Amazon Prime Day is upon us once again, with global retailer Amazon posting thousands of top deals over 2 days next week; Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th October 2020.
Whilst most people will use Prime Day as an early opportunity to complete their Christmas shopping (or to treat themselves to a post-lockdown treat), it is also your perfect chance to support a local charity of your choice through AmazonSmile.
What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is the ‘sister’ site of Amazon, that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on amazon.co.uk, but with one big difference.
When customers shop using the link: smile.amazon.co.uk, AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the shopper’s chosen charity – including Jessie May!
How do I get started with AmazonSmile?
Supporting Jessie May through AmazonSmile couldn’t be easier, all you have to do is follow these 5 easy steps:
- Go to: www.smile.amazon.co.uk
- Sign in with your normal Amazon account details
- Choose a charitable organisation to receive donations, or search for the charity of your choice
- Select your charity – *cough*…Jessie May
- Start shopping!
How does AmazonSmile benefit Jessie May?
Jessie May Nurses provide specialist hospice-at-home care for children and young people with a terminal or life-limiting condition. Our specialist palliative nursing is free to families, but Jessie May relies upon voluntary donations, and without your support, and the support of our AmazonSmile shoppers we could not provide this.
During lockdown AmazonSmile shoppers have raised well over £1,000 for Jessie May through eligible AmazonSmile purchases, with our total just shy of £4,000 since we joined the site in March 2018.
Help us to hit that £4k mark this Amazon Prime Day, by choosing Jessie May as your chosen charity on AmazonSmile, and help our Nurses to continue supporting families across the South West through every purchase.
Don’t use Amazon? You can still choose to support Jessie May this Prime Day by making a donation in kind right here on our website.
