Support the Free Software Foundation when buying stuff on Amazon


So, this is pretty fantastic, especially if like me you buy a ton of stuff from Amazon Prime.

  1. Go to and sign in with your Amazon account.
  2. Search for “Free Software Foundation” in the list of charities, and pick the one in Boston, MA.
  3. Buy stuff on Amazon.

0.5% of all your purchases go to the FSF.

A great way to support the FSF and — the FSF is the host organization for GNU, and runs on the GNU FM we wrote, which is part of GNU. Phew.

PS. If you’re not following @librefm on GNU social (our other project) or @librefm on Twitter, you should do so.

PPS. Yes, we know Amazon has a lot of issues like Kindle DRM and doesn’t treat small publishers (like the FSF’s GNU Press) very well, but it’s a great place to buy large bags of candy, jars of Red Vines (Twizzlers suck!) and music by some of the artists on, which is another way you can support artists.
