There have been numerous studies on the health benefits of smiling. The simple act of smiling causes the release of Endorphins in the body. Endorphins are neurotransmitters that make us feel happy and less stressed. Fine you are saying, you already knew that. Well, here is a fun fact on smiling that you may not have known…if we all smiled in 2013, we would have raised $375 Million for charity…
How Can a SMILE Raise Money For Charities?
In truth, it is another form of SMILE that can raise all this money for Charity – Amazon Smile. If you simply visit Smile.Amazon.Com you can select a charity and then .5% of any purchase you make on Amazon goes to the charity. Instead of shopping Amazon.Com you shop Smile.Amazon.Com and you are helping out a charity of your choice.
We want to be clear, this program cost you nothing. You get the exact same prices, same Prime benefits, some products – the only difference is when you use Smile.Amazon.Com Amazon is giving .5% of what you spend to the charity you select. While .5% might not sound like much, Amazon posted sales of $75 Billion in 2013. This means if we all used SMILE last year, we would have raised $375 Million for charities!
