Bunk and Bank

Name: Franklin Jacoyange
Profession: Fundraiser
Location: Grays, Essex
Bio: Corporate fundraiser working for a breast cancer charity, in addition to my day job, I have what I consider the best job in the world which is being a father to my two little boys Elvin and Ethan. I enjoy traveling, listening to folk music and have a keen interest in motor vehicles.

My Give as you Live Experience:
My elder boy Elvin who is 8 years old has always wanted a bunk bed so that he can have his friends stay for a sleep over.

Being the ever cautious parent, I have been reluctant because his little brother Ethan is only 3 years old and as it goes, they wouldn’t resist the urge to use the bunk bed as some sort of climbing frame for entertainment! I have since been reliably convinced by Elvin that he would police this on my behalf.

Having succumbed to the constant nudge, I decided to trawl the net looking for a bargain and landed on the Tesco Direct website.

With the Give as you Live App already downloaded on my computer, it quickly become apparent that I would not only get a great buy but the purchase would also enable me to raise money for my charity Breast Cancer Campaign at no additional cost to me. The bunk bed was delivered last week and there is surprisingly more space in the room!

So far, I have raised £9.50 but as I am a regular online shopper, I will now only shop on sites that generate a donation for my chosen charity though Give as you Live!
