How to make the most of your online shopping

24 November 2021

There are lots of ways to donate to Crohn's & Colitis UK, so that we can continue out vital work improving the lives of people affected by Crohn's and Colitis.

Our corporate partnerships officer, Natasha, tells us all the ways that you can donate while you shop, with no extra cost to you.

It’s that time of the year again. The nights are closing in, Black Friday is nearly here and Christmas is everywhere we look. So, if you’re doing some online shopping, whether to treat yourself or to buy Christmas presents, you can donate while you shop. The best thing is, it won’t cost you a thing.

If you’re an avid Amazon shopper you can donate by shopping on Amazon Smile.

Simply login to your Amazon account at the Amazon Smile website and they will donate for each eligible purchase. The first time you shop you’ll be asked to pick your charity, then from time to time they’ll update you on how much has been collectively donated.

In 2020, we raised an amazing £8,042.30. this year we would love to double that!

If Amazon isn’t your thing but you still like online shopping, there are lots of other ways you can support us. Easy Fundraising, Give as You Live and Savoo all allow you to donate while you shop.

All these sites have big brands involved like John Lewis, Argos & You can even set reminders to ensure you shop through the websites and we get those vital donations.

There’s more! If you are looking to do a clear out you can donate your unwanted items to Vintage Giving and donate to us at the same time.

It’s free and easy to organise and they accept lots of items including old currency, costume jewellery and cameras. Vintage Giving will even collect your donations for free!
