By shopping at Amazon, you can help us without spending a cent more

Amazon Smile is the same Amazon you know already. Same products. Same prices. Same service. Now, by starting your shopping at smile.amazon.com, you can designate us to receive 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases. You can support us without spending a cent more!

It’s very easy to designate us as your supported charity — get started in seconds!

  1. Click this link to Designate StopAfib.org (a division of the American Foundation for Women’s Health) as your supported charity 
  2. Sign into smile.amazon.com using your usual Amazon signon.
  3. Start shopping.

That’s it. Anytime you want to buy from Amazon, start at smile.amazon.com — it’s exactly the same as shopping at Amazon, but a half per cent of your purchase gets donated to us.
When you’re at Smile, you should see “Supporting: American Foundation for Women’s Health” at the top of the page.

When you buy something that supports us, it will even let you share on social media that you supported the American Foundation for Women’s Health.

Thanks for your help and support.
