Okay, sorry for the wait, but we can report that at present, the amount donated is helpful, but not significant - at least not yet. But, we can change that - if more of us spread the word to friends and family members, asking them to shop with AmazonSmile, and designate the PMCA as their charity of choice. If we work to grow the number of people who shop through AmazonSmile, we can grow the donations. Thanks, everyone - shop on!

It's easy to do, log in to smile.amazon.com and choose (type in) Purple Martin Conservation Association as charity you wish to benefit.

If you log into Amazon the usual way, you cannot have Amazon contribute to the PMCA on your behalf.

[The PMCA is now registered as an AmazonSmile charity, so if you log in through AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate to the PMCA each time you shop.

We appreciate the help, shoppers and Amazon -thank you!]

Everything you put in your cart with Amazon or Amazon Smile all become items qualified for donations if we use the Amazon smile checkout.
All items are automatically placed in one cart.


This has worked for me after forgetting to start with Amazon Smile instead of Amazon.

Just wanted to remind everyone that orders merchandise on line, if you can, place your orders with AMAZON SMILE.
AMAZON SMILE Will donate in dollars .05% of that order to the PMCA. Every penny adds up to help these birds we all love.

I signed my wife and I up for this. I generally leave before her in the morning and get home about 45 minutes later then her. During my brief work at home period in March we had UPS, FedEx and the USPS coming here at least every other day. I was shocked to say the least. Apparently my wife will contribute quite a bit to PMCA!
