Smile for Shooting Star Chase with Amazon Smile

Will you give us a smile with Amazon Smile? If you shop on Amazon then every time you checkout you could be helping us to support children with life-limiting conditions and their families. And it won’t cost you a penny!

How does Amazon Smile work?

Amazon smile - you shop. Amazon gives

It’s Amazon’s way of donating to the causes their customers care about, like Shooting Star Chase.  When you shop via the dedicated Smile website, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the cost of your purchases to your nominated charity. It’s no different from shopping on the regular Amazon site. You’ll pay the same prices and enjoy the same benefits (for example if you’re signed up to their Prime service). However, you must checkout via the Amazon Smile website for us to receive a donation.

How do I choose Shooting Star Chase as my Charity?

You can select us as your charity on the Amazon Smile by clicking here once you are logged into Amazon.  You can also click on ‘Your Account’ and then ‘Change Your Charity’ and then in the search box type ‘Shooting Star Chase’

Once you’ve selected us you’ll see the following message.

Then you are all ready to go.

Shopping via Desktop

Once you’ve selected us, just remember to use the dedicated website and shop as normal – remember to bookmark the page, as you must check out on the Amazon Smile website for us to get the donation. Your basket will be the same on both Amazon’s regular site and their Smile site. Already started shopping? Don’t worry, you can just switch over to the Amazon Smile site before checkout without having to start again.

Shopping via the Amazon App on mobile or tablet

You can’t currently use Smile on the Amazon app, so the easiest thing to do is to save the Amazon Smile check out page as a bookmark on your homescreen.  Then you can use the app as normal. Once you’re ready to check out just open the bookmark, where your Amazon basket will be waiting.

Thanks for supporting us by using Amazon Smile, and helping us to keep supported children and their families smiling through tough times.
