Shop on Amazon Smile and Virunga Benefits!


We have a great new way for you to help the rangers protect Virunga’s mountain gorillas and other wildlife and it’s called Amazon Smile.

Amazon Smile is the charity run by that donates 0.5% of every purchase to the registered charity of your choice. It’s Amazon’s way of giving back and it’s a wonderful way to help Virunga. Because the prices on Amazon Smile are exactly the same as the regular site, there is no added charge to help Virunga. So, next time you’re about to shop on Amazon, please take a minute to sign up for Amazon Smile. Doing so will ensure your every purchase supports the efforts of Virunga’s rangers to protect the park.

Here is how to sign up:

  1. Go to
  2. Register or sign up using the same username and password you use when signing up to the regular Amazon website.
  3. Choose Virunga Fund Inc as one of your spotlight charities
  4. When you start shopping, you will notice it now says “Supporting: Virunga Fund Inc” below the search bar.
  5. When you place your order and proceed to check out, you should see the same “Supporting: Virunga Fund Inc” under the Order Total.
  6. You have now donated 0.5% of your purchase to Virunga National Park!
  7. When shopping on Amazon in the future, you can either go straight to the site or access Amazon Smile through the regular site by entering “Amazon Smile” in their search field.

You shop, Amazon gives. Thanks for your ongoing support!

    I have done so but it seems this will only work for the US?
    When I go to or I don’t see how to include the ‘smile’ version?
