Smile for Jessie May this Black Friday

On Friday 29th November 2019 the UK will once again wake up and drive itself into a frenzy of spotlight deals, and pay-day bargains through Black Friday.

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday refers to the day after Thanksgiving, where most American families would head out to the shops and start their holiday shopping. It wasn’t until 2010, that retail giant, Amazon, introduced Black Friday to the UK, with a day of tantalizing discounts and deals.

Whilst most people will use Black Friday as an early opportunity to snap up their Christmas presents, it is also the perfect chance for you to support a local charity through AmazonSmile.

What is AmazonSmile?

AmazonSmile is a partner site of global retailer, Amazon, that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on amazon.co.uk.

The one big difference is that when customers shop through smile.amazon.co.uk, AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the chosen charity supported by the purchaser.

How does AmazonSmile benefit Jessie May?

A Jessie May Nurse costs £30,000 a year, and every penny we get through AmazonSmile helps our Jessie May Nurses to continue to support our children and families across the South West with a FREE at home care service. Our Jessie May Nurses provide:

  • Regular three-hour respite visits during which a Jessie May nurse takes over sole care of the terminally ill children, allowing parents and siblings a much-needed break
  • End of life care, highly intensive, specialist care at the end of a child’s life, to empower families to give their child the life and death they want for them in the comfort of their own home
  • Family support events, to reduce isolation and improve the quality of life for the whole family
  • Bereavement support is offered to parents from the moment a child is accepted onto the Jessie May caseload, we provide emotional support alongside respite visits and our bereavement support continues for up to five years after a child has died.

Help us to fund a Jessie May Nurse today, by choosing Jessie May as your chosen charity on AmazonSmile, and help us to continue supporting families across the South West through every purchase.
