Amazon and Charity

Approximately 64% of American households had a Prime membership in 2017.

One of the least-known and best perks of Amazon is that you can use your leftover boxes to ship donations to local charities for free. Go to GiveBackBox.com, click on the logo of the participating company you have a box sitting around from, type in your zip code and email address, and you'll get a prepaid shipping label emailed to you. After you fill the leftover box with your donations, attach the label and schedule a UPS pickup. There is no cost. Plus, GiveBackBox will email you a tax receipt for your records once your box is received.


Also, Amazon will give 0.5% of your purchase price to local organizations when you shop through Amazon Smile.
