In the run up to Christmas 2013 an estimated £17bn will be spent online. Yes, that’s a huge amount of money.
Once you’ve registered with Give as you Live, every time you buy online from one of the thousands of shops and brands listed with Give as you Live, the shop or brand you buy from makes a donation to charity. It couldn’t be simpler.
That donation can be anything from 1 per cent to 4 per cent of the amount you spend. Granted, this is just a tiny fraction of the total Christmas consumer bonanza, but a small percentage of a large amount can go a long way.
The reality is: if everyone did all their online Christmas shopping through Give as you Live, an eye-watering £650 million would be donated to charity.
So, if you aren’t already shopping with Give as you Live, please make a resolution to start doing so this Christmas. And if you are shopping with Give as you Live, please try and persuade just one other person you know to do the same.
Donations from Give as you Live are making a difference to World Land Trust’s important work to conserve the world’s threatened rainforests and biodiverse habitats. Please help spread the Give as you Live message.
