What is AmazonSmile?
Did you know that whenever you make a purchase from Amazon.com, you can choose to have a portion of the proceeds go to a charity of your choice? It’s as easy as adding “smile.” to the URL: smile.amazon.com
AmazonSmile is operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.
Every item available for purchase on www.amazon.com is also available on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) at the same price. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages.
For more information about the AmazonSmile program, go to http://smile.amazon.com/about.

About The Face of Cancer
The Face of Cancer is a non-profit, non-medical public service program that helps to provide female cancer patients the support and help in addressing a particularly devastating part of their cancer battle, their physical appearance.
Founded by cancer survivor Holly Carter, owner of Fresno based Carter & Co. Communications, The Face of Cancer seeks to build a network of local firms who will provide services related to making cancer patients feel better about their appearance and help to restore their feeling of femininity and beauty. In addition, The Face of Cancer seeks to be a resource for women to find answers to questions they may have regarding resources available that enhance their appearance as they go through the cancer battle.
Fundraising efforts will center on raising funds to help those who cannot afford the cost of these services.
