wouldn’t it be wonderful if you were able to raise money for your favourite charities whenever you shopped online? well, with easyfundraising you can now do just that!
with the site and by simply shopping with any of their 2,700 registered retailers – including john lewis, asos and next – you can raise money for your chosen charity. for every item you buy through the site, easyfundraising will track your purchase and fulfil a donation back to your chosen charity. to date, they have raised over £11 million for charities in the uk.
they even have a really really useful toolbar app you can add to your browser to notify you whenever you visit an easyfundraising retailer. you’ll also notice that when you use google, some retailers have the easyfundraising icon next to their listing.
as january and february are the most popular months for booking summer getaways (go figure), easyfundraising are currently running a campaign focussed on travel called around the world in 7 donations. for every purchase made on travel – whether that be a hotel, flight or package holiday – your chosen charity or cause will earn a bonus donation of up to 20%.
easyfundraising asked me to support the campaign by choosing my top 7 travel essentials from registered retailers, and as i’m off to brussels in a few weeks with sofitel (part of the accorhotels) i thought i’d share the items i’ll be packing for my trip. these include a portable charger, mini toiletries, my new aspinal currency wallet and my feel at home 3 phone, with no roaming charges :)
what do you think – it’s a bit of a no-brainer, isn’t it? my chosen charity to support through easyfundraising is cardiac risk in the young (CRY), which i’ve been raising money for in memory of a dear friend for a number of years. which charity will you choose to support?
