Can you help us raise funds through your online shopping?
The charity has signed up to Give as you Live, an online shopping link which gives donations to charities from commissions paid by the online retailers you buy from (at no cost to you). You first need to join, and select the River Thames Boat Project as your cause. If you join using this link we will obtain an additional £5.
There is a website page from which you can click through to retailers, or use a price comparison function, or check on how much you have raised. If you prefer you can install the ‘shopping toolbar’ which then shows at the top of the screen whenever you go directly to a participating online retailer (although some like Amazon don’t allow them, so you will need to access them from the Give as you Live website)
Anyone can use it. Please invite friends and family. You can either send them the invite link above or create your own using the ‘recruit your friends and get a free £5 donation’ option. Make sure you ask them to specify the River Thames Boat Project as their cause! Here is a quick video of how it all works.
And please tell us what you think. Are you comfortable with this sort of fundraising? Have you come across better options ? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
