I was buying something from Amazon and did a Google search to see if I could get cashback on Quidco etc. No cashback available but I've just seen you can shop via this link and it will generate a 5% donation to RNLI, a really great cause.

Edit: oUkTuRkEyIII has pointed out this has been posted before and applies to lots of charities, not just RNLI. I've edited the post to signpost to the recent post to maybe highlight to others that missed it just like I did.

Is there a link which encourages Amazon to pay the correct amount of UK tax?

The charity is called the British Government, the donation is called tax.

Thanks for drawing this to people's attention once again. Many people use this site and buy from Amazon and I guess the majority don't know about these affiliate sites which Amazon then donate 5% of total purchase price to. Takes me 20 seconds to close down Amazon, find the affiliate and then click through.
Experienced online buyers and people who know about cashback should really have no trouble doing this.
The people who criticise Amazon's completely legal tax arrangements, from their history tend not to contribute anything to this site and also appear to be complete hyprocrites when looking at their deal history.
It's very simple. Either buy off Amazon without them and you paying 5% to charity or don't!!
If I am spending £100 with Amazon I'd prefer a fiver to go to charity than not. It also makes it a lot easier to say no to aggressive beggars - many of which are professional.
Search for your preferred or local charity as they may be involved now. I was heartened to find that the hospice that looked after my mum has got with the programme so I now always click through there instead of Macmillian which pay obscene salaries to their board or the RNLI
The hospice that looked after my mum Weldmar hospice
Were excellent. I hope that there is a charity that is close to your heart and that you click through and remember whatever.
Hope that this post gets the exposure and heat it deserves.
Although I suspect it will be superseded but fake deals or Tesco wild goose chases and the trolls that scour the site.
Already a few ignores on here!!
Well, if these large corporations paid their tax liability the Government would be able to provide more funds into services such as the NHS so your Mum would not need to rely on charitable trusts for care.
You seem to have an issue with Macmillan as you highlight them, however they are instrumental in the development of cancer treatment. Good old Amazon’s development include how to get Chinese mass produced rubbish to your doorstep by drone.
I know which company contributes more to the wellbeing of this country!

Other than for amazon wouldn't you be better off using topcashback or quidco and then donating yourself? They have higher cashback rates.

Same for this from what I've seen. Other than amazon, the other rates on kidstart are lower than quidco or topcashback. So you would best using kidstart for amazon and tcb or quidco for everything else before withdrawing and saving in your child's name (if that's what you want)

I use easyfundraising for a lot of those sites that don't normally offer cashback such as Amazon, John Lewis & Lakeland. The only thing I found with buying with Amazon with this site is that you need to add items 'fresh' to your basket after going through easyfundraising (ie you can't just buy what is already in your basket) or it doesn't track.

Amazon need to re-invest in their customer services before they start giving money away. Awful downturn in recent months, moved the call center to distant shores (rather than Ireland) and now there are massive communication problems. Personally, I've canceled all my orders, subscriptions and I'm contemplating canceling Prime too. CEO office involved now.

I'm sure they just came top in customer satisfaction ratings recently.

Oh good luck with the CEO office, you'll get a reply from Executive Customer Relations. I got a reply from some fool that couldn't even spell. On every email he sent it was just the same response cut and pasted. You think you are getting somewhere until you realise that the whole process is designed to frustrate you so much you will give up and go away.

Sometimes even a charity needs to pay the going rate to get the right people at the top.

You do realise the RNLI receives no government funding and relies on donations for 94% of their income?

Its a life saving UK service and personally I think they deserve every penny.

While not a charity (but these people do have family's to feed) you could help support a YouTube'r.
It's a good way to make a contribution to a channel you regularly watch without it costing you anymore than it normally would.

People are annoyed when they find many heads at these organisations earn over £200k a year.
It puts people off donating as they are simply paying salaries first.
They should declare the proportion of donation used to pay overheads.

With a lifeboat rescue organisation everything is an overhead. They dont give money out in aid, every penny goes towards operating costs, be it advertising wages or equipment.

I can see the point though but think its a little different with the RNLI.

They have a succesfull service who can operate without government funding and all the strings and bureaucracy attached.

Don't forget that HUKD change affiliate links to get themselves paid, if you click through directly via HUKD.
Shouldn't be too much of a problem with this thread, but previously people were posting links directly to Amazon website for RNLI donation from HUKD, and the affiliate link would change to HUKD over RNLI. You do need to go to the RNLI website via a link, and then re-direct to Amazon.

I had a look at the accountsnof the hospice you mentioned and they paid out £3 million to raise £8 million that's a really poor return on investment they really need to spend money on quality staff that you don't seem to like paying for that know how to maximise fundraising revenues with a reduced costs. Raising and spending money costs money you know. Finance departments, HR, comms, marketing are not cheap hence why attracting quality CEOs cost money but reaps massive rewards when fundraising. I give to Save the children myself who have had bad press for the cost of their CEO yet they only spend 1% of their revenues on fundraising.

If this government actually forced companies like Amazon to pay their taxes here rather than base themselves in low tax digital havens like Luxembourg we might not actually need charities anymore.

There is a site called 'give as you live' that has many charities listed that you can donate to when shopping online at many retailers. You create an account and chose your charity and when you are shopping go via give as you live and a certain percentage of the price of your purchase goes to your chosen charity. The percentage donated varies from retailer to retailer but even a few pence for a charity is better than nothing. i did install the browser extension for give as you live but it kept crashing so I removed it ..

Sorry if anyone has mentioned this site before.

Totally agree, but I didn't suggest it for any retailer, I suggested it for Amazon. There are several retailers that are on kidstart but not on other mainstream cashback sites.

You can also get others who are less inclined to use cashback sites, like maybe some older generation relatives, happy to use a Web add on for kidstart as they're saving for little Johnny or Little Jane directly without having to do anything.

Always better to know about something and be able to make an informed decision than not know.

Have fun!

People are concerned with the inhouse lawyer for HR being paid £70k and the chief exec' pay. One may argue such salaries are not necessary for a charity. They should publish salaries of top management.
