Giving Back This Holiday Season with AmazonSmile Charity Lists

2020 hasn’t been the year we all imagined it would be. It has taught us the importance of enjoying the little things in life and giving back to our community and those who need it most.

I love how AmazonSmile Charity Lists make it so easy to give back. 

At, you can find an organization to give back to by browsing by cause (from Pets & Animals, Environment, and Health…to Veterans and Arts and Culture) or simply searching for your favorite organizations. I already knew I wanted to donate to an animal organization, so I added the keyword “Miami” in the search bar, and AmazonSmile gave me a list of animal organizations IN Miami. 

I was super excited to see that “Jamie’s Rescue” was on the list - that’s the rescue where we adopted Susy from in January. This organization was founded by Jamie Robinson, a past photographer for the White House in the 70s, who nurtures puppies and dogs back to health and puts them up for adoption.

To adopt Susy, we were interviewed by Jamie a few times - we visited the rescue twice and we were in complete awe by seeing all the dogs run freely around the house and backyard. It’s like she lives with the dogs, and not the other way around. You can tell it is a labor of love.

Once you select an AmazonSmile Charity List, you can view their full wish list – and in Jamie’s Rescue’s case, it mostly includes pet supplies and cleaning products. You can then purchase items to donate and have them directly delivered to the organization’s designated address.

I am very excited to give back to the place that gave us our precious little Susy. 

In addition to charity lists, you can also support your favorite charitable organization at no extra cost to you just by shopping through AmazonSmile. Visit and browse Amazon’s wide selection of holiday deals and low price items, receive fast and free delivery options, and more. The best part is, when you start your shopping at, Amazon will automatically donate a portion of the purchase price of eligible products to a charity of your choice.  

And it gets even earier than that! If you are in the giving spirit and wish to make a monetary donation, you can simply say “Alexa, I want to make a donation” to any Alexa enabled device to get started. 

Let’s make the holidays a bit more wonderful for those who need it most! Click here if you are ready to give back and browse AmazonSmile Charity Lists – and share how you’re giving back this season with #DeliveringSmiles.
