Help Rescue Horses
With Your Holiday Shopping
Most of us have certainly heard of upgrades like Amazon Prime at this point. You may not be as familiar with the philanthropic arm of the company that does a lot more good. Amazon Smile is a site that donates 0.5% of an items purchase price to a charity of your choice. There is no extra charge to the consumer as the program simply takes advantage of the transactions already being conducted on their platform. Over 1 million charitable organizations have partnered with Amazon. The Equis Save Foundation launched its partnership this year making it easier for your donations to get where they are needed most.
How’s Amazon Smile Work?
It works exactly the same as with the main Amazon site you use for most purchases. The prices, products, and features are all the same. You simply link Equis Save Foundation or the organization of your choice as your charitable group during your normal daily shopping and that’s it! From there, one of the most profitable companies in the world will make continuous donations in accordance with your purchases. It really is that easy and the rewards will be so great for these vulnerable animals.
The holidays are approaching and online carts filling up quickly. This could mean a great deal of support for our rescue animals that need your help. We have made great strides in our fundraising efforts in 2018 through many generous contributions, but there is much more work to be done.
Our mandate is to ensure the protection and humane treatment of these companion animals. With dozens of horses saved from slaughter or neglect last year alone, we hope to build upon this in the coming years. This year we look forward to the inaugural season of the Horse Show Awards in eventing and dressage. With the launch of our new Rescue Recognition Program, 2019 will see more rescue horses participating and being given the recognition they deserve. This program will help create greater awareness for rescue horses and horse sanctuaries across the country. Moreover, it serves as a reminder that rescue horses have a continued purpose and are meant for more than the slaughterhouse.
