Did you know that when you shop via AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate to your favourite charitable organisation at no extra cost to you? Yes, that’s right, a free donation from Amazon and all you have to do is shop!

So, what exactly is AmazonSmile? AmazonSmile offers all the same products at the same prices and with all the same services you’d expect from Amazon, except with one difference. When you use AmazonSmile, the retailer will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to the charity of your choice.

The Theatre Development Trust, listed as a charity option on AmazonSmile, is a great option for theatre fans who frequently use Amazon. This is a brilliant way to give back to the industry at a time when it’s so needed and donations will go towards the Theatre Artists Fund, to help theatre workers across the UK who are in need of urgent financial support.

To make it easy for you to get started, here’s a quick guide to using AmazonSmile using both the website and the app.

AmazonSmile website

1.Go to smile.amazon.co.uk

If you already have an Amazon account, when you visit smile.amazon.co.uk, all you need to do is sign in using your usual login details. If you don’t have an Amazon account, it’s free and super easy to set up, here!



2.Once you’ve logged in, you will be asked to select the charity of your choice. Search The Theatre Development Trust, click select and you’re ready to shop!


Tip: You must remember to visit smile.amazon.com each time you shop in order for the donation to be made, so saving it as a bookmark will definitely help!
