Giving with Amazon Smile

If you happen to be an Amazon online shopper, you can designate CEF of Tennessee as your "Smile" recipient. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. If you already have an Amazon account, please consider designating us as your charitable organization.

The quickest way to get to the Amazon smile site is to do the following. When you have found an item that you are about to purchase on the Amazon website, look at the internet address and simply replace the "www" with "smile," then hit the enter key. You will instantly be transferred to the Smile site where you can finish your purchase and we can receive the donation (if you designate us). It does not cost you anything extra and we get a donation. That is certainly a win - win deal!
