White Ribbon Campaign UK has registered with Give As You Live, an online program for donating to charity. Their program makes it quick and easy to donate to a charity of your choice, and saves us having to go out into the bitter weather shaking a tin!
It does this through online shopping - each time you make a purchase on a Give As You Live registered site the fundraising software will note your choice of charity and if the online store is listed they will make a donation to the charity at no cost to you! White Ribbon Campaign is reliant on the time and donations of individuals and we would really appreciate your help this year.
Registered sites include big and small names such as Amazon and John Lewis, and with Christmas coming up now is the ideal time to sign up. For more information and to start giving see their website: http://www.giveasyoulive.com/
