Umbrella Initiatives is partnering with amazon.com so that every time you purchase an item through Amazon Smile, 0.5% of your purchase is donated to Umbrella. This partnership will hopefully support several more backpacks to students striving to achieve academically in Peru.
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges. From time to time, we may offer special, limited time promotions that increase the donation amount on one or more products or services or provide for additional donations to charitable organizations. Special terms and restrictions may apply. Please see the relevant promotion for complete details.
