How it works for shoppers

How can I help my favourite charity just by shopping online?

Give as you Live works with 3,523 leading stores that have signed up to donate a commission on every online purchase to the charity of your choice. This commission is already included in the price of what you’re buying, so you can support your favourite cause, at no extra cost to you.

It's not too good to be true.

Every popular comparison website uses a similar model. With our technology you can still get the best deals online by comparing millions of products and thousands of brands, but with Give as you Live you can also send a percentage of everything you spend to the charity of your choice. All without spending a penny more.

How to get started:

  1. Click get started.
  2. Select your favourite charity, school or cause if no charity selected.
  3. Install Give as you Live and start shopping as you usually do.

It’s that simple. If you have any questions please use our online help. We look forward to helping support your favourite cause just by shopping online.
