Introducing AmazonSmile for Convention of States!

We get it: in today's economic climate, it isn't always possible to contribute financially to every good cause. Money is tight, and we understand if you aren't able to donate at this time.

Fortunately, there's AmazonSmile.

AmazonSmile is a program in which Amazon automatically donates 0.5% of every purchase you make on Amazon.com. You don't spend an extra cent -- Amazon sends the money directly to the Convention of States Project whenever you use their website.

It's the same products, prices, and service you're used to from Amazon, except every time you shop you're also supporting the Convention of States Project. Here's what you do:

Step 1: Go to smile.amazon.com

Step 2: Find our organization:

Citizens for Self-Governance
EIN 27-1657203
106 E 6th Street, Suite 900, Austin, TX 78701

Step 3: Whenever you shop on Amazon, make sure that you are shopping at smile.amazon.com.

That's it! It's a simple, easy, free way to support the Convention of States Project and further the cause of liberty in our great nation.
