Make your holiday shopping dollar help support the Friends of Ellen Trout Zoo. 

If you are like me, the Ellen Trout Zoo has been a part of your life for a long time. Think of all the great days you spent there. Now when you're doing your holiday shopping using Amazon you can help them at no charge to you. Apparently you can do this anytime you log into Amazon to make a purchase, not just the holidays.

You shop. Amazon gives.

  • Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice.
  • AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service.
  • Support your charitable organization by starting your shopping at

Just click this link, before you do any shopping, and you can support Ellen Trout Zoo. Keep it up, and do it every time, and a portion of your purchases will be donated locally to Ellen Trout Zoo. If you are like me and Amazon is the only way you can get certain products, and you are going to shop there anyway, might as well throw them some free money!

Help them celebrate 50 years, and remember it all started with a hippo!
