The first Monday of every December is known as Cyber Monday – the biggest online shopping day of the year. This year, Cyber Monday falls on Monday 6th December. So why Cyber Monday and not Cyber Tuesday or Friday? The first Monday in December is the day when most people have received their last pay cheque until after the 25th, and when people have started to think about their Christmas shopping. With more and more people shopping online and avoiding the stores, Cyber Monday has turned into the biggest online shopping day of the year.
Last year £4,000 was spent every second on Cyber Monday*. That equates to £100 per second that could be donated to deserving causes with Give as you Live.
With the launch of Give as you Live set for any day now, this Cyber Monday you’ll be able to track just how much your Christmas shopping has raised for your favourite cause.
Did you know that the average Christmas shopper spends £262 on presents for each of their children? If our supporters with children were to Give as you Live this Christmas, they could raise £6.55 per child, giving more than just happiness and joy to their children. And with 25%* of all Christmas shopping time spent in queues, Christmas shopping online with Give as you Live will both raise funds for your favourite cause and save your sanity!
This year, avoid the shops and queues and instead raise funds as you shop online with Give as you Live.
