Name: Daniele Manzi
Bio: Daniele is 20 years old, currently in his second year studying Economics and Business at University College London. He has an older brother and younger sister and can often be spotted at Craven Cottage supporting his favourite football team, Fulham.
I’m a student and to be honest charity is usually the last thing on my mind. I’m just always so busy! There’s studying, socialising, TV, the list is endless. Fortunately, my superhuman ability to avoid the bigger issues has been somewhat diminished, thanks to a chance encounter with Give as you Live.
One example of my experience involves my friends and I popping onto lastminute.com for a poorly planned trip to Greece. A quick look at the site informed me that 4% of the cost of our tickets would go to Cancer Research UK, a charity which has been close to my heart for many years, and the icing on top of the cake: it came at no extra cost to me.
I think Give as you Live is a fantastic idea and it’s great that so many big retailers have got on board. I’ll be spreading the word and hopefully raising a nice sum of money for charity in the process.
