Helping Animal Rescuers Tip #5


Tip #5 – Donate through Amazon Smile

Did you know you can donate 5% of all of your purchases on Amazon to an animal rescue? Visit smile.amazon.com and select the charity you want to support. Amazon will donate a portion of every order you make, and you’ll still find the same items at the same prices.

If you are one of the many people doing their shopping on Amazon, you can help donate to any charity group registered with Amazon Smile without any additional cost to you. The first time you use Amazon Smile, you’ll be prompted to select a charity to support, and every time you shop on Amazon Smile in the future they will put aside 5% of your order total to donate quarterly to the charity you’ve selected. Amazon Smile has all of the same products at the same prices as the regular Amazon website, and you will find the same familiar layout and features while you are shopping. Amazon Prime members can also use all of their prime benefits too!

If you want to be sure that you are using Amazon Smile each time you shop, you can also use browser extensions to make it easier to make sure you are checking out on the right website. On Google Chrome, you can use the add-on Smile Always from the Google Play store. If you are using Firefox, you can use the add-on Smile Redirect from Firefox’s add-on page.
