Raise £50 for charity – at no cost to you

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.

Nifty fifty

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.

Are you a member of the “£50 club” yet? Or have you got a story about how you raised your first £50 through Give as you Live? Let us know below.

    I am delighted to be on my second £50! I think it’s great you’ve chosen £50, as that is the benchmark I set myself too – last September when I started shopping through Give as you Live. Because of Christmas shopping, I had raised £50 for my first charity (Battersea Dogs Home) by January 2012. Now I am very nearly (£2 to go!) at my second £50 for Victim Support… It makes me feel great to do this on top of the other charity giving I already did.

    I haven’t tried this new tool but definitely will from now on. What a fantastic painless way to help raise monies for good causes. Here’s hoping I join the 50 club very soon.
