With the advent of online shopping culture came a new way to shop Black Friday, and it just keeps getting better. Online shoppers can get many of the same deals from the comfort of their post-Thanksgiving pajamas.
If you’re planning to shop on Amazon this Black Friday, you can support the Bairs Foundation while you’re at it — and at no additional cost to you. By adding the foundation as your charity of choice on Amazon Smile, the purchases you would make anyway will benefit the work we do. Our unique charity link is: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/81-1207829
What is Amazon Smile?
AmazonSmile is a simple, automatic way for shoppers to support their favorite organization. Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are labeled as eligible for donations. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the eligible charitable organization of your choice.
Getting Started with Amazon Smile
On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you’ll select a charitable organization to receive donations from your eligible purchases. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation. Items available on AmazonSmile are the same price as those on Amazon.com.

Why Choose The Bairs Foundation?
The Bairs Foundation provides funding to help plaintiffs in need cover daily living expenses as they pursue litigation. So far, we have funded more than 150 plaintiffs and their families with a total of almost $1 million. However, this number is only 44 percent of the total requests we have received. It is clear there is a huge need for what we’re doing in this industry.
We need your help to continue our mission and expand our reach. As the first 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the plaintiff-funding industry, your support is critical to our success in funding families nationwide and influencing other non-profits to replicate our model. Any and all support is much appreciated.
