Give as you Live video competition winners: May

At the start of May we launched our monthly video competition where we asked our shoppers, schools and charities to share their Give as you live experience for their chance to win £500!

To celebrate the launch we’ve selected winners from all three categories! The votes are in and we can announce that the winners are as follows:

Integrated Education Fund
“Give as you Live is a fantastic way for our supporters to raise money for the Integrated Education Fund and winning this competition is an added bonus. The £500 prize money will go towards helping us to support parents and schools who want children, from all faiths and none, to be educated together in Northern Ireland.” Paul Caskey, Campaign Director

Bishop Gilpin School
“This really is fantasic news, we are so grateful that we have won this competition.  It means that we can buy even more new books for our ‘new library – developing the love of reading’ school project. Thank you so much GAYL.”

“Chloe is very excited to have won the competition, we will definitely be spending our winnings through Give as you Live, raising even more money for our chosen charity The Alzheimers Society. We hope the Give as you Live rap has raised awareness of Give as you Live.” Kerry Pargeter-Smith

The next deadline is the end of June, so get out that camera or smartphone and start sharing your story!

We’re giving away this fantastic prize to a shopper, school or charity every single month.

At Give as you Live HQ we’re all about giving, so on months where a shopper scoops the prize the £500 will be split equally between the shopper and their nominated charity.

How it works

Record your one-minute video, upload it to YouTube, share it on your social networks and let us know about it too. One online shopper or good cause will win £500 every month. You can find out more and see examples on our videos page.

What makes a great video?

  • Examples of what online shopping can raise
  • Seeing how the money raised through Give as you Live has been put to use (if possible)
  • Demonstrating the benefits of Give as you Live in a funny or thought-provoking way

In the event of a tie, we’ll give the prize to the video with the most views on YouTube – so get sharing!
