Raising Money Online


AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support a charity of your choice every time you shop on Amazon, at no cost to you. Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to Reading Mencap if you select us as your chosen charity.

To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.co.uk from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.co.uk to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile. You can also use this tool, which is a browser extension that redirects you to AmazonSmile automatically: https://couponfollow.com/smilematic

You use the same account details to log in as your usual Amazon account. On your first visit you will need to select Reading Mencap to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Amazon will then remember your selection for future purchases.

AmazonSmile is now available in the Amazon Shopping app on iPhones and Android phones. Simply follow these instructions to turn on AmazonSmile and start generating donations.

  1. Open the Amazon Shopping app on your device
  2. Go into the main menu of the Amazon Shopping app and tap into 'Settings'
  3. Tap 'AmazonSmile' and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.

If you do not have the latest version of the Amazon Shopping app, update your app. You can find instructions at AmazonSmile.

Support Reading Mencap when you shop or sell on eBay.

  •  • MAKE US YOUR FAVOURITE! First, personalise your shopping experience to benefit our organisation by making us your Favourite charity on eBay. This will help us more than you know.
  •  • DONATE TO US IN EBAY CHECKOUT: By making us your Favourite, you will automatically see Reading Mencap as your preferred charity when you buy anything on eBay, making it easy to add £1 or more upon checkout.
  •  • SELL YOUR ITEMS TO BENEFIT US: Last but not least, sell your used items on eBay and donate as little as 10% (1% for vehicles) or up to 100% of your sale to benefit us. When you sell, simply look for the eBay for Charity signature blue and yellow ribbon next to “Make a donation.” Check out the benefits you’ll receive:
    •     + eBay will waive your Final Value Fees to the extent you donate. (e.g. donate 20% and see 20% of your Final Value Fees waived)
    •     + The tax credit from all of your donations is yours to keep.
    •     + Items that benefit charity sell better, as buyers trust sellers that support charity more.
    •     + Help the world by upcycling/recycling. Plenty of items that might otherwise end up in a landfill can be readily used by others that may not have the means to buy something new.
    •     + Feel good for doing good.
