Shop on AmazonSmile and Amazon will donate to Animas Valley Elementary School!

Although we all try to go Local First, there are times that we simply cannot find a special item or gift locally.  With the holiday season upon us, if you do any on-line shopping at Amazon, you can also give to your child’s school, Animas Valley Elementary School.

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support the Animas Valley Elementary Booster Club every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to the AVE Booster Club. 

Get started with these easy steps:

1.) Visit It’s just like shopping on

2.) Sign in. Simply use your existing Amazon credentials. If you don’t have an account, you can create a new one.

3.) Start shopping! After you’ve chosen your charity (Animas Valley Elementary School Booster Club), your shopping experience will be the same as it is on the Amazon website. And there’s no extra cost for you at checkout! Amazon will donate 0.5 percent of your purchase, excluding shipping, handling and tax, to the AVE Booster Club.

4.) Please remember to shop our link every time. Purchases on the main site do not support AVE. To help remember, bookmark our link.

5.) Spread the word! Once you’ve checked out, Amazon makes it easy to spread the news with your friends and family by giving you an option to share on Facebook and Twitter. Please be sure to let everyone know you've supported the Animas Valley Elementary School Booster Club by including the #StartWithASmile hashtag.

Thank you so much for supporting the children at Animas Valley Elementary School by shopping on AmazonSmile.
