DONATE WITH EVERY AMAZON PURCHASE
Did you know that you could donate to Roanoke Ranch with EVERY qualified purchase made on Amazon? All you need to do is sign up for AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support Roanoke Ranch for Kids every time you shop, at no cost to you. And, its available throughout the year, not just during the holidays.
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.
Every item available for purchase on Amazon.com is also available on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) at the same price. You will see eligible products marked "Eligible for AmazonSmile donation" on their product detail pages.
Follow the instructions below to sign up for AmazonSmile:
Google “Amazon Smile” or click on this link: smile.amazon.com
2. Click on “AmazonSmile – Amazon.com”
3. If you already have an Amazon account, enter your email (or phone # for mobile accounts), then your pass- word. Now go to step 13 below. Otherwise, click on the “Create your Amazon account” button below sign in.
4. If you sign up for a new account, you will be sent a One Time Password (OTP) to your email for verification of your identity.
5. Enter the OTP. Then Click on the "Create your Amazon account" button.
6. On the next screen, click on the “Get Started” button.
7. Start by picking your charity. Type in “Roanoke Ranch for Kids”. Then click on "Search".

9. Click on the box next to the “Yes, I understand….”, then click on the “Start Shopping” button.
10. You will see a pop-up screen saying “Thank you” and asking you to install Amazon Assistant to make it easy to come back to the page. You DO NOT need to install this. That screen will disappear in about 15 seconds.
11. However, all you need to do is click on the star on the right side of your search bar as shown below. This will turn the star blue, indicating a new bookmark was created.
12. The bookmark will either be placed just under the search bar (left arrow) or click on the “Other Bookmarks” to the right on the screen (right arrow), to see it. Next time you shop, just click on the bookmark to bring you to your AmazonSmile page. That's it. Thank you for supporting Roanoke Ranch for Kids.

14. Click on the “Select” button to the right (next to Lowell, MI) to choose Roanoke Ranch for Kids.
15. The screen will then confirm your choice of Roanoke Ranch for Kids. It will also ask you to bookmark the page for easy access the next time you shop Amazon. You can follow the instructions above (starting with step 10) on how to create a bookmark.
