Hi Sunshine Readers,
During this challenging time, whilst we can’t fundraise in person, we have registered with easyfundraising, our new shopping best friend! Easyfundraising is the UK’s biggest charity shopping fundraising site. It’s simple to use and completely free, which means that you can now help us raise free donations, simply by shopping at your favourite sites. Since its launch in 2005, easyfundraising has helped thousands of good causes raise money simply by shopping online. Their community of over 1.8 million loyal supporters has so far raised over £31 million, and we are so excited to be part of their team!
Easyfundraising has over 4,000 shops and sites which will donate to us at no extra cost to yourself, including lots of big-name retailers like John Lewis, Argos, Uswitch, eBay, M&S, Just Eat, Now TV, Domino's Pizza and Audible. All you have to do is sign up to support us on their website by searching for The Chronicle Sunshine Fund. Then every time you shop online, go through the easyfundraising website or App and we’ll receive a % of your spend as a free donation, at no cost to you or us.
Once signed up, you will raise a donation for us every time you shop online via easyfundraising - whether you’re doing your weekly grocery shop, buying car insurance, booking a holiday or even switching energy provider. It gets even better too, once you’ve signed up and raised £5 in donations, easyfundraising will give us an extra £5 bonus donation!
The fundraising site have made it super simple to not forget to use them when shopping too. They have designed handy tools to help you remember such as installing the donation reminder onto your desktop, in just a couple of clicks, which will then automatically highlight retailers where a donation is available while you’re browsing. Or you can simply download the easyfundraising app. You’ll be able to use the app whenever you shop from your mobile or tablet and know that you’ll never miss out on a donation.
As we are all practising Social Distancing more of our shopping is being done online and we’re over the moon that it really is a simple and FREE way to support us during this difficult time.
An average online shopper can easily raise over £100 a year with easyfundraising. Multiply that by the number of people already fundraising for us, and the size of the prize is huge. Just think how much we could raise in total, and how we could use the funds to benefit our cause!
We really need all the help we can get at the moment and any funds we raise will make a big difference to us, so we’d really appreciate it if you could take a moment to sign up and support us. Thank you so much easyfundraising and to you for helping us support the lives of children living with disabilities, right here in the North East. Let us know if you sign up!
