Give as you Live

Give as you Live works with more than 4,000 top retailers including John Lewis, Marks & Spencer, ebay and Expedia to turn a percentage of every penny you spend online into a donation to us. So everything from clothes shopping to your weekly supermarket shop to booking your summer holiday – all these things can earn us money without any extra cost to you!

Each time you shop online at supported retailers a commission is paid to Give as you Live by the retailers, which Give as you Live shares with us.

All you have to do is sign up to us through Give as you Live and either:
  • Shop through the Give as you Live website - follow the links to visit your chosen retailer and sop online as normal.
  • Install the Shopping Bar to your browser which will allow you to see from your search engine results which shops are signed up to Give as you Live and how much you could donate to us through your purchases. This is safe and simple and only takes a few seconds. It means you'll never miss a donation by forgetting to shop through Give as you Live.
  • Download the Give as you Live app on your tablet or mobile phone.
  • Buy gift cards or store cards and top-ups for places such as Cineworld, Argos, Debenhams, B&Q and Pizza Express and for each purchase Give as you Live will make a donation of up to 6% to Church Army.
So no matter how you prefer to shop you can support us while you're doing it - all without it costing you any extra. It is safe, simple, so easy to do and every penny donated to us genuinely makes a massive difference to the lives we work with. So to get started simply sign up to Give as you Live.

Amazon Smile

Amazon Smile is operated by Amazon with the same products, prices and service. Your shopping experience stays the same but every time you shop on Amazon Smile, Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to your chosen charity. Shopping with Amazon Smile doesn’t cost you, or your chosen charity, any extra.

To get started, simply visit and log into your Amazon account and select Church Army as your chosen charity.

The main thing to remember with Amazon Smile is you always need to purchase your items through rather than the main Amazon site.
