Whooo Loves our Volunteers?
It takes a small army of site volunteers to keep Splitcoast running smoothly, and each November and December we give you an opportunity to express your appreciation to those who give so much to the community.
It's time for our annual Moddy Christmas gift to Splitcoast moderators and group leaders, and it's very easy to participate.
There are all kinds of behind the scenes jobs here at Splitcoast, and our moderators and group leaders are here every day, working hard to answer emails and Private Messages, to approve and take care of our group memberships, to keep the gallery and forums organized, and to make Splitcoast run smoothly for all of you. They do not get a lot of recognition, but the truth is that we couldn't run the site without them.
Many people buy online during the holidays, and no one is bigger than Amazon.com. Splitcoast is part of the Amazon Associates program, where we benefit from every Amazon purchase made in the name of Splitcoaststampers. So what we do is take all the proceeds from these holiday sales and give them to our moderators and group leaders, in the form of Amazon gift certificates.
You can give the mods a Merry Christmas!
Would you like to participate? It couldn't be simpler, just two quick steps.
1. Click the cute owl image above.
Clicking it will forward you to the Amazon site. Everything will look normal but don't worry, Amazon will recognize that you've come from Splitcoast.
2. Shop as normal, and complete your purchase.
For any purchase you make in the 24-hour period after you clicked the link, Amazon will pay us a referral fee. We split up the proceeds between all the moderators and group leaders as a special thank you from the rest of the Splitcoast community.
That's it and there's nothing else to do! Just follow a link from Splitcoast to Amazon, shop as normal, and a percentage of your purchase will go toward our Moddy Christmas gift. Stay tuned to the home page for updates all through the holidays.
What, you're still here? It really is as easy as clicking the Amazon link, but here's some more info that may answer any questions you still have.
There's no requirement that you be logged in to participate, or even that you be a Splitcoast member, just that you access Amazon through the link on our site. Any purchases you make will be credited to us, and gifted 100% to our moderators.
But I already bought something (yesterday | last week)!
If you followed the Amazon link from Splitcoast it'll get credited. If you didn't, unfortunately it cannot be credited unless you followed our link :( We'll count all Amazon purchases made from November 1 through December 31 to the Moddy Christmas effort.
Thank you, mods!
Our forum and gallery moderators spend countless hours here, helping make the community a better place. Leaders of the many groups answer innumerable inquiries and pleas for help. Thank you to all our mods!
If you'd like to make a direct gift in any amount, you can do that too. Your gift will be added to the referral fees we earn from Amazon, and gifted to the mods. Click the link to get started.

For our Canadian buds
For Amazon Canada, use this link to make your purchases:
No, this doesn't look like an Amazon link. But the one they gave us is so long that we've used TinyURL, a service that makes long addresses more usable. Use or share this link and you'll be jumped right to Amazon.ca.

To tell someone else about Moddy Christmas, copy and paste this link:
A little more complicated, but worth it
There's also a way that you can make your purchase go even further. To increase the portion of your purchase that comes back to Splitcoast, you can follow an alternate set of instructions. It's more steps and a little more difficult, but it increases the percentage that comes back to us:
1. Find a product you want on Amazon.
2. Look on the page and find the ASIN#.
(this number can be found directly below the product listing, included with the shipping and sales rank information, and usually looks something like this: B000B6MLUA)
3. Plug that number into this address link:
(take out the x's in the address below and put the ASIN# in their place)
4. Reload the Amazon page using this new address, and complete your purchase.
By using this direct link, Splitcoast gets a higher percentage cut than using the standard link from the home page.
Thank you for helping us spread holiday cheer to our beloved volunteers!
