826 National and Amazon are Teaming Up.

July 22, 2019

Online shopping is quick, convenient, and now supports young writers. Shop for a cause by supporting 826 National with AmazonSmile. Simply register 826 National as your preferred organization on AmazonSmile.com and 0.5% of every purchase will support over 68,000 students across the 826 Network. Here’s how: 


1. Select 826 National: Log onto AmazonSmile using your existing Amazon account, and search for 826 National in the welcome screen. You only have to select 826 National once, and the system will remember your choice.

2. Save: Bookmark AmazonSmile and start your shopping from there every time. Here’s the key — 826 National only benefits from your purchase if you’re shopping through an smile.amazon.com web address, rather than an amazon.com address. But don’t worry if you forget to begin your shopping spree at AmazonSmile. Navigate to AmazonSmile at any point before check-out, and all of the items will remain in your cart!

3. Share: Spread the word with friends and family! Once you register, AmazonSmile will give you the option to share via Facebook and Twitter so others can support 826 National, too.

That’s it! Once you choose 826 National, don’t forget to save the link for later and share it with everyone you know. Thank you for supporting the 826 Network!
