How to support CHICKS on AmazonSmile

Share

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!

Choose your charity on smile.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.
