Amazon offers ways to support charitable organizations while shopping for everyday items!
Since November 2021, Texas Folklife has received $110 in charitable donations to our organization using AmazonSmile while shopping! The AmazonSmile platform is similar to the original online marketplace, but 0.5% of the cost of eligible items you purchase is donated by Amazon to a charity you designate. These donations are not at an additional cost to you!
