My Give as you Live Experience:
I have just earned £2.97 for Communitas International, a charity that supports children in the slums of Ethiopia, simply by buying my business stationery online and through Give as you Live.
All I wanted was a couple of packs of photocopier paper and some printer cartridges and I earned 2.5% for my charity. If I buy all of my business stationery and do my hotel and business travel bookings through Give as you Live, I think I could raise well over £100 this year. How easy is that?
It took me 2 minutes to register for Give as you Live, once the shopping App had told me I would earn 2.5%, everything else was as per usual – I was even able to use my existing Staples Business Account.
I know stationery isn’t very exciting, but if buying it online can earn valuable funds for my favourite cause, then paper, pens, envelopes and even lever arch files become a lot more interesting.
Just think what could be raised if EVERY company bought their stationery through Give as you Live.
I’m now looking to see what else my business can buy online that will earn even more for Communitas International.
Keep on spending!
