LRSN launches new Amazon Smile fundraising channel

Announcing AmazonSmile

From the end of October, you can donate to LRSN as you shop! We've added another great way to help LRSN raise funds for our essential work for Lincolnshire's farming families, with AmazonSmile.

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support LRSN every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.co.uk, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as amazon.co.uk, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to us.

To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.co.uk from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. And why not add a bookmark to smile.amazon.co.uk to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile?

Millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations to charities by Amazon. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for smile.amazon.co.uk” on their product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.

Your existing Amazon account details will work on both amazon.co.uk and smile.amazon.co.uk. Your shopping cart, Wish List, a wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.

On your first visit to smile.amazon.co.uk you will be asked to select a charitable organisation to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping – just type in Lincolnshire Rural Support Network (in full, LRSN won't work) to the search box and that should be that. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.co.uk will result in a donation.

Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, VAT, and service charges, and less any rebates, returns, and bad debt. From time to time, we may offer special, limited time promotions that increase the donation amount on one or more products or services or provide for additional donations to charitable organisations. Special terms and restrictions may apply.
