Rainforest Trust supporters have a new way to help protect rainforests online. Rainforest Trust is now a registered charity with Amazon.com’s AmazonSmile program, which means that Amazon customers can support the organization each time they shop on the site.
Once enrolled in the AmazonSmile program, shoppers will have the option to choose Rainforest Trust as their preferred charity. Upon selection, the organization will receive 0.5% of all approved purchases.
AmazonSmile offers visitors the same experience and shopping options as Amazon.com but has a different web address: www.smile.amazon.com
“AmazonSmile makes it easy for supporters to incorporate rainforest protection into their online shopping routine,” said Malissa Cadwallader, Development Director for Rainforest Trust. “We are going to see some great results as the Rainforest Trust community learns about our association with AmazonSmile and signs up to participate. Like all donations, funds from AmazonSmile will go towards saving our planet’s irreplaceable biodiversity.”
Enrolling in AmazonSmile is a simple process. To consistently access the site, it’s suggested that visitors update bookmarks from www.amazon.com to www.smile.amazon.com. More information about the program is available at AmazonSmile.
