Step 1. Visit Smile.Amazon.com
Step 2. Sign in and Choose Your Charity
The screen will look slightly different depending on whether or not you’re already signed into Amazon. If you’re already signed in, you’ll see a screen like the one below. Simply search for “ADST” in the text box (circled below) and proceed to step 3.
If you’re not signed, enter your regular Amazon email address and password. Then proceed to step 3.
Step 3. Select “Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training”
Click “select” to the right of “Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training” to set ADST as your charity of choice.
Once selected, you can begin shopping normally. You’ll also receive an email notification from Amazon Smile confirming ADST as your selection. You will also see a “Supporting: Association for Diplomatic Studies & Training” displayed near the top of the Amazon Smile page, just below the product search box.
Step 4. Being Shopping!
Once you’ve selected your charity, just shop the same as you have in the past. Be sure to use smile.amazon.com (rather than www.amazon.com). Most Amazon products are eligible for Amazon Smile–if not, you’ll be notified. The checkout works normally as well. You will not incur any extra cost for using Amazon Smile – however, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to support ADST!
Step 5. Let Others Know
After completing a purchase on Amazon Smile, you can even share the news about how you can shop and donate with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or via email. This option appears on the confirmation page after your order is complete.
We hope you will take the opportunity to further support ADST while shopping on smile.amazon.com. Even if you’re not ready to make a purchase, consider setting up your charity selection right now!
