Did you know your everyday purchases could help change the lives of orphan children? We’re excited to share two great ways you can donate to Top Kids that won’t cost you a penny!
In addition to using our existing account with easyfundraising we have now also linked-up with AmazonSmile too!
How to Use AmazonSmile & Easyfundraising
You can now make Top Kids your favourite charity on AmazonSmile as well as easyfundraising. Free and easy to use, these two websites donate to your chosen charity every time you shop through them, all at no extra cost to you.
Here’s our helpful guide to get you started.
We’re excited to announce Top Kids is now part of AmazonSmile’s charity list. This means your everyday purchases could help Top Kids bring hope to orhpan children in Belarus. But what is Smile and how does AmazonSmile work?
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices and shopping features. Your shopping experience stays the same, but every time you shop on AmazonSmile, Amazon donates to your chosen charity.
How much does AmazonSmile donate?
Amazon automatically donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to your chosen charity when you shop on smile.amazon.co.uk. The good news is shopping with AmazonSmile doesn’t cost you, or your chosen charity, any extra.
How do I get Amazon smile?
If you already have an Amazon account, you can begin shopping instantly. Simply visit smile.amazon.co.uk to get started.
- Log in to your Amazon account and search for Top Kids in the ‘pick your own charity’ search bar
- You’ll receive an email from Amazon and you’re ready to shop
- Shop as you normally would, knowing each purchase you make also makes a live-changing difference to an orphan
How to use Smile on the Amazon app
The main thing to note with Amazon Smile is you always need to purchase your items through smile.amazon.co.uk rather than the main Amazon site. If you use the Amazon app we have a handy workaround:
- Shop on the app as you would normally, adding items to your basket
- Before you checkout, switch to smile.amazon.co.uk on your mobile browser to complete the process.
- If you use an Apple device:
- Visit smile.amazon.co.uk in your Safari browser
- Tap the share button and scroll right to select ‘add to Home Screen’
- Click add and then delete your old Amazon app.

What do you need to do to raise money?
Firstly register with easyfundraising and tell them you want to support Top Kids. It’s free to register with no catch.
To raise money, instead of going directly to the retailer website, log into easyfundraising first and click on the retailer you want to shop with. You’ll then be taken to the retailer’s website where you shop as you would normally. But because you visited easyfundraising first, your cause gets a donation. It really is that simple.
What’s the catch?
No catch. Whatever you buy costs exactly the same as it would if you visited the retailer site directly. Easyfundraising don’t take any financial information from you as all your transactions are with the retailer. Easyfundraising won’t sell your information on and they won’t spam you. And it doesn’t cost you or your cause anything.
Please help support Top Kids by shopping online.
