These uncertain times have brought about a lot of hardship for so many people. I am very aware that there are so many women who have lost their jobs and are finding it difficult to provide for their families. So many are struggling and need help getting back on their own two feet. Growing up, my parents instilled the importance of hard work. As immigrants, they didn’t believe in handouts, but believed that once given opportunity, one could thrive and be able to provide for themselves and their families.
That is why I have supported Dress for Success in the past and will continue to support this charity, as it helps prepare women for the workforce. Getting women ready for the workplace so they can support themselves and their families is extremely important to me. To ensure these women can succeed in their careers, I am so proud to be partnering with Amazon to give back this holiday season.
Amazon offers so many easy ways to give back – one of my favorites is shopping through AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support your favorite charitable organizations every time you shop, at no cost to you. Just start your shopping at smile.amazon.com/holiday – you’ll find the exact same low prices, fast and free delivery options, and vast selection you know from Amazon – with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price from eligible items to a charity of your choice. I am an avid Amazon shopper, and it truly puts a smile on my face to know that every time I shop through AmazonSmile, I’m giving back to Dress for Success. A good way to remember to shop through AmazonSmile is to bookmark the page. Simply press Command B on your keyboard. Or drag this box to your favorites bar to create a shortcut to smile.amazon.com on your desktop computer or mobile web browser.
If you want to give back by purchasing items directly for organizations that matter to you, try shopping with AmazonSmile Charity Lists. Numerous charities and organizations – including those focused on addressing hunger and homelessness in communities who have been hit hardest in 2020 – have already set up lists full of essential items – and with AmazonSmile Charity Lists, you can purchase items directly from their lists! All you have to do is visit smile.amazon.com/charitylists to browse by cause or search for your favorite organizations to have donated products delivered directly to their designated address. This year, as part of my partnership with Amazon and their #DeliveringSmiles efforts, I got to purchase items directly from the Charity List of my local Habitat for Humanity! You can see how easy it was for me in my Instagram Story.

Plus, if you’re in the giving spirit and simply want to make a monetary donation, it’s just as easy! All you have to do is say “Alexa, I want to make a donation” to any Alexa enabled device to get started.

I know this holiday season will be difficult for so many, that is why we all need to do our part and try our best to giveback and put smile on the faces of those who need it the most. Pay it forward and share how you’re giving back with #DeliveringSmiles.
