Support While you Shop!

Shopping on “Amazon Smile” ( is the SAME as shopping on the traditional Amazon website — same products, same prices, same shipping rates and deals.  But, when you choose “Formando Vidas Inc” as the charity you support, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to support the kids, teens, and families we serve here in Colombia!
