Do you shop? Do you like helping animals? Well, thanks to these compassionate programs (and others on the PETA Mall website), you can do both at the same time! From your Amazon shopping cart to your credit card, here are 11 shockingly easy ways to help animals while you shop:
If you’re looking for a way to help animals from the comfort of your couch, check out AmazonSmile. Amazon will donate 0.5 percent of the price of eligible purchases each time you shop. Log in to AmazonSmile with your normal Amazon log-in info, select PETA as your charity, and shop ’til you drop.
Check out PETA’s Amazon wish list, which is full of items that we need to help animals. From leashes to treats, you pick the items that you want to donate and check out, then Amazon sends the gifts to PETA, where they’ll certainly be put to good use.
Get rid of some clutter and help animals at the same time. Round up the items that you’d like to donate, then list them here. (Don’t forget to select PETA as your charity!) And if you’re looking for deals, don’t forget to see what other people are listing.
With eBay for Charity, you can donate proceeds from your sales ranging from 10 to 100 percent. Simply select PETA as your charity and start selling for animals.
Is PayPal your trusted way of spending money online? We’ve got you covered. With PETA’s PayPal Giving Fund account, you can make sure that 100 percent of your donation supports animals.
6. PETA Visa
If you’re thinking about a new credit card, consider applying for a PETA Visa card! A percentage of all purchases goes toward our lifesaving work, and if you use the card within 90 days of approval, an additional $ 60 is donated.
7. Caring Cent
Help animals with every purchase! When you pay with a credit or debit card, Caring Cent will round up your purchase amount to the nearest dollar and donate the difference to PETA.
Like video games? Like helping animals? Now, you can enjoy both at the same time. Visit Humble Bundle, select PETA as your charity, and you’re good to go. Even better, you get to set your own price!
TisBest allows you to buy gift cards for your friends and family (or even yourself) that can be spent on the charity of your choice—and PETA, of course, is an option.
10. Walk for a Dog
Download the WoofTrax “Walk for a Dog” application to your smartphone, and when choosing what cause to walk for, select PETA (listed as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). The next time that you and your canine companion go for a walk to your neighborhood shops, just click the “Start Walking for …” button and the app will keep track of the walk for you. Once you’re finished, it’ll donate to PETA for each step you took.
11. PETA Checks
Choose from unique check designs created especially for PETA!
