Pro: Amazon Smile and Donations

This is for anybody who buys items through If you aren’t familiar with Amazon Smile, please become acquainted with it!

All you do is log in using a slightly modified website address: You just log in using your normal username and password. This works whether or not your account is a Prime account!

I have not found a way to do this through their mobile app. As far as I can tell, you have to use a browser and log in through A work-around that somebody else figured out is to use the mobile app to add items to your cart, and then switch to the site in your browser, your items show up in the cart, and buy them through there.

You can even change which charity you are supporting, so you could theoretically support a different charity every month, for example!

I was actually able to confirm with Blue Sky Horse Rescue that they are indeed receiving the donation $$$ from my use of Amazon Smile! It is legit.

If any of you do not have a personal favorite charity you wish to support, please, PLEASE consider Blue Sky Horse Rescue in Klamath Falls, Oregon. They literally saved the life of one of my favorite horses, the sweetest, sweetest mare who has a neurological condition and is still with the rescue today. After a horrible time about a year ago, the rescue is now under new management and they are doing a lot of good, hard work to save the lives of horses, get a foster program going and an adoption program for the adoptable horse. Their most recent new arrivals are two underweight horses, one of whom is missing an eye.
