Using Amazon Smile to Donate to DVU

Did you know there’s a way to combine giving to friends and family, and giving to the developmental disability advocacy community at the same time?

If you’re doing some shopping on Amazon, consider using Amazon Smile. When you shop at Amazon Smile instead of the main Amazon site, .5% of your eligible purchases are donated to a charity of your choice. DVU is registered as an Amazon Smile charity. Every little bit helps us advocate for choice and control, meaningful outcomes, and equitable systems.

If you’d like to give to DVU through Amazon Smile as part of your holiday shopping, here’s how!

1.) Go to You may be prompted to log in. If you are, use the email & password for your Amazon account.

2.) You’ll be directed to a page that says “Select an Organization to Start Shopping” at the top. Look for the search box below the phrase “Or pick your own organization.”

3.) Type in “Disability Voices United” to that search box, and hit “search.” DVU should be the first organization on the next page. We’re the Disability Voices United located in Manhattan Beach.

If you’re already using Amazon Smile but would like to switch your charity to DVU, just go to like normal. Under the search box, there’s a little orange text that says: “Supporting” and the name of whatever charity you have selected. Hit the small drop-down arrow next to your charity name. An information window pops up with the name of your charity, and the word “change” next to it. From there, it’s just like the steps above: search for Disability Voices United, and select us.
