Giving Tuesday and Amazon Smile

Giving Tuesday and Amazon Smile are two ways to support those suffering from AE. The first Tuesday in December has become a world-wide call for people to celebrate the art of giving; a joining of communities to “give rather than receive.”  Please visit donate to AE Alliance to support those in need and share your giving news on Facebook, tweet about it, or simply remind a friend about the day.

AmazonSmile” is a simple and automatic way for you to support AEA every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at you’ll find the exact same low prices, selection and convenient shopping experience as, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to AEA. Simply visit from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark to to make it even easier to return and start your shopping. You use your same account on and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, wish list, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same. More information can be found at AmazonSmile.

Your donations allow patients, families, care-givers, and those in the medical field to speak with AEA directly and access our growing resources. Additionally, we had over 300,000 visits to our website in 2016 alone. Your support makes this world-wide resource exist.
