As you may or may not have seen us announce late last year, you can now support CHICKS when shopping online using the AmazonSmile programme!
AmazonSmile is essentially the exact same website as Amazon.co.uk, except on a wide range of products you can donate to a chosen charity for no extra cost.
Today, we wanted to give you a brief step-by-step guide on how to support CHICKS on AmazonSmile – one of the easiest ways to help more children in the UK!
Supporting CHICKS on AmazonSmile is very simple: all you have to do is sign up and shop at smile.amazon.co.uk, instead of the normal amazon.co.uk.
You can either find us on the AmazonSmile platform by searching following the steps below, or click our direct link here to start supporting us right away.
Step 1: Log into smile.amazon.co.uk with your normal amazon.co.uk login details
Step 2: Search for CHICKS and select us from the list of search results
Step 3: That's it! Start shopping on Amazon and helping CHICKS!
Once you've selected your charity, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of any qualifying purchase you make on smile.amazon.co.uk to your choice at no extra cost to you.
Worried you'll forget to shop at smile.amazon.co.uk in the future?
Smilematic by CouponFollow is a browser extension built specifically for the purpose of redirecting you to AmazonSmile when you're on the regular website. It is available on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari browsers.
Want to shop on AmazonSmile using your Android smartphone or tablet?
Amazon have added the ability to select AmazonSmile from their shopping app, so it's as simple as switching it on! They've also produced a handy step-by-step guide for enabling the option on your Amazon app. Click here to find out how to do it.

Step 1: Visit smile.amazon.co.uk on your Safari browser
Step 2: Tap the share button at the bottom of your screen
