Use Goodsearch, Goodswipe, and Goodshop to Give Back!

By Shannon Sullivan

Supporting Amazon CARES has never been easier. With Goodsearch.com you can support our charity just by doing the things you already do, such as searching the internet, shopping online, and using your debit or credit card in your own town. With the holiday season fast approaching, now is a wonderful time to get signed up with Goodsearch and start giving back!

There are three easy ways to support Amazon CARES using Goodsearch.

1. Use Goodsearch.com as your search engine.

Goodsearch is a wonderful tool that allows supporters, like you, to donate to a charity without spending a dime. Goodsearch is a search engine powered by Yahoo. Every time you use Goodsearch about one penny is donated to Amazon CARES. It may not seem like much, but pennies can add up quickly! If only 1,000 of Amazon CARES’ supporters use Goodsearch twice a day, $7,300 in donations can be earned every year.

Using Goodsearch is simple! Go to www.goodsearch.com and you’ll be asked to choose your cause. Select Amazon CARES, then get searching and watch as the pennies add up! Goodsearch keeps a running total of how much money your internet searches earn for Amazon CARES. Remember to bookmark the Goodsearch page! You can also download a Goodsearch toolbar by clicking here!

2. Use Goodswipe when shopping at your favorite retailers.  

Goodswipe is a new program offered by Goodsearch where you can support Amazon CARES simply by making the purchases you already make with your debit or credit card. Over 50,000 locations nationwide are part of the Goodswipe program. When you make purchases at retailers such as Staples, GAP, Quiznos, Regal Cinemas, and Sears among many others, you can earn up to 3% of your purchase for Amazon CARES. Visit the Goodswipe website for more information and to find out which of your favorite retailers are part of the program.

3. Use Goodshop when shopping online.

You can also earn money for Amazon CARES by shopping online. Goodshop offers coupons and other deals at your favorite online retailers. When you use the Goodshop tool, or shop with participating retailers, a percentage of your purchase is automatically donated to Amazon CARES. By using Goodshop for your online holiday shopping you can get great deals online and support Amazon CARES at the same time!

This fall Goodshop is willing to donate even more to our cause. From November 1 until December 31 for every supporter who downloads the Goodshop To-Go button and shops using the button, $5 will be donated to Amazon CARES. So download the Goodshop To-Go button today and get shopping!

Visit the Goodsearch Frequently Asked Questions page for more information about how you can use these tools to benefit Amazon CARES.

Thank you for supporting Amazon CARES! Without your support we would be unable to help the animals of Peru's Amazon Rainforest.

October: Sponsor A Shelter Dog Month

By Shannon Sullivan


October is Adopt A Shelter Dog Month, but because most of our supporters are unable to adopt a dog from the jungles of Peru, we'll be observing Sponsor A Shelter Dog Month. Amazon CARES operates the first, and only, no-kill dog shelter in Peru's Amazon River Basin. Our shelter may be home to up to forty dogs at a time while they are waiting for their forever homes.

While in our care shelter dogs receive not only food, love, and shelter, but also treatment for internal and external parasites, vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. Caring for these dogs does come at a cost, however.

 
Sam
- $55 provides a dog with a month's worth of food and treatment for worms, fleas, and scabies


- $15 provides a dog with vaccinations


- $85 covers the cost of a dog spay (for female dogs)


- $35 covers the cost of a dog neuter (for male dogs)





You can sponsor a shelter dog today! Please visit our Facebook page for an entire photo album of shelter dogs and their stories. (No need to be a Facebook member to view the album.) Visit our Crowdrise fundraising page to sponsor a dog today! Simply make a donation
in one of our shelter dogs' names and the funds will go directly toward his or her care. Even though you may not be able to offer one of these sweet dogs a forever home, you can help improve their lives by sponsoring one of them today!
