Thanks to customers shopping at or using the Amazon app with AmazonSmile ON, everyday purchases make an impact. So far, AmazonSmile has donated:

Thank you to everyone who has joined Amazon Smile and selected Phoenix Rising An Neid Corporation as the beneficiary. As a reminder, this program costs you nothing and is a great way to support PR. Our contributions from Amazon Smile have increased over the years but have begun to plateau at around $235. My personal goal is for PR to average about $250 per quarter. The number $4,335.07 is a total received by PR since enrollment in the Amazon Smile program, annually we actually bring in less than $1,000 from this program, but these quarterly checks still make a big difference for our operations budget.

Thank you @ljimbo423 for enrolling with Amazon Smile and selecting PR as the beneficiary, and for making this post that gives me the opportunity to encourage others to enroll to support PR!

Prior to the pandemic, I eschewed Amazon, but that was easy to do when I had family willing and able to go to brick and mortar stores for me.

But times change, family circumstances change, and when the COVID-19 pandemic began, suddenly I had to begin aquiring necessities on my own (while being house bound).

Enrolling in Amazon Smile made it more palatable, to me, to use Amazon, and I'm proud to be able to contribute to Phoenix Rising in this very small way.

I want to assure folks that Amazon Smile is the *exact* same platform as Amazon.

You'll find that some items are eligible for contributions and some are not, but if you already use Amazon to purchase stuff or groceries, why not take advantage of Amazon Smile having to make a small contribution to the charity of your choice?

It will take you less than 10 minutes to adjust your bookmark, log-on, and select Phoenix Rising as the charity of your choice.

Together we can meet the goal that @Diwi9 mentioned above.

I know they rule....I wouldn't dare argue the fact. We had a black cat ourselves once many years ago. Unfortunately, she was a nasty business but seemed to enjoy terrorizing us, especially Rod.

I'll pay closer attention to those avatars in the future. Best wishes for 2022 for you, your families, cats, dogs and whatever else is a part of your life. PR is a fine group and everyone deserves better health. Hope this is the year. Yours, Lenora.
