October 2021
It's coming up to that time of year where many of us are starting to think of what gifts we would like to buy for our loved ones.

Here, we are recommending three online shopping platforms that generate free funds for Project Harar, chances are if you live in the UK you might already be using them without optimising their full charitable potential... 

1. AmazonSmile 

Like the name suggests, AmazonSmile is operated by Amazon, offering the same products, prices and shopping experience. The difference with AmazonSmile, is that with every eligible purchase you make, a donation is made from Amazon to your chosen charity. So you can help raise vital funds for Project Harar, just by shopping online. 

The donation from amazon from your purchase is 0.5%, the donation is made automatically and shopping with AmazonSmile doesn’t cost you, or your chosen charity, any extra.


How do I get AmazonSmile?

If you already have an Amazon account visit smile.amazon.co.uk to get started.

  • Once you are on the AmazonSmile site, you can log in to your Amazon account and search Project Harar in the ‘Pick your own charity’ search bar
  • Select Project Harar
  • You’ll receive an email from Amazon confirming Project Harar as your charity
  • Shop as you usually would, knowing each purchase you make is also making a difference to a child in Ethiopia, who is waiting for treatment for a cleft lip or palate - help a child smile with AmazonSmile
