You shop – Amazon gives to SMBAS

November 13, 2019

With big-time holiday shopping arriving soon, we though we’d re-run this posting from September 2018. [Chuck Almdale]


Were you aware that your online shopping with Amazon could benefit
Santa Monica Bay Audubon Society?

Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible “AmazonSmile” purchases to the charitable organization of your choice, at no additional cost to you.
Simply start your shopping at smile[dot]amazon[dot]com/, select Santa Monica Bay Audubon Society as your charity of choice, and that’s it!
AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service.

Some SMBAS members have already done this. One commented:

“…all I did was to go to Smile[dot]Amazon[dot]com, use my usual Amazon log in and password and choose Santa Monica Bay Audubon Society as the charity. Very very easy.”

Link to: “AmazonSmile’ Program Details:

Once there, in addition to additional details, you can click “Get Started”

Or you can go direct to Signin:
You’ll be asked for the email address you use for Amazon, and your Amazon password.
If you don’t already have an Amazon account, you can create one here.
You’ll then be asked for the charitable organization you want the 0.5% to go to.
Enter: Santa Monica Bay Audubon Society
Then click “Search.”
This should pop up: “Santa Monica Bay Audubon Society  Pacific Plsds CA
Click “Select” and you’re done.

The black banner across the top of your screen now says “Amazon Smile” in the upper left corner, and “Supporting: Santa Monica Bay Audubon Society” near the middle.

Other than that, your shopping experience and the prices you pay are unchanged.

From now on, when you shop at Amazon:

  1. You have to do it through (there is no link from regular
  2. Enter your email and password
  3. SMBAS gets 0.5% of your purchase price at no cost to you
  4. We suggest you bookmark to always sign in through smile
