Donate with Online Shopping!
Did you know that when you shop online, there are merchants who will donate a percentage of your purchase to charities like ours? It is probably one of the easiest ways to donate once everything is setup (and setup is a breeze!). There are currently two options that offer a passive way to donate and help the kitties, listed below.
iGive is a great way to shop at many online stores and have a percentage donated back to us. To set this up:
Click on the iGive image to sign-up. Paws and Love should be pre-selected as the charity, but if it is not, then search for Paws and Love in Washington, NC (that's us!).
Once that is done, the next step depends on whether you're using a mobile device or a computer:
If computer - Install the iGive button for your internet browser. This tracks your purchases made through participating retailers (Chewy is one of them!). Then, whenever you visit a participating retailer's website, it will show the percentage that retailer will donate back to the charity of your choice! You can search on iGive.com to find participating retailers, or if you use the Google search engine, the iGive flower logo will appear next to the website to let you know they participate. We'll then be receiving money every time you shop an iGive partner!
If mobile device - Install the iGive app for your device. Whenever you need to do online shopping, use the iGive app to search participating retailers and click the link that then opens the retailer's website. This will begin tracking your order so a donation can be sent back to us!
**If you shop through Chewy, then iGive is a must! Chewy gives back 2.4% when you use iGive, which is more than many other sites. However, please note that if you use auto-ship, only the first order will provide a donation to us. To make each order count, you will need to create a new order each time.
Do you enjoy shopping on Amazon? Have you been using Amazon Smile when you shop? If not, you should be!
It's essentially the same website as Amazon, except all eligible purchases made through Amazon Smile will give 0.5% to us.
To get started, click the banner, login, and then select Paws and Love in Washington, NC as your charity. Then every time you need to purchase something on Amazon, make sure you go to smile.amazon.com so that a donation will be made to us! It's that easy!
