Yes, your history, your digital content, your account information, any saved address or payment information, and if applicable, Amazon Prime is ALL still available when you shop with Amazonsmile. The site will look the SAME as always, the only difference is that you will see “Amazonsmile” at the top left, and when using the full site you will also see near the top of the page that you are supporting “EMDR Research Foundation”.

YES, it could! If all the people who receive our emails register the EMDR Research Foundation as their Amazonsmile charity and then make only $100 in purchases through Amazonsmile, the Foundation will be able to fund one additional $5,000 Dissertation Grant award, or a combination of 5 EMDR Dissemination/Travel or Research Consultation awards. That is if folks only spend $100 through Amazonsmile. This program lasts all year long – just think about how much this could add up to!

Simply use the link https://smile.amazon.com/ch/72-1601034. If you have previously registered a different charity, Amazonsmile will let you know that, and will ask if you would like to change your charity to the EMDR Research Foundation. We certainly hope you will choose our Foundation, but also understand if you would prefer your Amazonsmile dollars to go to another organization. Note that you can always change your charity.

Pretty much, however, in order for your purchases to lead to AmazonSmile donations, you must use the URL: http://smile.amazon.com OR https://smile.amazon.com/ch/72-1601034 every time you make a purchase at Amazon. To make it easier to use the Amazonsmile program, you may want to “bookmark” http://smile.amazon.com or https://smile.amazon.com/ch/72-1601034.

Unfortunately, no.  If you prefer to shop or browse using Amazon’s app,  go ahead and add items to your shopping cart using the app, but then use your browser to open www.smile.amazon.com to complete your purchase. Everything that you left in your shopping cart will still be waiting for you. You may want to create a link on your phone/device to www.smile.amazon.com.
