The holidays are the most magical time of the year.
But as I enjoy spending time with my family decorating our Christmas tree, wrapping gifts, and baking cookies, it breaks my heart to know that there are many children who are not going to get to enjoy these experiences with their families.
That is why I have decided to join Amazon to help Deliver Smiles this holiday season. Amazon makes it easy to give back and support those in need during the holidays by offering three simple donating options: AmazonSmile, AmazonSmile Charity Lists and donating via Alexa.

Giving Back with AmazonSmile
This year, I chose to do my holiday shopping through AmazonSmile. By simply shopping for holiday gifts by starting at smile.amazon.com, a percentage of the purchase price of eligible products in my order gets donated to the charity of my choice.
AmazonSmile offers the same shopping experience–the only difference is that a portion of what you spend gets donated to a charity you choose–making shopping through AmazonSmile an easy and effortless way to give back.
This year we selected to have our donation support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude’s is a non-profit hospital that specializes in treating children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The best part–there is absolutely no cost to the patients for treatment at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Other Ways to Give Back
Shopping off of AmazonSmile Charity Lists is another great way to give back during the holidays. Charities share their a list of items they need–making it easy to order the items on Amazon and have the items delivered directly to the charity at their designated address.
If you prefer to make a direct donation to the charity of your choice, Amazon can help you with that as well. Simply say, “Alexa, I want to make a donation” to any Alexa enabled device to donate.
