Shop on Amazon Smile and Amazon will donate to Save A Rescue on your behalf!
This is such a simple way to help save pets without any cost to you! Simply make your normal Amazon purchases after following a few start up steps.
Amazon is one of the most widely used websites in the world. As of October 2013, Amazon customers can now elect to donate 0.5% of their purchase to the charity of their choice. This is all made possible by shopping on smile.amazon.com.
If you already shop on Amazon, or if you’re looking for the perfect gift for a loved one, we invite you to shop at smile.amazon.com and choose Save A Rescue as your charity of choice. Below you can read about how to use Amazon Smile.
How Does it Work?
1. Visit smile.amazon.com.
The entire shopping experience is the same as what you are used to and most products available on amazon.com are available at Amazon Smile.
2. Sign in and Choose Save a Rescue as your designated charity
The screen will look slightly different depending on whether or not you’re already signed into Amazon. If you’re already signed in, you’ll see a screen like the one below. Simply search for “Save a Rescue Westlake Village CA”. If you paste in that exact phrase the search will take you directly to the right choice.
If you’re not signed in yet, you’ll need to enter your Amazon login information. Then proceed to step 3.
3. Select “Save a Rescue”
After signing in, search for:
save a rescue westlake village ca
If you search for a charity, such as “Save a Rescue” you will be given a list of possible matches. Using the exact phrase in blue above will get you to the choice you are looking for more quickly. Select the charity of your choice to continue.
Once selected, you will receive an confirmation from Amazon and you can begin shopping. Remember that you need to start from smile.amazon.com for Amazon to automatically count your purchases. If your computer, ipad or phone remembers the regular Amazon address (amazon.com) you’ll want to update your link or bookmark to start from the right place to make it easy in the future.
4. Begin shopping!
Once you’ve selected your charity everything else functions just as you are used to. Shop for your favorite products or the perfect gift. Most products are eligible on Amazon Smile–if not, you’ll be notified. You can checkout normally as well. No extra cost is passed onto you–Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to Save A Rescue!
5. Share with your friends
After you’ve successfully completed a purchase on Amazon Smile you can share the news with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or via email. This option appears on the confirmation page after your order is complete, so it is easy to do.
We are delighted with Amazon for their efforts to support charities. We hope you will take the opportunity to support Save a Rescue with your eligible purchases on smile.amazon.com.
