TODAY ONLY: Shop Amazon, They’ll Donate $5 to Potcake Rescue Program

An update to my recent post about the plight of the Bahamian potcake

If you’re shopping on Amazon today, please do so via this link to AmazonSmile. If you do, Amazon will automatically donate $5 to Royal Potcake Rescue USA, at no cost to you.

I hadn’t heard of AmazonSmile before now, but it’s a great program that lets you to support your favourite charity while you shop You get access to Amazon’s normal selection, prices and shopping experience, but Amazon donates 0.5% of your purchase price to the charity of your choice. What could be easier?

A percentage of your sales will be donated to Royal Potcake Rescue any time you shop through AmazonSmile.

As an added bonus just for today, however, Amazon will contribute $5 per purchase to RPR. You get stuff you were going to buy anyway, and the potcake rescue program gets $5. It’s a real win-win.

A reminder also that there are only 4 days left to donate to the Indiegogo online fundraiser supporting the upcoming potcake spay/neuter clinic in Marsh Harbour, Abaco. If you can contribute – even if it’s just a few dollars – please do!

P.S. Both the pups pictured in this post are available for adoption through Royal Potcake Rescue.

    Amanda –

    Because there was not currently anything on my Amazon “wish list” I opted to make a donation tonight directly to RPR, through their Indiegogo link, for the upcoming clinic. Please let people know that if they opt to receive a t-shirt as a thank you gift, via that link, there is NOWHERE in the donation process I found to designate the style or size t-shirt. I sent Judy and crew a message to that effect but don’t want others to have the same problem. I sincerely hope I just wasn’t catching all the bells, whistles, necessary clicks, etc. to make my choice.

    Looks like they are struggling, as usual, to fund this clinic. I appreciate your efforts to get the word out there and really hope people step up to help in the next couple of days.

    Look forward to seeing you, Tom and Wrigley and Fish Hooks on the Rock in the future –
