Amazon is now donating a percentage of the purchase price of millions of products to UK charities, at no extra cost to customers or the charities that they select.
How AmazonSmile works
For the donation to be triggered, customers must visit www.smile.amazon.co.uk. When you buy qualifying items Amazon will then donate 0.5% of the net purchase price, excluding VAT, shipping fees and returns to your choice of UK registered charity. Your choice of charity is made when you first visit the site but can be changed at any time – the donations are made at NO EXTRA COST to you as the consumer or us as the charity, so why not register the Pink Ribbon Foundation as your preferred charity and help us to support those with a breast cancer diagnosis.
Donations are usually rounded up and will be sent to the Pink Ribbon Foundation approximately 28 days after the end of the following calendar quarter. So that you never miss an opportunity to raise money for the Pink Ribbon Foundation, why not download Smilematic, a free Chrome extension that will automatically turn your everyday Amazon purchases into AmazonSmile donations. Simply click here to add Smilematic to your browser. There are no popups or annoyances. Shop Amazon as usual but now 0.5% of everything you spend will be donated to your favourite charity. It’s that simple. Get Smilematic for Chrome today and raise money on autopilot.
Lisa Allen, Head of Corporate Partnerships, PR and Events, says: "AmazonSmile will provide a new way for people to support the Pink Ribbon Foundation, helping us to support more women (and a smaller percentage of men) living with a breast cancer diagnosis."
Earn a bit. Give a bit. Everyone benefits.
When you're selling, the real beauty of eBay for Charity is that there's something for everyone - yourself included. You decide exactly what percentage of your final selling price you'd like to give to charity (that's the Pink Ribbon Foundation sorted), and what percentage you'd like for yourself (that's you sorted).
eBay for Charity listings are the same as any other eBay listing, except for the blue and yellow eBay for Charity ribbon in search results and your chosen charity's mission statement and logo in your listing. This means your listing can be seen by everyone who searches through eBay.co.uk. It'll also get extra visibility through the eBay for Charity pages.
It's the perfect way to make a difference – while doing what you do every day on eBay, whether you're a fishing enthusiast selling angling gear or a big business trading electronics.
Every time you list an item for charity, you'll get a fee credit on your basic insertion and final value fees equal to the percentage you donate. So, if you donate 50% of your selling price to a charity, eBay will waive 50% of your fees.
Gift Aid is one of the easiest ways to make your donation tax effective. Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, the charity will receive an extra 25p from the government.
Simply log into PayPal Gift Aid to make your declaration. When your charity item sells, provided you pay more in UK income or capital gains tax than you're asking charities to claim back in each tax year, the PayPal Giving Fund will collect the Gift Aid from the government and pass it on to your chosen charity.
So, what are you waiting for? Earn money – donate money – and declutter at the same time!
Skydive for the Pink Ribbon Foundation
A Tandem skydive is the easiest and most popular of all skydives. It requires only 30 minutes of training before you then jump strapped to your instructor! The BPA (British Parachute Association) qualified tandem instructor does all of the hard work for you, allowing you to enjoy the exhilarating feeling of flying through the clouds from over 10,000 feet at up to 120 mph! It is a truly unforgettable experience.
To jump for FREE all you need to do is raise a minimum of £395 for the Pink Ribbon Foundation. It really is that simple! You can reserve your place initially with a £70 deposit and spend the rest of your time fundraising in the lead up to your jump. As long as you reach this target all costs are covered including your sponsorship, allowing you to take part in your very own skydiving adventure - whilst at the same time raising vital funds to support those affected by breast cancer!
How to get started skydiving for FREE -
1. BOOK NOW: click here and enter the Pink Ribbon Foundation as your chosen charity, along with your details. Here you'll need to select your airfield and a couple of dates that you can do. If you aren't sure of your closest airfield just take a look at the airfield map.
2. There's a £70 deposit required to book in, but don't worry this is part of the £395 that we ask you to raise so you're welcome to reimburse yourself the cost with any cash sponsors you collect once you've hit your target!

The Refashion Guide offer value to the customer, in that they are provided with the opportunity to purchase prestige products at discounted prices, whilst simultaneously contributing to a charitable cause.
The Pink Ribbon Foundation is delighted to partner with the Refashion Guide and we see this as a fantastic opportunity to raise extra funds for our charity.
