    Sign-up for Amazon Smile to make your in-kind donation go even further!

    AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support Covenant House California every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to the Cov!

    How do I select a charitable organization to support when shopping on AmazonSmile?
    On your first visit to AmazonSmile:, you need to select Covenant House California to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at will result in a donation to benefit youth experiencing homelessness.
