On Monday 16th October the Give as you Live HQ charity team headed down to London to spend the day at the famous Harrods store.
Armed with lots of delicious cupcakes we spent the day encouraging Harrods staff to sign up to Give as you Live, so that they too could raise free funds for charity whilst shopping online.
Harrods have recently teamed up with the well-known children’s charity NSPCC, who help children who have been or are currently being abused. All money donated goes towards helping these children to rebuild their lives and to be protected from any abuse happening again.
So Harrods are on a mission!
To reach a target of £400,000 for NSPCC and this is where the employees come in – over 5,000 employees across 3 sites in Knightsbridge, Thatcham and Hammersmith. Give as you Live were thrilled to be invited to help achieve this goal.
Give as you Live is an online fundraising platform which allows fundraisers to shop online at over 4,200 stores and raise free funds for charity. Every time Harrods’ staff shop online through their new fundraising hub, a percentage of their purchase will be donated back to NSPCC for free!
It was a wonderful day speaking to lots of Harrods’ eager online shoppers and tempting them with tasty cupcakes (who could refuse!!). We explained how easy Give as you Live is to use and how the new Harrods fundraising hub works – helping their team get started on reaching their fundraising target in support of NSPCC.
