Amazon Smile

AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support Back Up every time you shop, at no cost to you. You’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.co.uk, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to Back Up.

Give as you Live

Did you know you can raise money for Back Up simply by shopping online?

Each store you shop in via Give as you Live will donate a percentage of each purchase to any cause a shopper selects, and to make it even better it costs you nothing to Give as you Live, as the stores donate the money, not the shopper.

So, the next time you fancy a new wardrobe, get online to Give as you Live and remember to select Back Up as your charity. We promise to tell you how lovely you look in your new outfit.

eBay for Charity

You can now support people affected by spinal cord injury whenever you sell an item on eBay.

It couldn’t be easier! The next time you’re listing an item to sell, simply choose the charity you want to support and the percentage of the final sale you want to donate. This can be as little or as much as you want – from 10% to 100%.

One of our dedicated supporters, Lucy Robinson, has already been using eBay for Charity to support us:

“I just sold my wardrobe on eBay and the money went directly to Back Up. How cool!”
