NEWS: Donate to us through Amazon!

Do you find yourself doing a lot of shopping on Amazon? Did you know that by shopping on Amazon you can also donate to one of your favorite causes, the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta!

Yes people, you did read that right – you can donate to the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta by shopping on Amazon, and of course, we would be very grateful if you did!


By now you’re probably wondering what we’re talking about and how this all works, right? Don’t you worry, we’re about to fill you in on that!

What is AmazonSmile?

So, AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon. It means you can buy the exact same products but, when you shop through AmazonSmile (, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice – we would obviously prefer that to be us!

How does AmazonSmile work?

All you have to do is make sure you type in into our browser, that little word smile is the all important piece that will start your donation! Then select your charitable organization once you click on AmazonSmile – you have to choose that before you start shopping – simple, right? Once you’ve done that, the cash from any eligible items will be donated to us automatically, you don’t have to do anything else. It couldn’t be any easier! There is no extra costs involved, you simply get the same shopping experience with the added benefit that the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate to the charitable organization you choose.

Just so you know, when you search for us please look for:
Friends of Goethe, Inc
That way you’ll be able to track us down, list us as your favorite organization (you only have to do this once, it remembers us for next time!) and get the donations rolling in! 

So, next time you’re about to order something from Amazon, make sure you add the word smile before amazon, that way you can do something good without even realizing it!
