What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is an easy way for you to reshape the landscape of education around the world while you shop for your favorite products on Amazon. After you choose PoP as your desired organization, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of every eligible purchase to our cause at no cost to you. Signing up with Amazon Smile is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
