5. AmazonSmile - donate while you shop online


Home-start is now registered with AmazonSmile you can select us as your designated charity, every time you shop, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the value of your order to us.  It’s incredibly easy and quick to set up, and if you bookmark the link to AmazonSmile instead of Amazon on your devices you only have to do it once.  With Christmas shopping season coming up, we’re very much hoping that this will bring in some much needed funds.  The fundraising climate is tough and we need your help.  Remember, you will have to go through AmazonSmile, not Amazon, every time you shop but it’s exactly the same website, so you won’t know the difference.  Why not do it now while you’re thinking of it?  Here’s the link AmazonSmile

How can you give?

“ I remember when my girls were little and times were tough. I think what a difference it would have made to me to have had a volunteer come in and lessen the load for a while, and that is what I have tried to be to the families I have helped. I will remember these years  as a volunteer as very happy positive years”
