Shopping for peace

These days, when I shop at Amazon, I do so via "Amazon Smile." It's Amazon's charity initiative. Your prices don't go up, but Amazon donates 0.5 percent of your purchases to the charity that you choose.

I chose Antiwar.com.

Angela Keaton (director of operations at Antiwar.com) explains,

Antiwar.com's parent organization, the Randolph Bourne Institute, has enrolled Amazon.com's "Smile" program. Through Smile, we will receive 0.5% of the money you spend at Amazon so long as you get there using the link https://smile.amazon.com/ch/71-0929026.

We'll be working to convert our "regular" Amazon affiliate links to Smile links for some extra juice -- 0.5% PLUS "affiliate commissions." You probably shop at Amazon anyway. When you do it this way, you support Antiwar.com at no extra cost to yourself.
