Cyber Monday

Support Words Alive with AmazonSmile

Love using Amazon for your online shopping needs and also love helping Words Alive? You can do both! AmazonSmile allows any account holder to give 0.5% of their purchases to a charity of their choice. It's a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no extra cost to you. When using AmazonSmile, you'll find the same great low prices, wide selection, and convenient shopping experience as you do on The extra benefit: giving back to your favorite organization!

Getting started is simple, too. Visit and log in using your regular Amazon account, then choose Words Alive as the organization you'd like to support. Tens of millions of items are marked as "Eligible for AmazonSmile donation" on their product detail page, making it easy for you to give back to Words Alive. We encourage you to use AmazonSmile whenever shopping online, but we've set up a special holiday wishlist just in time for Cyber Monday!

Here's how to find the wishlist: once logged into your AmazonSmile account, hover over the Lists tab in the upper right-hand corner near the Cart. Click "Find a List or Registry," and type in Words Alive to the search bar. Check the sidebar on the left to make sure you're looking at our holiday book wishlist, then begin shopping! You can choose to have the books shipped directly to us, or you can send them to your home and drop them off in our office Monday through Thursday from 9am-3pm. 

Find great deals online on Cyber Monday and help support Words Alive while you shop. The books featured on our wishlist will be used in our Adolescent Book Group, Read Aloud, and Family Literacy programs and help inspire a life-long commitment to literacy. Purchasing books on Cyber Monday and donating them to Words Alive will help us give the gift of reading this holiday season!
