2018 In Numbers

Here at Give as you Live one of our favourite end-of-the-year activities is to pause and reflect on all that we've done and the charities we've supported over the past twelve months. 

10 Million

pounds raised for charity! 2018 was the year we hit the massive 8-figure amount raised in FREE funds for charities across the UK, all at no cost to the Giving Heroes shopping online via Give as you Live. Find out more about our £10 Million celebrations here.


pounds raised in FREE bonuses! 2018 was the year we launched our hero badges marking milestones in your fundraising journey and raising extra bonus donations from Give as you Live too! All those 50p's soon added up - we've donated a whopping £24,000 in these free bonuses. Cats Protection alone received £565 in hero bonuses!


new Giving Heroes raising FREE funds via their online shopping! We love what we do here at Give as you Live, and that is largely down to the incredible members (aka Giving Heroes) using our site to supercharge their charity fundraising and help their chosen charity grow. THANK YOU!


new teammates! 2018 was the year we welcomed 3 new uniquely wonderful new faces into Give as you Live HQ. We searched near AND far for them too, from the local college (hey Apprentice Will!) to professional football.


days volunteering completed! All Give as you Live staff are entitled to up to 3 paid days to volunteer for charity every single year! This year our boys and girls have done everything from shovelling animal muck to social media management for charitable fireworks events. We've also done our bit at Christmas, wrapping presents in the shopping centre for our local charity, and donating 4 crates of food to the Christmas foodbank. Meet our team here.
