There were many people shopping last week, at a variety of different Give as you Live stores. But a select few shoppers raised considerable donations for their favourite causes.
Buying a laptop online, taking out a new mobile phone contract, renewing your insurance… All of these things, when done online, can make a difference to charity.
Here are our top 5 donations this week
1. £25.30 raised for Compassion in World Farming at Dell.
A donation of just £25 helps Compassion influence those in power to prevent animal cruelty and change attitudes to farming and food production.
2. £25 raised for RNLI at O2 Shop
The RNLI is an independent charity, funded by voluntary donations and they provide 24-hour lifeboats and seasonal lifeguards dedicated to saving lives at sea. Just £16 donated to the RNLI pays for a pair of hard wearing, waterproof gloves that are vital safety equipment – so keep on shopping.
3. £24 raised for Children with Cancer at TalkTalk.
This amount of money can help the charity make prevention a reality. It could fund one day’s worth of essential laboratory consumables for a key project, working on the development of a vaccine against childhood leukaemia.
4. £20 raised for Cystic Fibrosis Trust at RAC Breakdown Insurance
Cystic Fibrosis is one of the UK’s most common, life-threatening, inherited diseases. This money will go towards supporting the 9,000 people in the UK have CF, that’s one in every 2,500 babies born.
The above Give as you Live transactions raised a total of £111.76, and that’s just from 5 people shopping online. If you haven’t done so yet, download Give as you Live today, and make sure your charity is in the ‘top donations’ list next week!
