Redirects any www.amazon.com page to smile.amazon.com
SmileAlways makes giving to charity easy by automatically redirecting all Amazon.com pages to smile.amazon.com.
v.87 Release Notes:
The latest version removed the toggle switch as privacy concerns outweighed the small amount of cases where the switch was useful.
If you run into errors on specific sections of amazon, you can temporarily disable the extension through the chrome extensions page. Please also provide feedback on what links cause errors so I can fix them :)
This extension makes giving to charity easy by automatically redirecting all Amazon.com pages to smile.amazon.com.
Through Amazon's AmazonSmile initiative, 0.5% of your purchases on eligible items will automatically be donated to the charity of your choice.
SmileAlways does not collect any information about your identity or browsing or purchasing activity; we just want to help you give to charity every time you shop at Amazon, without having to remember to start at smile.amazon.com.
SmileAlways was developed by two MIT students, Josh Haimson and Dan Elitzer. Josh and Dan wrote and published the initial version of this extension on November 10th, 2013, dedicating it to the memory of Aaron Swartz. We hope in our lifetimes to contribute to the world a fraction of the impact Aaron achieved during the far too short time he was among us.
While we encourage everyone who shops at Amazon to use this extension, we hope you will also find other ways to contribute to charitable causes you care about by directly donating your dollars, skills, and time. If you are unsure which charity you want to give to, please check out the organizations recommended by GiveWell, a charity research and evaluation group with whom Aaron volunteered his time.
