Amazonsmile

Did you know if you buy merchandize from Amazonsmile.com they'll donate 0.05% of your total purchase to any charity you choose? I wish I knew sooner!! I chose Parrot Rescue of Tampa, but you can choose from a lot of parrot rescues from all over the country, just type in parrot rescue and there's a list of quite a few to choose from. Now I have a good reason to shop til I drop!!

Well that is very nice of your Amazon. I'm with Amazon.co.uk, I just checked my Amazon and ours don't do this donation thingy.

It's a nice idea, but with only 0.05% donation to the charity, it's not much. So, if you spend $100, only a few cents really go to charity. Did you mean 5%?

They donate 0.5% of your purchase. I accidentally hit too many zeros. It may not be a whole lot depending on your spending habits, but I figure if I have to buy something anyway, it at least might benefit birds needing rescue. Even a little something is better than nothing.
