It’s that time of year again…time to shop ‘til you drop, find the perfect holiday presents, and cross out every person on your list.
Regardless of which holiday you are celebrating, unless you started shopping months ago, you still have a long way to go to find gifts everyone will love.
We have a great way to cut down on the hassles associated with dealing with crowds at stores, and you are probably doing it already—shop online! In fact, if you are already a fan of Amazon (or are willing to take a peek) the AmazonSmile program will allow you to get great deals and support Easterseals NJ at the same time!
In other words: every time you make a purchase, a donation will be made by Amazon to Easterseals NJ! Easterseals NJ is dedicated to expanding opportunities for people living with disabilities in the Garden State. Every donation helps us support our participants in their education, careers, and access to the services they need.
What is Amazon Smile?
AmazonSmile is a way for shoppers to get the items they need at Amazon’s great prices while automatically supporting their favorite charity—Easterseals NJ! You simply visit smile.amazon.com, browse as you normally would and when you make a purchase—bam!—you are supporting a great cause.

It’s quite easy! Visit smile.amazon.com on your mobile device or computer and select our charity – Easterseals New Jersey – from the list of options.
That’s it! There’s nothing else to do except make your purchases as you always do. After you connect your Amazon account with Easterseals NJ as an AmazonSmile beneficiary, the charity will receive 0.5% of every purchase you make!
