HANA is excited to announce that we are now a registered charitable organization with AmazonSmile! Shop at smile.amazon.com and 0.5% of your eligible purchases will be donated to the Hokkaido Association of North America.
What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. AmazonSmile is available at smile.amazon.com on your web browser and can be activated in the Amazon Shopping app for iOS and Android phones. When you shop with AmazonSmile, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added benefit that AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. You can choose from over one million organizations to support.
How do I shop with AmazonSmile?
To use AmazonSmile, simply go to smile.amazon.com on your web browser or activate AmazonSmile in the Amazon Shopping app on your iOS or Android phone within the Settings or Programs & Features menu. On your web browser, you can add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping with AmazonSmile.
How do I select HANA to support with AmazonSmile?
On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you will be prompted to select a charitable organization (Hokkaido Association of North America, Inc) to receive donations from your future eligible AmazonSmile purchases. Amazon will remember your selected charity whenever you shop at smile.amazon.com or with AmazonSmile activated in the Amazon Shopping app, and then every eligible purchase you make through AmazonSmile will result in a donation for your selected charity. AmazonSmile will occasionally contact you about donation amounts disbursed to your chosen charity or about the program.
You can also click here to choose HANA as your AmazonSmile charity and start shopping! This link will take you directly to AmazonSmile in support of HANA so you won’t have to search for us among almost a million other organizations.
How do I make sure to always shop with AmazonSmile?
When you follow a link from a search or ad, it will take you to the main Amazon store rather than smile.amazon.com. You have to remember to manually change the url every time or your purchases will not generate any donations for your selected charity. This is such a hassle! Fortunately, there are browser extensions available for all major browsers to automatically redirect you to AmazonSmile when you click any Amazon link. The redirection happens seamlessly and you wont even notice.
