    Just signed up to this for Invest in ME.
    Note; to get the donation when you shop on Amazon you need to go via a different URL. This is explained and you can get an Amazon assistant addon for your browser.

    "Amazon donates 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible purchases to the charitable organisation of your choice."

    I'd been using a link on meruk website where I'd thought more than 0.5% went to them from amazon.
    It's worth doing as I regularly shop there simply for convenience, or price but it doesn't make amazon a hero, their tax affairs and many other companies give good cash back on sites such as easy fundraising or topcashback (up to 12-15% in some cases) so don't think amazon is always the best way to assist charities through shopping.
