Oh the joy of moving house… all sounds very exciting doesn’t it? Until that is, like many I found myself with a busy job and far too little time on my hands to do that all important shopping.
I was excited at the prospect of being able to buy lots of new furniture and bits and pieces for my lovely new home. But not the thought of trudging around all the shops, the endless browsing and carting heavy bags around filled me with dread, and I was quickly running out of time too.
So a visit from the lovely Suki from Give as you Live was most welcome when she came to visit me at the Cystic Fibrosis Trust in April. She talked me through a simple App which took no time at all to download (and didn’t hijack my homepage too!); it almost seemed too good to believe, that I was able to raise much needed funds for my favourite charity with only a few simple clicks.
Later that night having easily downloaded the App I started to search for my new purchases on line and found lots of great options of where I could shop, at the same time as making money for the charity, which I felt so very passionate about too. Once I started using Give as you Live I was soon convinced how quickly and easily I could increase my donations with practically no effort. By the end of the weekend I had raised a whopping £230 for Cystic Fibrosis, donated by the retailer at no extra cost to either myself or the charity.
I know how much difference this will make to help provide the care and support for much needed families, my chosen charity can now continue to ease the burden to thousands of people suffering with Cystic Fibrosis across the UK.
I am now on a mission to raise as much more as possible to cover basic things like the cost of an annual prescription for someone with Cystic Fibrosis. £104 covers the cost of all those awful drugs and medication that need to be taken daily by just one person. The thought of having to take 60-80 tablets daily is dreadful and this is the very least I can do. I’m going to have so much more fun now that my shopping will make a contribution to the funding of their great work and plus I will have a lovely new home too.
Now I think twice before picking my keys and credit cards up to go off shopping, and simply save myself time and make money fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. It’s Give as you Live for me from here on!
You should try it too… Please help us to carry on caring.
