This fall, we want to call attention to FOUR super simple ways that you can help kids connect to nature by supporting ECO's hands-on ecology programs.
The Give!Guide. We are beyond thrilled to announce that ECO will again be included in this year's Give!Guide. As you may know, Portland's weekly paper, The Willamette Week, annually operates the Give!Guide. Each year the Give!Guide highlights about 130 of Portland's hard-working nonprofits, and makes it easy for readers to donate to their favorite nonprofits online. The Give!Guide goes live on Nov 5. And don't worry - we'll remind you. :)
The Buffalo Exchange. The Buffalo Exchange on Hawthorne is a Portland institution. Selling new and recycled fashions, The Buffalo Exchange has got the coolest fashion in town. From July through December, whenever a customer brings in their own bag, The Buffalo Exchange will make a donation to ECO. So fantastic.
Fred Meyer Community Rewards. Fred Meyer is the store that has everything. Now, they also make donations to ECO. It's easy. You already have a Fred Meyer Reward card, right? Just about all of us do. You can choose ECO as the nonprofit you choose to support (click here to do that - it's super quick), and then whenever you use your reward card, Freddy's will donate to ECO. Simple!
Amazon Smile. We all use Amazon. Amazon Smile is Amazon-that-cares. Just like the Fred Meyer Community Rewards program, you choose a nonprofit you'd like Amazon to donate to (choose ECO, right?). Then, when you're ready to buy something on Amazon, type Amazon Smile into the search bar and you'll be automatically redirected to the Smile branch of the Amazon company. The website looks the same, the goods are the same, but when you buy through Amazon Smile you know that Amazon is making a donation to ECO. Easy!
Of course, there's always the good old option of donating online to support ECO.
With the contributions of fabulous supporters like you, ECO is bringing hands-on nature lessons and activities to young students throughout the greater Portland Metro Region. Thank you so much for making that possible!
