What's the difference from Amazon.com????
The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. Every item available for purchase on www.amazon.com is also available on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) at the same price. Prime works here too as does all Amazon services.
Instructions for getting linked up for shopping
Do you or your family Shop Amazon? Sign up for Amazon Smile and have donations made to Father Chuck’s Challenge amounting to .5% of your product purchase price. Some products are not eligible but most are. For those eligible, you will see “Eligible for Donation” on the product page. You must use a different web address to take advantage of this opportunity. Using the normal Amazon.com address will not allocate the credits, so you must use Smile.Amazon.com for your shopping to benefit the charity. Bookmark the Smile URL address for your browser and place it in the toolbar to be visible to you. If you have one there already set up for Amazon.com, replace it with one that goes to the Smile version.
Now, here's how to establish Smile.Amazon.com for your shopping place.
Go to Smile.Amazon.com using your browser.
Logon on – Create one if you don’t already have an Amazon account
You will be prompted to select a charitable organization from Amazon's list of eligible organizations. Search for “Father Chuck’s Challenge” and when found select it.
Finally, bookmark the Smile.Amazon.com address. A good place to put it is in your browser's toolbar. Also remember to delete any bookmarks for Amazon.com to avoid missing the opportunity to gain donation credit for your purchases.
That’s all it takes. It will display the charity name at the top of your browser.

FCC's Goal is to get 5000 shoppers linked up to benefit our mission of helping the poor. All we ask is that you donate 10 minutes or less of your time to make smile.amazon.com your shopping place of choice. We ask that you also reach out to encourage family and friends to join up as well. If each person who joins this effort convinces 3 or 4 more from family and friends to also join, we will surely be blessed with an army of support for the poorest of the poor in Haiti and Nicaragua. Thank You in Advance!
