I dont know if many people are aware of the following, either way there’s no harm in reminding you all. There are ways charities can make extra money by using special web links to sites such as Amazon. I came across an article on the money saving expert web site. I have provided an extract of the article;
Earn charity funds or Nectar points
It’s possible to give charities a boost at no extra cost to you. Simply click through to Amazon from a charity’s special link, log-in and click on the product you want.
When you grab something, it’s recorded and the charity is paid cash. The charity gets around 5% of your purchase – no small beer, especially as it costs you nothing.
Click through to Amazon from there BEFORE you put anything in your basket, otherwise the charities won’t get the money. Charities that do this include: Voluntary Service Overseas, Royal National Institute of Blind People and Epilepsy Action.
If you work for a legit registered UK charity, add it to the Amazon Charity Clicks thread, so MoneySavers can help their favourite causes.
I’m going to look and see if the Nystagmus Network have set themselves up with Amazon or other companies that offer similar rewards as I would like to add a link on my site to make it a little easier.
