AmazonSmile is a great way for shoppers to donate to the Sunrise at Amazon's expense!

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers.

When you're shopping online, we ask that you consider choosing the Sunrise Preservation Group as your preferred charitable organization. It's not going to cost you a thing, and Amazon will send us a check!
