Amazon.Smile : donate while you shop!

Did you know your everyday purchases can help find a cure for all with CGD?  We’re delighted that CGD Society are part of Amazon Smile's charity list. This means your everyday purchases could help us protect the services & programmes we offer at CCGDS, all the way driving towards our ultimate goal - a cure for all with CGD.


But what is Smile and how does AmazonSmile work?

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices and shopping features. Your shopping experience stays the same, but every time you shop on AmazonSmile, Amazon donates to your chosen charity.

How much does AmazonSmile donate?

Amazon automatically donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to your chosen charity when you shop on smile.amazon.co.uk. The good news is shopping with AmazonSmile doesn’t cost you, or your chosen charity, any extra.

How do I get Amazon smile?

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 search for The Chronic Granulomatous Disorder Society in the ‘pick your own charity’ search bar
  • Select The Chronic Granulomatous Disorder Society
  • You’ll receive an email from Amazon and you’re ready to shop
  • Shop as you normally would, knowing each purchase you make protects the services we offer and works towards a cure for all with CGD
  • Why not add a bookmark for smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile.


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.

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.

 

Whatever route you choose to use - website or app - every purchase you make also makes a donation to work and services here for us at The CGD Society.  From our clinical nurse Helen to our helpline, from our website to our research - every donation goes towards providing services for our CGD community.

So from us here to you shopping online - thank you! It's retail therapy with a huge charitable impact.
