Donate for free automatically via AmazonSmile

Did you know that AmazonSmile is the charity arm of Amazon?

It looks the same as Amazon with identical products, prices and services. It’s just a slightly different website address. You can also tell by checking the Amazon logo on the top left hand of the screen. 

The only difference is that when you shop online at AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of all your eligible purchases to charity, at no cost to you (or to us). 

Supporters have raised around £1,000 (US$1,400) simply by nominating Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis on their AmazonSmile account.  That would help us produce four Coffee Break podcast episodes, reaching thousands of listeners around the world.

If you use Amazon, it only takes a minute to nominate us as your charity.

  1. Visit smile.amazon.com or smile.amazon.co.uk 

  1. Sign in with the same account you use for Amazon.com 

  1. Select Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis as your chosen charity
