AMAZON SMILE DONATIONS
You can support Remainders when you shop on Amazon! Every time you shop on Amazon using our Remainders Link, Amazon will donate up to 10% of your total purchases to Remainders! In addition, if you select Remainders as your favorite charitable organization on AmazonSmile, another 0.5% will be donated to Remainders. The best part is that there is no limit on how much Amazon will donate! In fact, the more you shop, the more Remainders will receive. However, it only works if you use our specific Remainders Link (https://smile.amazon.com/ch/47-1563380), so bookmark it, use it, and share it!
