Amazon Smile and The Giving Machine

We have a brilliant, simple way to help raise funds for Killinghall School and kindly ask you to take a few minutes to set up Amazon Smile and/or The Giving Machine. By doing so, donations are made to us by retailers when you shop online and with no extra cost to you! You only have to sign up once, not each time you make a purchase. It’s the perfect time to sign up -  as we start to think about our Christmas shopping! I promise you that it super easy and won’t take muc time at all but could really make a difference to our school.

Amazon Smile

Log onto www.smile.amazon.co.uk

  • Click on ‘Get Started’.
  • Logon if you have an existing Amazon account or sign up for one if you haven’t.
  • Select a charity: Killinghall PTA and that’s it! 

You only have to register once and then when you make any future purchases through Amazon it will let you know if the items you are interested in are eligible for Amazon Smile donations. If so, school will automatically receive that donation upon purchase (0.5% of the net purchase price)

The Giving Machine

There are over 2000 retailers who will donate cash to our school at no additional cost to you – including John Lewis, ebay, Boden, Groupon, Sports Direct, Boots, Pets at Home, Decathlon, Next and M&S.

Click on www.thegivingmachine.co.uk

  • Click on the ‘Members’ tab at the top.
  • Click the ‘Join in’ tab at the top and then sign up by clicking on ‘Join as a Giver’.
  • Choose your cause: Type ‘Killinghall CE Primary School’ in the search bar.
  • Click on ‘Killinghall CE Primary’ in the Matching Search Results.
  • Click on *Join & Support
  • Complete Your Details
  • Once your registration is complete please install the Shop&Give reminder by clicking on ‘Get Shop&Give’. This is really important as, whenever you visit participating retailers, a prompt will pop up in the top right hand corner of the screen to remind you that a donation can be made when you purchase from that store. The prompt will tell you how much will be donated if you make a purchase and you then click on the prompt so that the donation can be issued at the checkout.

For every purchase you make through The Giving Machine, the school will receive a small (usually a %) donation.

This really is a fabulous way to raise funds and we look forward to your support in this. You could even send this letter to friends and family members and ask them to sign up to support us too!

Thank you so much,

Killinghall Primary School PTA
