Do you buy stuff on Amazon?

If you buy stuff on Amazon, they have a great program where they’ll donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to the charity of your choice, if they participate in the Amazon Smile program. And guess what? Our parent organization, Sustainable West Seattle, is listed!

Use Amazon Smile and they'll donate 0.5% to Sustainable West Seattle!

Use Amazon Smile and they’ll donate 0.5% to Sustainable West Seattle!

So how does it work?

  1. Visit http://smile.amazon.com.
  2. Under your account menu, there is a link that lets you change your charity.
  3. Search for Sustainable West Seattle.
  4. Click the Select button to activate it as your charity.

That’s it! There’s no cost to you or to Sustainable West Seattle to participate.

If you don’t like the idea of Amazon donating to SWS and reaping the tax-deduction benefit, then you can donate directly using the PayPal button we setup on the right-hand side of our website (or use the button below).

So how does this relate to biking and DIY Bikes?  Sustainable West Seattle is our fiscal sponsor, so any funds we can get to them come back to us so we can help promote our mission!  Things like tools, business cards, stickers, or other informational material isn’t free.

Thanks for helping us out!
