AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets you enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com, including Amazon Prime member benefits. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price back to Project WeHOPE, assuming if you have designated Project WeHOPE as your charity of choice. So if you or someone you know regularly shop on Amazon, this is an easy way to get the products you love and support Project WeHOPE at the same time!
How do you know if you’ve chosen Project WeHOPE?
When you are logged into AmazonSmile, you need to see in the upper left corner the AmazonSmile logo and the words “Supporting: We HOPE.” If you see the AmazonSmile logo but no “Supporting…” words, then that means you have not selected a charity yet. If you don’t see the AmazonSmile logo, then log out of Amazon, and go to http://smile.amazon.com to begin supporting We HOPE.
Why when I type in Project WeHOPE’ I could not find your organization?
Project WeHOPE is our public brand that has evolved over the last 7 years, but We HOPE is our registered name with the IRS. Many foundations or companies, such as AmazonSmile will file our name as ‘We HOPE’ because they are able to verify our organization through IRS records. That’s how you know we are legitimate. So if you can’t find us as Project WeHOPE, just type in We HOPE.
