Good News from Amazon Smile

This is Amazon Smile’s biggest bonus donation to date — 5% for 5 days.

From Oct 29 – Nov 2, AmazonSmile is donating 5%, ten times its usual rate, on all eligible purchases.

The Staten Island Zoological Society is proud to continue its relationship with the Amazon Smile charitable program. By choosing the Staten Island Zoological Society as your charitable recipient on, Amazon will donate a half of one percent of your purchases to the Staten Island Zoo.  

For this limited time AmazonSmile is increasing its donation rate to 5%. This doesn’t cost the consumer any additional money: Amazon makes the donation, not the consumer.
