Amoeba Goes Global

Amoeba Goes Global

We donate a portion of our profits each year to the Rainforest Action Network.  To date we have helped save over 1,000,000 acres of tropical rainforest.  Please contact the Rainforest Action Network or another organization involved in helping to save our earth from selfish exploitation!

Rainforest Action Network (RAN) works to protect the Earth's rainforests and support the rights of their inhabitants through education, grassroots organizing, and non-violent direct action. RAN accomplishes its mission through dynamic, hard-hitting campaigns that work to bring corporate and governmental policies into alignment with popular support for rainforest conservation. RAN works in alliance with environmental and human rights groups around the world, including indigenous forest communities and non-governmental organizations in rainforest countries.

Amoeba Auctions

Amoeba Auctions

We are working closely to support and create awareness for the organizations mentioned above by raising funds through in-store donations, outside events and Saturday auctions. Amoeba Auctions happen at our Sunset store the first Saturday afternoon of the month at 4pm. Our host, Brently Heilbron, auctions everything from the wacky promotional item to rare collectables and autographed pieces. Over the last year, Amoeba Auctions raised $150,000 that went directly to help those affected by Hurricane Katrina. As of September, we are focusing on bringing in funds for those organizations listed above. Please come and join us- Amoeba will match all accepted individual bids up to $1,000!
