Here’s a painless way to support LifeRing if you’re going to shop at Amazon any way. Don’t go straight to Amazon. Start your shopping by first clicking on the Amazon smile button on the upper right of this site or on LifeRing.org. The Smile program does not change your purchase price. At the cost of one extra click for you, LifeRing gets a cut of your purchase (0.5% – that adds up!). You can even configure your Amazon account to send money to LifeRing without going through LifeRing web sites. I do this because when I’m thinking about buying something, I might not be thinking about LifeRing. For details on the Smile program, go here.
To change your charitable organization permanently:
- Sign in to smile.amazon.com on your desktop or mobile phone browser.
- From your desktop, go to Your Account from the navigation at the top of any page, and then select the option to Change your Charity. Or, from your mobile browser, select Change your Charity from the options at the bottom of the page.
- Select a new charitable organization to support. Search for “LifeRing”.

To free up the screen real estate for the Smile button I had to retire one of my favorite graphics so let’s make this worthwhile.
