#4 Amazon Smile
One way that you all can help out with our ongoing fundraising goal is to sign up for the Amazon Smile charity donation program. All this does it take your existing amazon account (prime, or normal), and donates 0.5% of all eligible purchases to the charity of your choice (of which Mercer is an option).
All you have to do is go to and on your first time it should ask you to pick a charity. If you type in Mercer Veterinary Clinic into the search bar it should come right up. If you are already donating to another charity through AmazonSmile and would like to switch to Mercer, you can go to My Account-->Change your Charity.
The main thing to remember is that when making your purchases you want to sign into/go through instead of just
#5 Nugget Market SCRIP Card
