If you’ve ever visited the Mono Lake Committee Information Center & Bookstore in person, then you know our location is quite remote. As a result, mail shipped from the Mono Lake Committee isn’t as speedy as mail from, say, Los Angeles or the Bay Area. Add in the possibility of winter storms and delayed travel, and you’ll understand how the term “snail mail” came to be.

We want to make sure you get your Mono Lake Committee gifts by Christmas—therefore, we are now sending out our last call for shipping. Place your orders by Wednesday, December 16 to ensure that they reach you by Christmas using standard shipping. Place your orders by Friday, December 18 and select expedited shipping if you’re placing a last-minute order (added charges will apply). And once again, thank you so much for your support!

Amazon for Mono Lake exceeds last year’s goal

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015 by Elin, Communications Coordinator

Last year, Mono Lake Committee members and friends raised $2,700 for Mono Lake just by clicking on a link. You used that link to access Amazon to do your shopping, and 5% of those sales came back to the Committee. The amount raised last year was the most since we started the Amazon program, and exceeded our goal of $2,500 by 10%!

The Amazon program has been earning us steadily increasing amounts—$2,700 in 2014, $1,380 in 2013, $890 in 2012, $450 in 2011—and we’re hoping to raise even more this year. How much do you think we can raise for Mono Lake in 2015?

We’re grateful for every penny from this effective program, and we’re putting the proceeds to hard work for Mono Lake. Please bookmark the link and spread the word to your friends and family—with 5% of the purchases of just a fraction of our 16,000 Mono Lake Committee members, imagine what we could do.
