A lot of people are unaware that Amazon allows charities to generate an affiliate link, which means the charity can earn a minimum of 5% for any order made after visiting their special referral link (in the UK). Those who are, like me, often tend to forget to actually visit the links regardless. For US visitors, it will redirect to smile when it is able to.
I decided to make this add-on to take the hassle out of it. When you visit Amazon the normal way, e.g. by Google search or typing ‘amazon.co.uk’ or ‘amazon.com’ into your address bar, this add-on will notice and automatically redirect you to a random selection of the following charities’ affiliate links:
In tumultuous times, where people are shopping more & more online, I think this is a nice way to try to have a positive impact. I have some updates I shall make if people start to use this more–like checking how much will go to charity as you shop, and intercepting all requests to Amazon so even if you visit via a search result you will be routed via a charity’s affiliate link in the background first.
A friend of mine uses this for all of the business’ purchases and estimated that $20,000 or so was donated in ONE YEAR!
– Allergy UK
– Saint Francis Hospice
– Hospice Aid UK
– Weldmar Hospicecare
– Families Need Fathers
– Epilepsy Society
– Epilepsy Action
– Bumblebee Conservation Trust
It’ll also give you a native Chrome notification to let you know which one!
If you like the idea of this add-on, please share it with friends or whoever you can think of. It could generate a lot of money for a lot of great charities.
