Amazon Smile

There’s a new way to donate to CW Mind while shopping online – at no extra cost to yourself.

Amazon gives you a chance to donate while you shop with a charity scheme called AmazonSmile. Through AmazonSmile, Amazon will automatically donate 0.5% of the net purchase price, excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees.

Simply choose Coventry and Warwickshire Mind and this money will automatically go to us.

It won’t cost you any extra and every penny will help us deliver quality mental health services to people of all ages across Coventry and Warwickshire.

For the donation to apply, you must always start your Amazon shopping at:

smile.amazon.co.uk/

The same ranges of products are available to buy as on Amazon and it’s a great and easy way to give to us this festive season.

What do I need to do?

It’s simple, takes a few seconds and will help make a difference to local people who turn to us for mental health support.

Step 1: Visit smile.amazon.co.uk/

Step 2: Type in the ‘charity to support box’ Coventry and Warwickshire Mind

Step 3: Read the terms and conditions and click the ‘I understand’ box.

What’s AmazonSmile?

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.
