Amazon Smile Ending (But We Still Have iGive)

As many of our supporters probably know, Amazon is shutting down Amazon Smile as of February 20th, 2023. NY Wildlife Rescue has benefited from your kindness through Amazon Smile for quite a few years. We’re dismayed to see this source of donations end. Despite letters, calls, and petitions from the millions of people worldwide who have used the Amazon Smile to help their favorite charities, Amazon is ending the program. According to various news sources, the reason for this is to cut their costs.

What our supporters may not be aware of, however, is that NYWRC is also signed up with IGive collects donations from a huge number of shopping sites around the internet, including sites like Walmart’s online store and good old (that peanut butter box helps wildlife, too). To join iGive, all you have to do is sign up at the following link. Then, if you want to get the most out of the program, you can install their extension in your browser (instructions will be available when you sign up).

Here’s our iGive link:

The process is easy, painless, and there is no cost to you. The merchants you shop with make the donations for you! Plus, if you sign up today and make a purchase within 30 days, iGive will donate an additional $5 for every new member.

We will miss Amazon Smile’s help, but all is not lost!

Thank you all for your continued support of New York Wildlife Rescue Center.

and all your friends at NELR/NYWRC
