We had a perfect mix of guests, from newspaper journalists to mummy bloggers to charity representatives, who all came to learn more about the potential Give as you Live has for Christmas.
There’s £170m available through British online shoppers this Christmas, as demonstrated by our festive infographic, but no-one has to donate any extra money.
So, if you’re planning to buy an iPad 2 for your tech-obsessed husband, you could raise £5.99 for charity at the same time through Give as you Live, or a Ride on Dalek for your son will raise £6.30. It’s that simple.
Everyone left with an early Christmas present, all bought through Give as you Live of course, and each gift raised over £1 for charity. We hope we motivated our guests into starting their Christmas shopping early…as with Give as you Live you can also give charities a present, so there’s an extra incentive.
Thank you to all who attended, we had a fantastic day!
