We’re all aware of the current recession and various prices going up, a lot of people can’t afford to give money to charity, or set up a monthly direct debit to help the cause they care about.
Despite the recession people are still shopping, still buying things they need and want. So why not swop your purchases from offline to online. Shopping online could raise donations for your chosen charity, without it costing you any extra.
A new mobile phone, a new pair of gorgeous shoes, or what about your summer holiday? All these things mean a lot to us, but they could mean even more for our charities.
