Amazon.com might be donating some big bucks to M.A.R.S! (wouldn’t that be A-mazing!).
The world’s largest online retailer has just launched an exciting new charity program named AmazonSmile which could mean big things for charities and nonprofits everywhere.
Amazon will allow shoppers to direct 0.5 percent of their purchase totals toward a charitable organization of their choice. That means no out of pocket money from you because Amazon will then donate the money on behalf of its customers! Basically every physical product is eligible – digital media products (e.g. ebooks, digital music) are not included yet, but might be added soon. Considering how much we all buy from Amazon this can really add up and be super helpful to non-profits everywhere (something to really SMILE about!).
Please show your support in this new and convenient way and sign up on AmazonSmile today! The registration process is very easy:
- Go to AmazonSmile via your favorite internet browser and type log-in information of your Amazon.com account to sign-in box. (If you are not an Amazon.com customer yet, consider to become one)
- Under the sentence “Or pick your own charitable organization”, type “Melbourne Avian Rescue”
- You’ll see the listing with our full charity name, “Melbourne Avian Rescue Society”. Click on ‘Select’.
Done! From now on, M.A.R.S. is saved as your preferred charity. Every time you make a purchase, a percentage of your total will be donated to us. Bookmark the homepage of AmazonSmile, and make it a habit to log-in from this charity program when shopping at Amazon.
Donations go to feeding, housing and rehabilitating our birds so they can be adopted into caring homes. We also offer training and preparation for prospective bird owners as well, to help pair owners and parrots that will make the best families.
Signing up for AmazonSmile could make a lot of birds happy while you shop for your necessities and holiday gifts. For more info, check out AmazonSmile’s FAQ page. Spread the word – let your friends know about this opportunity through Facebook, Twitter or good ole word of mouth! We hope to be smiling a lot around here at M.A.R.S. this holiday season!
