The holidays are upon us, which means most of us are making lists of who to give what, stopping by the mall on the way home from work, and wrapping package after package to place under the tree.
This holiday season, you can do more than give a gift to a loved one. By participating in the AmazonSmile program, the gifts you purchase online can also make a difference in the lives of women who’ve suffered from breast cancer.
What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is an easy way for online shoppers to donate to the charity of their choice every time they purchase eligible products on Amazon. For every eligible product you buy, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price to the charity you choose. The AiRS Foundation participates in AmazonSmile, which means when you choose to support AiRS on AmazonSmile, you’re helping us help women who’ve suffered from breast cancer.
How to participate?
To support the AiRS Foundation with your purchases, simply go to smile.amazon.com where you will be instructed to search for the charity of your choice. Search for Alliance in Reconstructive Surgery Foundation (not “AiRS Foundation”) and select it from the search results. Then, follow the instructions on the next screen to begin shopping for your holiday gifts! Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of every eligible product you purchase directly to the AiRS Foundation.
By participating in AmazonSmile, every gift you place under your tree will also make a difference in the life of a woman who’s had breast cancer.
Why does it matter?
The AiRS Foundation relies on grants and donations, big and small, to fund our work providing breast reconstruction to women who’ve had mastectomies due to breast cancer. Participating in the AmazonSmile program is a cost-free way to make a donation through the gifts you’re already planning to buy. We use the money donated to us to fund surgical breast reconstruction for women who cannot afford it, as well as to educate medical professionals about the importance of breast reconstruction for many women who’ve had mastectomies due to cancer.
