You may have seen a few £50 notes here or there, or received an email or two telling you some of the ways you can raise £50 for your charity.
You may even have filled out one of our cards pledging to raise £50 for charity through Give as you Live.
So where has our £50 figure come from? Read on to find out.
Of course, there are many ways Give as you Live shoppers can raise that £50 – and although it’s definitely achievable with a one-off splurge in Selfridge’s, it’s not necessarily what we’d recommend! Of course, we also flag up our top buys of the week, which can also get you most of the way there in one go.
But really, the £50 target is all about regular giving. A few pence here and there really does add up. We look carefully at what our shoppers raise for charity, and the average sum is £2.10 a month, across our entire user base – including those who rarely shop online. Active shoppers can raise a lot more, so we think £50 is a great first target for anyone who shops online.
