Support 1P5 Through Amazon Smile Today for 10x The Benefit!

These days, most of us are doing a lot more shopping online. Because of this, we’ve partnered with the Amazon Smile program, which means that whenever you shop at Amazon with 1P5 selected as your supported charity, a portion of the proceeds of every eligible purchase goes to support our work.

Usually, that number is pretty small. But we just got word from Amazon that for just one day — Today, March 16 only — they’re going to donate 10 times the normal purchase percentage.

Here’s the note we received:

The American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) surveyed over 10,000 customers to measure perceptions of quality and value across retailers nationwide, and Amazon ranked #1.

In celebration of this recognition—and to say thank you to our customers for their support—on Thursday, March 16 only, Amazon will donate 5% (10 times our usual donation rate) of the price of eligible products customers purchase at This offer begins at 12:00 AM Pacific Time, and expires at 11:59 PM Pacific Time.

On Thursday, March 16, share the message below on social media, your website, and in email to increase donations to One Peter Five Inc. (Please do not share this promotion outside your organization until Thursday, March 16.)

Amazon is celebrating its #1 ranking in customer satisfaction by the ACSI! Today, March 16, Amazon will donate 5% (10 times the usual donation rate) of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to One Peter Five Inc. Get started at

If you’re considering any Amazon purchases this week, please consider going through our Amazon Smile portal and doing your shopping tomorrow. With no extra cost to you, it could be of great benefit to us.

    • Should be. It’s pretty simple. It appears from googling that it is on in UK.

      On the 1P5 Menu Bar above, select “Store”, then pull down to “1P5 On Amazon Smile”.

      That links you direct to Amazon through the “Smile Charity Portal”. It looks just like the Amazon Browser, but with the “Amazon Smile” logo appearing in the top left corner (once you are logged in); and the Charity you selected appearing below your Search Window.

      Accessed this way, it is a normal Amazon shopping experience that automatically channels money to the charity you select (1P5). It is seamless and automatic.

      To get logged into Smile so that all shopping channels money to 1P5, transfer to Smile through the pull down above. Then: (1): log in to Amazon, (2): select “Your AmazonSmile” from the “Your Account” pull down; (3): Set up Smile as you prefer (designate 1P5 as your charity of choice).

      Link to Amazon from 1P5, if desired, for all future Smile purchases

  1. I have given hundreds of dollars to a great (Catholic-to-the-core) charity through

    Readers: If you want to do this, be sure to go to the web address that BEGINS with “smile”… in this case,

    There is always the traditional way of giving, which I have done here at 1P5. Easy as 1-2-3 using credit cards!

  2. Jeff Bezo’s politics means I no longer support Amazon, but I do plan on using some of my tax refund to support 1P5.
