Your Amazon shop will help us to transform lives!
Posted 10 months ago in the A big thank you category
Canine Partners has joined the Amazon Smile programme which donates a percentage of your Amazon shop to your chosen charity.
Do you regularly shop on Amazon? Whether you’re buying dog food, books, the latest technology or indeed anything else that Amazon sells, your order could help to transform the lives of people with disabilities.
Amazon Smile is an initiative by Amazon that lets you donate a percentage of your purchase to a charitable cause – and now you can select Canine Partners as your chosen charity!
How does Amazon Smile work?
When you sign up to shop through Amazon Smile, you can pick a charity for your donation to go to. Amazon will then donate 0.5% of the purchase price (excluding VAT, returns or shipping fees) for eligible purchases to that charity at no extra cost to you. It may seem like a small percentage, but it soon adds up if lots of our supporters get involved!
Amazon Smile is exactly the same as the Amazon you already use – the exact same products, prices and service. All you need to do is make the switch from shopping via amazon.co.uk and shop at smile.amazon.co.uk.
In fact, when you’ve signed up to Amazon Smile and you are logged in to your usual Amazon account, you will receive a prompt onscreen asking if you wish to switch to Amazon Smile.
Not every product will be eligible for Amazon Smile, so keep an eye out on the product pages for your favourite items to see if it has a message that says: “Eligible for smile.amazon.co.uk”
How can I sign up for Amazon Smile?
Signing up for Amazon Smile is easy. All you need to do is go to smile.amazon.co.uk and follow the instructions. You will need an existing Amazon account to sign up for Amazon Smile.
When registering for Amazon Smile, you will be asked to choose the charitable organisation you wish for the donations to go to. To find us, search for Canine Partners for Independence. You will need to do this before shopping, as you cannot claim Amazon Smile donations on previous orders.
Are you already signed up for Amazon Smile and have chosen another charity? If you wish to Canine Partners, you can log in to your Amazon Smile account and change the charity at any time. Any future orders you make will then have the percentage donated to us.
