Buying gifts on Amazon? Amazon will make a donation to our charity every time you shop (at no cost to you)!

If you’re like many us, you have bought a thing or two from Amazon. Why not support ACT at the same time as doing your shopping on AmazonSmile instead by using this link to access the Amazon store: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/1145254-0.

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, they will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organisation of your choice. The donations can really add up and at zero cost to you! 

Please support the amazing work of Alchemy Charitable Trust (ACT) and make a real difference to local people facing exceptional need by shopping via our charity page on AmazonSmile

Most items are eligible for an Amazon Smile donation, but they will let you know is something is not. Shop as usual and watch as AmazonSmile's donations help support ACT's amazing work!

Automatically make ACT your charity of choice every time you shop:

Visit smile.amazon.com. Sign into your account if you’re not already, and search for Alchemy Charitable Trust as your charity of choice. Once you make this selection, you will receive an email confirmation. You are now ready to shop!

How to Shop Amazon Smile on Mobile

One of the drawbacks to AmazonSmile, is you have to make your purchases through the AmazonSmile site. Purchases through the regular Amazon site and their mobile site won’t give a donation. Fortunately, there’s a work around.

If you regularly shop Amazon through your mobile browser, simply navigate to smile.amazon.com instead and you’re set! It will be a very similar experience to what you are used to.

If you regularly shop Amazon through the Amazon app you could add items to your cart via the app but finish the checkout process on your browser (just make sure you are at smile.amazon.com). Or you could take these steps on your Apple device:

  • Visit smile.amazon.com in Safari.
  • Next, hit the share button at the bottom middle of your screen.
  • Now click add to Home Screen. You have just created a shortcut to the Amazon Smile page to easily navigate here from the homepage.
  • Finally, delete your existing Amazon App so you will always shop with a smile.
