Support ACT through AmazonSmile

AmazonSmile is a charitable program that donates 0.5% of eligible purchases to 501(c)(3) non-profits. In order for ACT to receive this donation, you must shop through AmazonSmile instead of Amazon (see instructions below). AmazonSmile is linked to your normal Amazon account so you do not need to create a new account.

To choose ACT as your charitable organization:

  1. Go to and log-in with your normal Amazon account information (or create an account).
  2. Near the bottom of the "Select a Charitable Organization to Start Shopping" page you will see a box under "Or pick your own charitable organization." In that box type "AIDS Connecticut" then click on "Search".
  3. On the next page you should see "AIDS Connecticut, Inc." as the first choice. Click on "Select" next to our name.
  4. Start shopping!
