Check out today’s Fundraising Friday blog from Nicky, our Charity Income Manager!

An extraordinary £107billion was spent online by UK consumers in 2014 – although with improved service, lack of crowds and access all hours at our finger tips, it shouldn’t be such a surprise.

There’s no doubt that online shopping is a way of life these days, and what’s even better is that you can raise money for RLSS UK whilst you shop – AT NO EXTRA COST!

With thousands of retailers working in conjunction with Give as You Live, your favourite websites are likely to be part of the scheme, so you won’t have to compromise on where you shop for the things you want.

Even better, Give as You Live regularly run competitions where you win fantastic prize bundles along with additional donations to RLSS UK, plus you will have access to some fantastic discounts and special offers.

Get your friends to sign up, and Give as You Live will donate an additional £5 to RLSS UK for every person who starts using the scheme as well.

Along with your usual online purchases, Give as You Live offer the opportunity for you to carry on raising funds through your energy suppliers, insurance products, or when you book a holiday.

Companies and organisations can also get involved – Give as You Live for Business allows anyone who makes purchases on behalf of businesses to register and raise funds in the same way as individuals. For further information, take a look at the Give as You Live for Business information –
