There are many ways you can support JWOC while you shop online, take a look at some of the options below:
If you start your Amazon shop at smile.amazon.com and pick ‘Journeys Within Our Community’ as your charity of choice. You will get all the same deals and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the value of your shop to JWOC!
You can also use Amazon Smile on your phone or tablet by following these simple instructions:
- Uninstall the Amazon app if you already have it. Simply tap and hold the app icon until it starts to jiggle. Tap the cross at the top left of the icon and confirm that you want to delete it. Don’t worry, this will not delete your Amazon account or any of your settings.
- Using your web-browser, to go to smile.amazon.com
For android phones and tablets: click the three dots on the top right and tap ‘Add to Home Screen’. You may need to scroll down to see this.
For iPhones and iPads: Tap the ‘share’ button on the bottom of the screen and then tap ‘Add to Home Screen’ icon. You may need to swipe to the left to see this.
You will now have an Amazon Smile icon on your home screen which you can use in exactly the same way you used the Amazon App.
