That is a bit of a mouthful isnt it? Maybe I should say this is easier done than said!
We are all now, sadly, thinking about doing our Back To School shopping. Clothing / shoes / bags / lunch boxes / pencils it is that time of year that we all seem to do nothing but spend money.
What with that spend and Christmas looming (yes I have said the C word) there is never any spare cash for charity donations and charities really feel the pinch.
Well how about combining the two? Shopping on line AND donating to charity in a way that doesn’t cost you a penny.
Look at this:
In six months I have raised over £60 for Victim Support by doing my shopping online with Give As You Live. That is £10 a month!
And it hasn’t cost me a penny. Not one single penny
All of that money has come from the online retailers as a percentage of my spend. Ranging from 1% to a whopping 10% when I bought our holiday travel insurance in July.
All you need to do is register your email address at Give As You Live and then visit all your usual retailers to do your shopping. It is that simple. GAYL will track your sale and the percentage will automatically be credited to your GAYL account and it will then be donated to a charity of your choice.
Got a list of stationery? How about 5% of it going to charity?
Or how about all those socks, tights and shirts earning 3%
Both these stores have sales at the moment (hence the “expires in 10 days”, that does not refer to the percentages) so how about taking a look at Give As You Live today? Not only could you save money but you could raise money for charity too.
I have not been paid for this post, but I am an Ambassador for GAYL receiving a fee for writing a fixed number of blogs over the year.
