Most of us make some of our purchases online these days, both personally and in the course of doing business.  This is increasingly becoming a great way to raise money for a charity, at no cost to yourself!

GAGA UK have joined up with three shopping portals, give as you live, easy fundraising, and amazon smile. If you are shopping online and you start your retailer or item search within one of these portals, then the retailer who finally gets your business will be the one who makes the contribution to GAGA UK in the end.  You don’t pay any more for your items and with each of these having several thousand online stores available, you don’t loose out on choice either.

Here’s how

So, where does the donation come from? 

Give as you Live have partnered with over 4,400 stores as well as dozens of providers across the insurance, energy and broadband sectors. When you visit these retailers via Give as you Live online and make a purchase, they give them a reward as a thank you.  Our donation comes out of that reward.  So you are not paying any extra for your purchase and we are still benefiting!

How easyfundraising helps you raise free donations

When you use easyfundraising to shop with any of their 4,000 retailers, the retailer makes a small donation to say thank you and they send those free funds to your cause. You're not paying a penny extra!

You shop. Amazon gives.

Amazon donates 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible purchases to the charitable organisation of your choice.

This is a great way to support us if you are responsible for buying stationery and other items for your workplace and you usually use Amazon for those purchases anyway.  Of course, you can also use this for any personal purchases through Amazon.

All of these online shopping portals provide a way to increase charitable giving at no cost and little effort to yourself.  Whilst it may only be pennies at a time, if enough of our supporters use these portals we could really benefit and use those pennies to really make a difference and change lives.
