The holiday season is just around the corner. This year, many of us may use amazon.com to do our holiday shopping, so why not make a difference while shopping for your gifts and generate donations for Occoquan Swimming, Inc?

What is AmazonSmile?

It's an easy way to maximize your impact this holiday season: For every eligible AmazonSmile purchase you make, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to Occoquan Swimming Inc., at no extra cost to you. It's a great way to take advantage of a service you may already use, and you don't have to make a separate Amazon account to do it.

AmazonSmile is simply Amazon: The sites are the same. Everything you find on Amazon.com is also on AmazonSmile. Same products, deals, prices, gift wrapping options, and shipping.

There is no registration fee: You don't pay extra for signing up; and there is no increase in costs to buy your items. If you are an Amazon Prime member who receives free two-day shipping, you will still receive your free two-day shipping even if you purchase your products through AmazonSmile.
