Shaw Trust Charity Shops

Shop with Amazon Smile and transform lives

Shaw Trust have teamed up with Amazon Smile. On eligible purchases, 0.5% of what you spend on Amazon Smile will be donated to Shaw Trust! You’ll still see the same products, same prices, and same shopping features but when you purchase an item you will also be supporting the communities we help. The best part is that it doesn’t cost you anything extra!
 
To get started with Amazon Smile simply follow the steps below:
  1. Visit Amazon Smile
  2. Log in with your Amazon account or create a new acount
  3. Select Shaw Trust from the list of charities
  4. Go shopping!
Make sure you bookmark the page so that you are donating to Shaw Trust any time you shop.

From time to time, Amazon may offer special, limited time promotions that increase the donation amount on one or more product/services and provide additional donations to Shaw Trust.
