How to use AmazonSmile to provide help and hope
for children and adults living with disabilities
If you use AmazonSmile, you can consistently give back to UCP Heartland when you buy items you would regularly purchase on Amazon. Once you get your AmazonSmile set up, you don’t have to think about it again!
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices and shopping features as Amazon.com, with the bonus that Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price to United Cerebral Palsy Heartland. Using AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way to support UCP Heartland and the amazing people we serve every time you shop. While the donation from each purchase might seem small, purchases from numerous UCP Heartland supporters like yourself can really add up over time.

How to Shop AmazonSmile on Mobile:
A drawback to AmazonSmile is you must make your purchases from the site and not from the Amazon app. Fortunately, there is a way to work around and still use AmazonSmile on a mobile device.
- Use your phone or tablet mobile browser and navigate to smile.amazon.com instead of using the Amazon app.
- If you choose to use the app, simply add your items to your cart via the app, but finish the checkout purchase on your browser from smile.amazon.com
- Add the AmazonSmile landing page to your Apple device home screen by visiting smile.amazon.com, then hit the share button and click “Add to Home Screen”
