Here at Give as you Live HQ, we are thrilled to start the year on a high – being tipped as the “one to watch in 2014” by The Mail on Sunday and Glamour Magazine.
With the economy on the mend, experts are predicting that 2014 could be the Year for Britain’s small firms to make their mark. The Mail on Sunday has named Give as you Live as one of their “Ones to Watch”; those companies that they think are really going places in 2014.
We work with over 3000 leading stores that have signed up to donate a commission every time you shop online. Our retailers include John Lewis, Amazon, Waterstones, B&Q, ASOS and holiday companies Lastminute.com and Expedia. You can choose from more than 200,000 charities to support.
For a mood reboot, Glamour Magazine recommends shopping online through Give as you Live as one of their “8 Ways to a Happy Winter” by allowing you to go shopping without a) having to put on five layers and b) guilt.
More than £4 million has been raised for charity through Give as you Live. This year we have won several awards, including the Business of the Year Award from support site Smarta, and were named winner of the Institute of Fundraising Best Giving Platform of 2013.
Research commissioned by Give as you Live earlier this year showed that nearly half of UK consumers said they would spend more with a retailer if they donated to charity.
