Donate

Did you know that there is a way to donate money to Circle of Health International without ever opening your wallet? Without ever clicking “donate now”? Without ever writing a check or stamping an envelope? Actually, there are a few ways – and I'm about to tell you about them!

I understand that adopting new habits is a lot to ask. These actions will require a few minutes of set up time and a few minutes of conscious effort over the near term to integrate them into your daily habits. But believe me, these things are elementary. When you start to see the tallied amount rising without ever actually donating, you'll really love that you did this. These programs are akin to earning points on your credit card.

Now, before I get started I want to say that Circle of Health REALLY wants you to implement one or more of these tools. This is because if you all do it, it will make a huge impact. As one person, it's not going to make a huge impact at COHI honestly, but if everyone who reads this implements it, it's going to blow our minds. I will plan on sending out periodic reports with totals earned over 3 months, 6 months, and a year, and together we'll see what these tools can do!

What is AmazonSmile?

"AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you'll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You can choose from nearly one million organizations to support."

The first habit you'll need to change: Instead of going to www.amazon.com to shop, you'll instead need to go to www.smile.amazon.com.

Nothing is different by shopping at this new link. It's the exact same Amazon. The only difference is that a donation is made to your charity of choice based on a percentage of the amount you spend. Your Prime account is still linked. *Nothing* is different.

I'm a toolbar nerd so I have a button on my toolbar that links me directly to Amazon Smile. I highly recommend this!

To enable Circle of Health as your charity of choice you need to look at the very top corner of the right side of your screen. There is a clickable link that says "Supporting." Click that!

Then you'll scroll through a list of nonprofits and we'll be there – "Circle of Health International."

I'm putting an image here for you of what your screen will look like once you've added your charity of choice.

That's it. Done and done. You don't need to do a single other thing. Amazon takes care of everything else. If you want learn more go here for more details.
