During the Covid pandemic, I’ve started doing more of my shopping online, much of it on Amazon. I recently noticed that in all of 2019 I placed a total of 29 orders on Amazon, but in the past 6 months I’ve made 44 purchases! Each order has added airline points to my account. One day I’ll be able to travel again and the points will come in handy!
But did you know that these purchases have also benefited Dignity:Liberia? That’s right! Amazon smile donates 0.5% of the price of each eligible purchase to the charity of my choice, which happens to be Dignity:Liberia!
Would you like to get in on the action? Here’s how: on your first visit to smile.amazon.com, select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. We are listed as Dignity Liberia (without the colon). It is that simple!!! You can even get the Amazon Smile App if you use your phone to shop.
But wait! There’s more! We recently updated our Amazon Wish List, Containers of Hope Supply Needs. It includes numerous items that will help healthcare providers address the treatment and recovery needs of women and girls with fistula. We also are accepting items for our maternity waiting home, education and general assistance. The item you purchase to help in Liberia, will also generate a cash gift for Dignity:Liberia! Our next container will be shipped this month, but we accept items year-round.
What a deal! I like getting as much “bang for my buck” as possible. By buying an item from our wish list, I support my favorite organization with supplies and a cash gift and I get airline points! I hope you can help as well.
Go to Dignity:Liberia’s Amazon Wish List to donate to our Containers of Hope. For more information about our medical supply needs, please contact us.
Thank you so much!
