If you are moved by this to buy some of Maya Angelou’s works, please consider doing so through AmazonSmile, and designating a Maya Angelou related charity (so they can benefit from your purchases). You can always change your designation to a different non-profit later, if you like.

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. Shop ’til you help!
