Please remember when purchasing books resources online that you can support your profession and the community with every Amazon purchase if you register with Amazon Smile.  It’s a program that donates ½% of most Amazon purchases to a charity of your choice.  It costs you nothing!  We hope that your charity of choice is the Arizona Psychological Foundation, the non-profit community service arm of AzPA.  

  1. Type “Amazon Smile” within the subject line of your Amazon account – the same line where you look for items to buy.  You must be logged in to your account.
  2. Select “Arizona Psychological Foundation” as your charity.
  3. Then drag the “Amazon Smile” logo shown below to your Bookmarks Toolbar so you can use it every time that you shop with Amazon.
