The holidays and holiday shopping have arrived. Please consider making your holiday purchases via the Amazon Smile program. When you do, be sure to select the I C You Foundation, Inc. as your supported charity and Amazon will contribute .5% of your total purchase to the Foundation.

If you haven’t already done so, designate the I C You Foundation, Inc. as your preferred charity by visiting the Amazon Smile site at https://smile.amazon.com/

The Amazon Smile platform has the same prices as the regular Amazon platform. To date the Amazon Smile program has donated nearly $39 million to charities worldwide. Let’s put some of that money to work to support youth that are blind and visually impaired!

In 2016, we provided support and services to the Maryland School for the Blind ($5,250), United State Association of Blind Athletes ($2,500), Blind Sports Organization ($1,000), Foundation Fighting Blindness ($1,000) and Tennessee School for the Blind ($500).
