Please consider designating Readability Matters for Amazon’s donations

AmazonSmile ( offers the same items, prices, and benefits as, with one important difference. When you shop on AmazonSmile, Amazon’s Foundation contributes 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charity of your choice. It’s a small amount — just 0.5% donated for every dollar you spend. So if you spend $100, $0.50 goes to your preferred charity. But it can add up throughout the year and remember — this is Amazon donating. You don’t have to donate a thing.AmazonSmile

There is no cost to Amazon customers or the charities; 100% of the donation generated from eligible purchases goes to the shopper’s charity of choice. For frequent Amazon users, this process is a great way to generate donations from Amazon to the designated charity.

Thank you for naming Readability Matters as the charity Amazon should donate to. Every dollar helps us build better reading!
