Nonprofits Aided by Online Donations Through Amazon Smile
With Thanksgiving over, there's still plenty of giving and gifting to be done for the holidays. Programs like Amazon Smile allow you to donate a small percentage of your eligible purchase to a charity of your choice. Nonprofits say these donations from the community can make all the difference. “As a single mom in Charlottesville, securing a forever home was pretty much impossible until I found out about Habitat for Humanity,” said Sheron Sinclair. Sinclair is now volunteering at Habitat for Humanity. She says none of it would be possible without the community's help. “I know how it feels to have the funding to be able to help build your home, and then move in,” Sinclair said. “Every dollar really truly does count, and every dollar makes it that much closer for a family to be home.” “Every little bit we get is… they're lifesavers. I mean, it's literally life-saving gifts, so every dime counts,” said Angie Gunter, Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA. “It's the time of giving. This is the time of the year where people open up their hearts and their wallets typically and they want to give, and I can't think of better a way to give then to your favorite charity.” Representatives of these organizations say they receive a large percentage of donations during the end of year. They're hoping people also recognize Giving Tuesday, which is dedicated to giving back and donating to your favorite charity.
