Help Support NCMEC with AmazonSmile

03-24-2021

Did you know that you can help missing kids every time you order from Amazon?! 

When you shop on AmazonSmile, the Amazon foundation donates 0.5 percent of your purchase to NCMEC! 

It’s easy to do! Here’s how it works. 

AmazonSmile is Amazon’s charity site. Instead of visiting amazon.com, go to smile.amazon.com and you select the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) as your favorite charity.  

Just like with Amazon, once you’ve switched over to smile.amazon.com, you can shop and browse the website exactly as you have before. It has the same look, interface, products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com.  

Every item available for purchase on www.amazon.com is also available on AmazonSmile at the same price.  

We would love your support by choosing NCMEC as your AmazonSmile charity! 

Just imagine if everyone who shopped on Amazon used AmazonSmile—0.5 percent of all those purchases add up. In fact, to date, AmazonSmile users have helped raise over $241 million for their favorite nonprofits! 

Easy Steps to Switch from Amazon to AmazonSmile

On your first visit to smile.amazon.com, you need to select the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children as your charitable organization of choice. Once you’ve selected NCMEC, AmazonSmile will remember your selection and then every purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation. 

Add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile. 

If you’re using the Amazon app, visit smile.amazon.com first and select NCMEC as your charity of choice. Once you’ve selected us online, open your Amazon app, tap on AmazonSmile in the settings menu and just follow the instructions on your phone. 

Does AmazonSmile Cost Anything?

There is no cost to charities or customers, and 100 percent of the donation generated from eligible purchases will go directly to NCMEC.  

Why the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children?  

Because missing and exploited children need your help. Together we can FIND missing children; REDUCE child trafficking and exploitation and PREVENT future victimization of children. 

Can my purchases really make a difference?

Yes! Every penny adds up. We can help hundreds of kids if we all switched to AmazonSmile and used it every time we order from Amazon. 

Now that’s something to SMILE about!
