SMILE! We’re on Amazon!

CTBF, Inc. & Created To Be Free Mentoring
have teamed up with AmazonSmile

While we at CTBF, Inc. are aware that not everyone reading this blog shops at Amazon – for any number of good reasons – we have chosen to give those of you who do, an opportunity to make a part of your purchases help us help men & families through our Mentoring and outreach program.

What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile ( is an avenue where nonprofit organizations like ours receive a donation from Amazon based on your qualifying purchases at Amazon. It’s a seamless way for you to support your favorite charity every time you shop at Amazon.

What does it cost?
Amazon covers all the costs of the donation, including accounting and administrative fees. When you use AmazonSmile instead of your usual Amazon account the cost of your regular purchases will not increase because you chose to support CTBF, Inc. Every quarter, Amazon pays CTBF, Inc. 0.5% of your qualifying purchases.

How do I use AmazonSmile?
There are two ways to get into your AmazonSmile account and start supporting CTBF, Inc:

You can use our CTBF, Inc. link to go directly to our AmazonSmile page and start shopping,


You can go to the AmazonSmile page at and set up an AmazonSmile account. You’ll have to choose CTBF, Inc. from the nonprofit search menu when you log in the first time. AmazonSmile uses a separate website address from the usual Amazon shopping because Amazon spends no marketing or advertising money on AmazonSmile. It is totally dependent upon word-of-mouth. In order for your purchases to apply you’ll have to intentionally use your AmazonSmile account.

If you use the Amazon Shopping App, search for and turn on AmazonSmile and choose CTBF, Inc. as your charity. Once activated, your App should default to AmazonSmile.
