Hey everyone, I
think it's been mentioned before (though didn't see a topic in search) but for those who don't know, if you order through amazon.com, they have an area were if you buy through that section, they donate a portion of the sales to a charity! MHWF is listed there as a charity which is awesome. I know I end up ordering most of my textbooks and random needed items through amazon a lot and I'm sure a lot of people do too. I set MHWF as my primary charity to donate to. Lets see if we can get more people to do the same! http://smile.amazon.com/ is where to go through. It's probably not much but every little bit helps when it comes to helping horses!
I just learned about it too! .5% gets donated to the charity you select. This will probably be pretty significant from me because I buy WAY more stuff than I should on amazon, and it is where I almost solely buy my Christmas presents. It is the exact same look and availability of "regular" Amazon, you just have to go to a different site. My parents have been doing it for quite some time now I guess :P
I don't order often, but I just forwarded this to my sister - I'm pretty sure she's the reason they have Amazon Prime, lol. If she's not already doing this, I'm sure she will start!
Wish I knew this last Christmas. I bought almost everything from Amazon and LOVED shopping that way. So much easier. I will save the site for the future.
Just bumping this up as someone sent an email reminding me about this wonderful service from Amazon!
I shop Amazon a lot for work and personal..... I've been using the Smile site now that I know about it..

Thanks for bumping this up. I order a lot through Amazon, and am going to start using this option. Choosing MHWF the receive this support is so easy, and makes me feel like I'm saying thank you for all the great advice MHWF and all of you offer through them.
Good to know. I just set it up on my Amazon account and I shop through Amazon often!
This is a great way to raise funds for the horses. I also use iGive.com. There are several vendors who offer a percentage of sales to your designated rescue. Each company lists the amount they offer.
I didn't know about this. I will definitely put it to use and spread the word!
With the holidays right around the corner, and all of that shopping that's going to go down, thought I'd bump this thread again to remind people that they can help out the horses with those purchases and help make that more fun.
Thanks for informing me, I shop amazon all the time!
If there is anything else I should know about, please let me know.
We just found out about AmazonSmile and signed up for it. With all the stuff people get from Amazon,the amount donated to MHWF could add up. I'm not sure if it only applies if you're an Amazon Prime member or not just that part of the price of certain products go to the charity of your choice. No question of hat our choice was!
This is a really cool thing. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases and you don't have to be a Prime member, this works for everyone who shops on Amazon. You don't have to create a new account or anything. It's a very simple thing to do that could definitely add up.
