How do I sign up?
When ready to shop Amazon, visit, and select St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as your designated charity, or click the button above to automatically select St. Jude. You only have to select St. Jude once, but you must shop at rather than on to continue to support St. Jude on subsequent visits to Amazon. 

Can I use my existing account?
