You don't even have to buy the item which first took you to the Amazon site. 

In the 6 months to December 2011 £101.25 was raised in this way, a further £840 in 2012, rising to £895.70 in 2013. In total £1836.95 has been donated to Merlin, the international medical healthcare charity, through this simple but effective fund-raising method.
