What is it?

AmazonSmile is the same Amazon that you know. Same products, same prices, same service.

Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price of goods you buy (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible purchases to the charitable organisation of your choice each time you shop.

How to raise money for Age UK Solihull
