Turn every £1 you spend online into funds for Parkinson's UK
14 June 2012
We've signed up to an exciting new scheme which allows you to
raise funds whilst doing your everyday shopping online.
The scheme, run by
Give as you Live, means that every time
you shop online at sites like Amazon, Tesco and John Lewis, we will
receive a percentage of everything you spend as a donation - and it
won't cost you a penny.
How does Give as you Live work?
Getting started is simple, all you need to do is download Give as you Live to your desktop for
free, selecting us as your charity.
Thousands of stores have signed up to donate money to Parkinson's UK when you shop with them online.
When you next visit your favourite store's website, a Give as
you Live message will pop up to let you know you can raise funds
The website will automatically calculate a percentage of the
total amount you spend and donate it to us directly. You'll also be
able to get great offers from leading brands by signing up.
Even if you don't regularly shop online, just by registering and
shopping just once you can do your bit. As an added bonus Give as
you Live will donate £5 to us for every person that signs up and
spends their first £10 online.
