Amazon is an online shopping site which many of use on a regular basis, but did you know about their charitable sister-site, AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support Rainbow Trust every time you shop, and at no cost to you!
When you shop at AmazonSmile, you’ll find the exact same prices, selection and shopping experience as Amazon.co.uk, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price directly to Rainbow Trust, allowing you to support families with seriously ill children whilst undertaking your usual shopping.
How do I shop at AmazonSmile?
Simply go to smile.amazon.co.uk and select Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity as your chosen charity to support.
Your usual Amazon log-in information and settings remain the same.
Products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages mean a portion of the selling price will be donated to us.
How do I select to support Rainbow Trust when shopping on AmazonSmile?
When you first sign in to your AmazonSmile account, you will be prompted to select the charity you wish to support.
Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity can be entered in to the search bar, then click ‘select’ to choose us.
You will see a Thank You message confirming your selection.
Shopping via the Amazon App?
Although you can’t currently use AmazonSmile on the Amazon app, it is simple to shop on-the-go and still support Rainbow Trust.
Simply save the AmazonSmile check out page as a bookmark on your device’s home screen. You can then use the app as normal, and once you’re ready to check out, just open the AmazonSmile bookmark where your basket will be waiting.
So sign-up today and help us to support even more families, simply by doing your shopping!
