You shop. Amazon donates to LifeROOTS.

Amazon users, you’re already halfway to supporting our mission to help adults and children in the Albuquerque region gain higher levels of self-sufficiency in their lives and their futures.

The world’s largest online marketplace offers you the opportunity to consistently and automatically donate to LifeROOTS without having to adjust your home budget or spend any additional money.

All it takes is a single click.

The AmazonSmile Foundation allows you to designate LifeROOTS as the charity you’d like to receive a portion of the money you spend on Amazon.

Making that designation is simple.

Here’s how you do it:

  • Go to
  • Sign in to AmazonSmile using your existing credentials.
  • On your first visit you will be prompted to select a charity.
  • Choose LifeROOTS.
  • Bookmark
  • Shop!

It’s that easy.

For every eligible purchase you make through, which has all of the same products that are available on and for the same prices with tens of millions of products eligible for AmazonSmile, LifeROOTS will receive .5 percent of the money you spend.

Every penny adds up and helps us respond to the increasing and ever-changing needs of children and adults with physical, developmental and behavioral disabilities in the Albuquerque area through our forward-thinking and comprehensive programs that provide critical services like day habilitation, supported employment and free early childhood intervention.

By designating LifeROOTS as your AmazonSmile Foundation charity, you can be proud knowing that with minimal effort you are having a major impact in improving the lives of your neighbors. If you are already shopping through the AmazonSmile site, and would like to make LifeROOTS the beneficiary of your future purchases, just go to and from your desktop, go to Your Account at the top of the page and select Change Your Charity, or from your mobile browser, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Change Your Charity.
