A little story about how Amazon Wish List really does make a difference…
Our charity has greatly benefited from the use of Amazon’s wish list, particularly in the realisation of our dream of having an on-site veterinary clinic – Whitefield Vets.
We were awarded a £50k grant from Support Adoption for Pets, which allowed us to build the clinic. However, the cost of the necessary equipment was far beyond the amount of the donation.
Fortunately, we discovered Amazon’s wish list, which proved to be an amazing tool for fundraising.
We created a list of veterinary equipment we needed, ranging from small items like scissors and operating tools, which cost only a few pounds, to big items like operating tables, which cost around £1000 each.
We shared the list on social media, and the response was overwhelming.
Within weeks, we received everything on our wish list and even more! We were amazed at the support we received and the generosity of people who donated items rather than cash. It demonstrated that creating a list of specific items that we needed made a significant difference in achieving our goal of providing the best possible care for our animals.
As a small and transparent charity, we want to give our supporters the confidence that their donation will be put towards the care of our animals, which is our top priority.
Whenever we need specific items quickly, we share our wishlist on social media and ask for support. So, keep an eye out for our special appeals and please share them with your friends and family.
We appreciate every donation and want to remind everyone that even the smallest contribution can make a difference to our cause. Thank you for supporting our charity and helping us make a positive impact on the lives of our animals.
