Shop AmazonSmiles

Oct 29, 2020 | Members News, News

Many of you are at home, and having items delivered. When you do, you can also help East Shore! AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support East Shore every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at, it’s the same items you find at, with the added bonus a portion of the purchase price will be donated to your favorite charitable organization.

How do I shop at AmazonSmile?

To shop at AmazonSmile, simply go to, and log in to Amazon with your account. On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Search for “East Shore Unitarian Church” (just make sure you pick Bellevue, WA and not Kirtland, OH!). Amazon remembers your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at will result in a donation to ESUC.

How much of my purchase does Amazon donate?

The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges. From time to time, Amazon offers special, limited-time promotions that increase the donation amount on one or more products or services or provide for additional donations to charitable organizations (check on Facebook for special banners!).
