Cyber Monday/Amazon Smile

November 25, 2019


Cyber Monday is everyone’s favorite digital shopping day. The websites are freshly stocked with great deals, and Amazon is no different.

More than 50% of all holiday shopping is done on Amazon. Let that sink in…..

You can make an impact on the Utica Zoo simply by shopping as you usually would by using AmazonSmile; Amazon’s charitable giving program. For every purchase made on qualifying Amazon.com purchases, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to the charitable organization of your choice. Guess what? The Utica Zoo is an option to be the charitable organization of your choice! It’s simple to set up:

-Visit smile.amazon.com




-Ensure your charitable organization is set to UTICA ZOOLOGICAL SOCIETY






-Shop like you normally would!
