AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support St. Jude’s Ranch for Children every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at AmazonSmile, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price* to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. On your first visit go to and search for St. Jude’s Ranch for Children or tax ID 88-6006790, to select us as your charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. AmazonSmile will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation to our children!!

Everything else about the Amazon online shopping experience stays the same, including the shopping cart, wish lists and shipping options. The prices are also the same. You use the same account on and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same. The only difference is: when you start your visit at, Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages.

There is no cap on the amount Amazon will donate and almost every physical product sold by the company is eligible, which means tens of millions of items. This means that even high-end art – a relatively new category for Amazon – is eligible. The only real catch is you have to remember to start your shopping at (or update your Amazon bookmark). Otherwise, it's just like shopping on Amazon—only you get to support our kids without doing anything extra.

*The donation is calculated on the purchase price, which is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges. All payment methods available on, including Shop with Points, are available for use on AmazonSmile. Note that if you choose to Shop with Points, they will calculate donation amounts based on the price of the item (not the amount of points redeemed).Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible and neither are digital items (but that may change in the future, according to Amazon).
