I’ll admit I dislike shopping so I always head to Amazon first to see if they have what I need. I have a prime membership which used to just mean free shipping but now it’s got a number of other benefits including free books, free music, and free videos – TV and movies. I always start at Amazon Smile now that I learned that it generates donations for a charity I choose.
$33 dollars isn’t much but wow, thanks to me and other Amazon shoppers the Red Cross has received over a million dollars. It’s a good reminder that every little bit adds up and it’s an easy way to help … just like donating to the food bank when I go to the grocery store – what better time to think about those hungry and in need than when I’m stocking up on groceries for the two of us. It’s a reminder of how truly fortunate we are. (And for those of you who know that I rarely go to the grocery store, I’ve got Keith trained to give too)!
