Did you know you that Amazon will donate directly to charity through your everyday purchases?
It’s easy and has no cost to you!
Here’s our helpful guide to get you started.
What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.co.uk. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organisation of your choice. The good news is shopping with AmazonSmile doesn’t cost you, or your chosen charity, any extra.
How do I register for AmazonSmile?
If you already have an Amazon account, you can begin shopping instantly. Simply visit smile.amazon.co.uk to get started.
Log in to your Amazon account and in the search bar to ‘pick your own charity’, search for ‘Diana Brinblecombe Animal Rescue Centre’ and select it
You’ll receive an email from Amazon and you’re ready to shop!
Shop as you normally would (always through smile.amazon.co.uk), knowing each purchase you make also makes a donation to DBARC. It may only be a small percentage but it will add up and if many sign up (or you shop a lot!), it will make a big difference!
How to use Smile on the Amazon app
The main thing to note with Amazon Smile is you always need to purchase your items through smile.amazon.co.uk rather than the main Amazon site. If you use the Amazon app we have a handy workaround:
Shop on the app as you would normally, adding items to your basket
Before you checkout, switch to smile.amazon.co.uk on your mobile browser to complete the process.
A suggestion if you use an Apple device:
Visit amazon.smile.co.uk in your Safari browser
Tap the share button and scroll right to select ‘add to Home Screen’
Click add and then delete your old Amazon app
