There are a lot of important ways to support Mercy Corps — from donations in the midst of an emergency to monthly givers who support our work all year long. But there are a lot of less obvious ways to support Mercy Corps that can add up to a whole lot — especially if all of our supporters get involved:
- Shop Amazon? Bookmark this link right now and use it every time you shop. We’ll receive 4% to 8.5% of the purchase price, depending on order volume.
- Shop Powells.com using this link and Mercy Corps will receive 7.5% of the purchase price.
- Cafegive allows you to purchase from a variety of online stores while donating a percentage of your purchase to support Mercy Corps’ work. Simply follow the instructions and choose Mercy Corps as your cause.
- Indonique Tea and Chai: 10% of every purchase of tea is donated to Mercy Corps to fund programs that positively impact the communities where their teas are picked.
- Coffee Bean International: Buy a pound of Cafe Aldea Nicaragua — a delicious single-origin coffee grown in the remote mountains of northern Nicaragua — and $2 will go to fund projects run by Mercy Corps' local partner.
- Purchase sustainable apparel from Rahzo and select Mercy Corps upon checkout to receive a donation for your purchase.
Share the links with family and friends. They can help the Mercy Corps mission just by remembering us as they shop. I can’t help but think if all Mercy Corps supporters did this, the impact could be huge.
**Updated: I forgot to mention our partnership with NAU. Nau.com is a key Mercy Corps supporter. From 11/30 through 12/06, Nau will offer customers 30% off merino wool and wool sweaters while directing 10% of sales to their Partners for Change, including Mercy Corps. The promo code is "GIVE".
Also Mercy Corps Action Center gift shop is a great place to buy holiday gifts (11 am - 5 pm, Tuesday - Saturday). Handmade fair-trade items (including items from Mercy Corps beneficiaries) include beaded jewelry and change-purses from Guatemala; recycled-tin cuff bracelets from India; and ornament-size, stuffed-animals - reindeer, camels and rams from Kyrgystan. A few autographed copies of Tracy Kidder's Strength in What Remains are still left! Check it out and visit Action Center exhibits at the same time.
