Donate to Charity when you shop on Amazon

Greetings all !! I recieved an email from Amazon which was a good reminder as i hadn’t mentioned the charity donation you can give automatically when you shop with Amazon.  I rotate my charity yearly, and have just changed to Dogs Trust,  which is a charity I love and already sponsor a dog with!

Amazon has donated over £1 million to date to various charities and it is satisfying to know that when you shop a small donation is going to your favourite cause.

The below content is taken from amazons website, and you can read more clicking the banner below which will take you to the Amazon Smile Page.
