My Give as you Live Experience:
Our office is never quiet. It’s never quiet because I insist on playing music alllll day. Don’t get me wrong, I totally agree that silence is golden…sometimes…but mostly I just like having something to sing along to. I have quite eclectic taste in music and tend to play anything from Bon Iver to Beyonce (depending on my mood and my colleagues’ preferences.)

A few months ago, Adele’s “21” was the album of choice and I think we pretty much played it to death. However, I know that Ruth, our administrator, still holds a small flame for it so I decided to treat her. Getting the hang of this Give As You Live thing now, I went through the site to Play.com and ordered it. Simples.

What’s more, inspired by my spending, Ruth went one better (than my £6.99 purchase) and bought a blender from John Lewis to raise even more money for Romance Academy. Apparently, their customer service is amazing! We applaud you.
