You shop, Amazon gives

14 December 2020

Are you an Amazon shopper?

Did you know that Amazon’s charitable giving program ‘Amazon Smile’ donates 0.5% of all Amazon purchases made via the special Amazon Smile link to a charity of your choice?

Well, now that you know, why not consider choosing 1st Chineham Scout Group for your shopping?

Amazon Smile is a simple way for you to support 1st Chineham every time you shop – at zero cost to you.  

1st Chineham Scout Group Amazon Smile

All you have to do is shop as normal via smile.amazon.co.uk instead of amazon.co.uk whenever you shop.

How do I get started?

https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/1048634-0

Follow the link above to start shopping with Amazon Smile and select 1st Chineham Scout Group to receive donations from eligible purchases. Amazon will remember your selection, although you can change it whenever you like. Every eligible purchase thereafter made via smile.amazon.co.uk thereafter will result in a donation. 

Is there any cost to charitable organisations or to Amazon customers?

No. There is no cost to charitable organisations or to Amazon customers. The shopping experience is identical to amazon.co.uk with the added benefit that Amazon will donate to the charitable organisations selected by customers.

Does Amazon charge any administrative fees or take any deduction from the donation amount?

No. Charities must enrol to receive donations and have a valid bank account to which they receive donations, but there is no charge to participate and no fees are deducted from the donation amount.

Are prices higher on Amazon Smile?

Absolutely not! You’ll be able to shop the same products, at the same prices. It doesn’t cost you a penny more.

Happy shopping and thank you for your donation and support.
