Did you know you can donate to the American Academy of Dermatology every time you make a purchase on Amazon? The AAD is officially registered as a beneficiary of the AmazonSmile program. 

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way to support the AAD every time you shop, with no additional cost to you. Over tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations.

Simply go to and start shopping; when they ask you to select a charitable organization, type in American Academy of Dermatology — which is registered as a member of the program.

A great way to support the Academy is when you shop for your kids' back-to-school items. #StartWithaSmile at and Amazon will donate to the Academy.
