Did you know when you purchase from Amazon you can have them donate to Charlestown’s Benevolent Care Fund? This at no extra cost to you. Here’s how:

  1. Go to smile.amazon.com.
  2. Enter your Amazon ID and password or create a smile.amazon account.
  3. When the website appears look for the Charity List and search for Charlestown Community Inc.
  4. Hit Select.
  5. Place your order. It’s the same Amazon you know, but a separate website. Same products, same prices, same service.
  6. Remember to generate donations you must always shop at smile.amazon.com.
  7. Amazon.smile donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible smile.amazon.com purchases to the charity of your choice–Charlestown Benevolent Care Fund and this will not effect any free shipping for Amazon Prime customers.
  8. You can buy online with a computer or cellphone in order to contribute. When buying on your cellphone you may use your Amazon Shopping app and tap “Settings” in the main menu (☰), then tap “AmazonSmile” and follow the on-screen instructions to turn on AmazonSmile on your phone.
  9. We can expand the donations to BCF by suggesting to our children and grandchildren that they use smile.amazon.com when buying at Amazon.
