Support openHAB through Amazon Smile!

(Kai Kreuzer) #1


As the openHAB Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation (registered in Germany), we are eligible for Amazon Smile! This means that Amazon will donate 0.5% of your qualified purchases to the openHAB Foundation (without any additional costs for you).

If you like to support the openHAB Foundation, please consider using (instead of the normal - it will be highly appreciated!

That is great :slight_smile:

Here in the states I use i even have a chrome extension to make sure i ALWAYS get routed to smile. I have the ronald mcdonald house kids charity as mine.

The extension is here.
I am not affiliated with them in any way, nor do i know if it will work outside the states but if it does. Might help the project along :slight_smile:

Cool, thanks for the hint! I just installed the extension and it seems to work as expected for Germany as well :+1:

Small update: From Dec 1 to Dec 24, Amazon triples the amount that is given to the supported organisation to be 1.5% - so please make sure to use Amazon Smile if you are shopping anyhow :slight_smile:

Good to know, because Amazon itself still states 0.5% if I follow your link :wink:

“Amazon sammelt 0,5 % des Preises…”
