Smile! You Just Shopped for a Cause

We all know how easy and convenient shopping online is. But did you know there’s a way to make it even more gratifying? And it requires nearly zero effort on your part.

Shop AmazonSmile and a portion of your purchase will be donated to the San Diego County Employees’ Charitable Organization (CECO). You can support CECO and their 60th anniversary efforts when you shop on Black Friday and Cyber Monday (and, really, year-round).

AmazonSmile functions the same as Amazon, but the online retailer donates 0.5 percent of the product price of eligible purchases to a charity of your choice (read: CECO!).

Using AmazonSmile is easy:

  1. Go to (different from the regular Amazon link).

  2. Sign in to your Amazon account or create one.

  3. If it is your first visit, pick your own charitable organization. Type “San Diego County Employees' Charitable Organization” or “CECO” as your charity. You can also visit this link and CECO will already be chosen for you as your charity.

  4. Shop as you normally would! (You will see eligible products marked as “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on product detail pages.)

  5. Bonus tip: Save the AmazonSmile link as a favorite and always shop from there.

There are several other ways to support CECO throughout the year. Make a biweekly donation via payroll deductions for as little as $2 per pay period. See CECO pledge instructions. Or you could make a one-time donation by contacting your CECO Department Representative or a member of the CECO Executive Committee.
