If you are a regular reader here, you know I serve as a foster care provider with Steele Away Home – Canine Foster and Rescue. Being a charity, we are (always) raising funds to keep doing what we do. We have a new way for you to help … and all you have to do is — SHOP! You like shopping right? Do you shop on Amazon.com?
Steele Away Home is an all-volunteer run 501(c)(3) and is now GuideStar accredited and registered with Amazon Smile. If you select us as your beneficiary, Amazon will donate a percentage of THEIR profits from your purchase to us as your chosen charity.
To do this, just go to https://smile.amazon.com, type Steele Away Home into the search window and select it from the results list. Wha-la — done! Now any time you go into Amazon through their Smile portal whatever you buy will benefit Steele Away Home. You can change charities any time you want, but you don’t have to select one each time: it remembers you. You DO have to enter their site through the Smile portal.
I’ve told my web browser to bookmark that web address as a tab on my tool bar. Now I don’t have to search through bookmarks, or even type AMAZON into my URL window: one click and I’m in and ready to help raise funds for my favorite rescue as I buy things my family needs.
If you’re not already doing this, please start. If you live in our area, please consider naming Steele Away Home as your charity. If you’re in NY, NJ, or PA, we don’t want to take anything away from our sister rescues, first look to see if they are listed. If not, we’d appreciate your support.
Your donation per shopping trip may only amount to a few cents, but if you get enough people tossing a few pennies to you on a regular basis, it adds up. And in any charity, every bit helps!
