What does our unique link do?

Do you have to click on my charity's AmazonSmile link every time you shop?
No. Once customers select Our Lady of Good Counsel, we will receive 0.5% of the price of all your eligible smile.amazon.com purchases, regardless of whether you use our unique AmazonSmile link to return to the site. However, we ask that you bookmark and use your link so you don't accidentally shop at www.amazon.com instead ofsmile.amazon.com. Only purchases made at smile.amazon.com are eligible for donations.
