time or another, and you likely will again.  For those who shop with Amazon, there's a new way for you to get your Amazon fix and help kids and families affected by childhood cancer all at the same time. For those unfamiliar, please meet Amazon Smile.

Amazon Smile is a program where Amazon gives your selected charity 0.5% of your eligible purchases when you purchase through smile.amazon.com - and the donation does not increase the overall cost of your purchase.  You can shop to your heart's content, and funds get donated to your selected charity every time you shop.

Recently, Hope From Harper became an eligible Amazon Smile charity.  It's easy to get started.

  1. Navigate your browser to smile.amazon.com
  2. Log in using your amazon.com credentials (Amazon Smile uses your standard Amazon account) - if you're like me, you will already be logged into Amazon, so you may get to skip this step
  3. Search for and select "Hope From Harper Inc" as your selected charity
  4. SHOP - remember to always use smile.amazon.com - if you simply go to amazon.com, your purchase will not benefit your selected charity

See, easy!

Feed your shopping addiction and help kids with cancer - all without leaving your computer screen. 

Choose Joy - and Choose Hope From Harper on Amazon Smile!
