AmazonSmile. You shop. Amazon gives.

The Hackett Auto Museum announced today it has partnered with AmazonSmile. An online shopping option which allows shoppers to make charitable donations to their favorite non-profit organizations.

Ted O’Dell, executive director of the Hackett Auto Museum said, “This online shopping perk is a great way to give back to charities effortlessly while supporting our local community.” There is no cost to Amazon customers and one hundred percent of the donation generated goes to the Horace & Mable Hackett Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit affiliated with the Hackett Auto Museum.

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice at no cost to the customer.

Since its launch in 2013, AmazonSmile has donated over $80 million to eligible charities. The Hackett Auto Museum building, located at 615 Hupp Avenue, is the birthplace to the Jaxon steam car, Jackson gasoline car, Standard Electric, Argo and Hackett automobiles.

Jackson, Michigan is the documented home of 33 which were automobiles designed, engineered, assembled or manufactured in Jackson from 1897 through 1954.
