Shop on Amazon Smile & Amazon will donate to Lakeview PTO on your behalf!

If you already shop on Amazon, or if you’re looking for the perfect gift for a loved one, we invite you to shop at smile.amazon.com and choose Lakeview Elementary PTO as your charity of choice. Below you can read about how to use Amazon Smile. Customers can now elect to donate 0.5% of their purchase to the charity of their choice. This is all made possible by shopping on smile.amazon.com.

How Does it Work?

1. Visit smile.amazon.com.

The entire shopping experience is the same and most products available on amazon.com are available at Amazon Smile.

2. Once you are signed in, search and choose “Lakeview Elementary Pto”

There are multiple Lakeview results, we are the 6th from the top.

Once selected, you will receive an email confirmation and you can begin shopping.

4. Begin shopping!

Once you’ve selected your charity everything else functions the same. Shop for your favorite products or the perfect gift. Most products are eligible on Amazon Smile–if not, you’ll be notified.
