Do you like to shop on Amazon? Do you like supporting the VMDAEC Education Scholarship Foundation? Did you know you can do both at the same time while shopping on AmazonSmile?

You can support this important charitable foundation when you shop at Amazon, and at no cost to you. Here’s how it works: Go to in your web browser; it also is available for iOS and Android devices.

According to Amazon, when you activate AmazonSmile, you’ll have the same shopping experience as usual, plus AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. In this case, you’ll want to choose the VMDAEC Education Scholarship Foundation.

It’s quick and easy to set up and, if you already have an account, you can use the same account, so all your account settings will remain the same.

You can find all the details on their website, About AmazonSmile.

Thank you for supporting the Association and the VMDAEC Education Scholarship Foundation
