Setting Up Amazon Smile to Support The Ubuntu Lab

When you shop with an Amazon Smile account linked to The Ubuntu Lab, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to our organization (at no additional cost to you).

It may not seem like much, but over the course of a year it really adds up for us! In the past we have been able to cover up to 50% of our office expenses just from Amazon Smile payouts.
