      AmazonSmile   05/02/2018

      AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.  Every item available for purchase on Amazon is also available on Amazon Smile (smile.amazon.com) at the same price.  It will ask you what charity you want to support; you can search for the International Guild of Miniature Artisans, and then select it.
