We ask that you choose the National Coalition Against Prescription Drug Abuse as the charity you donate to when purchasing through Amazon. Instead of their usual website, go to and designate our organization as the non-profit you would like a percent of your purchase to go to.

It doesn’t cost a penny more for you to use this site – Amazon does the donating for you.  And, you’ll be supporting the NCAPDA’s community education programs that are critical to turning America’s prescription drug related addiction and overdose death crisis around.

Don’t let those available $$ go unassigned.  If not us, then choose another non-profit that can benefit from your support!

You can also support NCAPDA by making an on-line donation via our website:

Wishing you a healthy and happy 2020!
