You may be one of the people in isolation having to use Amazon to get things you need. It is annoying when you would rather support smaller companies. However, there is a way you can get Amazon to stump up some cash for your favourite charity. Amazon have come over all charitable and started something called Smile Amazon. Here is how it works.When you want to buy something via Amazon instead of going to their normal page –  go to or use the ink belowChoose your charity – The Fred Foundation – just type in that name and you are set up.

You shop as normal but Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of your eligible purchases, to the charity.You can choose to download a preference which will always open up Smile Amazon. This helps you to remember to use the correct page. It takes 2 minutes to set up and if you remember to shop this way we will get some money. We appreciate it is a tiny amount but if all our supporters do it we may get a significant amount, and we are such a small charity that any money is useful!It is about time Amazon gave something away so please do remember to switch.The Fred Foundation page on Smile Amazon
