EASY FUNDRAISING

 

Did you know - when you shop online, you can donate to Headway Shropshire automatically, without it costing you a penny?

 

Welcome to the Easy Fundraising scheme.

 

Here’s how it works:

 

Most of the big retailers have signed up to the scheme. When someone buys online, the retailer donates a small percentage of the purchase price to the buyer’s chosen charity. There are 2,700 retailers to choose from, including all the big names like Amazon, Argos, Ebay, Tesco, John Lewis and Marks & Spencer to name just a few.

 

“Your donation doesn’t cost you a penny!”

 

Your donation is made by the retailer (each retailer has an agreement with Easy Fundraising), and doesn’t affect the price you pay – so your donation doesn’t cost you a penny!

 

Why not start today?

 

It’s really easy to get started. First of all, you open an account with Easy Fundraising (click the link).

 

Then you have two choices for donating:

 

  1. You can visit http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk, choose the place where you want to shop from a list or search box, and you will then be redirected to the retailer’s website where you buy as you normally would.
  2. If you don’t want to be bothered with going to the Easy Fundraising website each time you shop, you can download a little Donation Reminder button for your browser. Then you just shop online as usual but when you are about to buy from a retailer in the scheme, the Donation Reminder button pops up on screen and you simply click it to activate the donation!

 

In this way, you can donate to Headway Shropshire (or any other cause you choose) completely automatically whenever you shop online – and it won’t you a penny!

 

GIVE A CAR

Giveacar is another great way in which you can help raise some much-needed cash for Headway Shropshire to help people with a brain injury.

 

Do you own or know anyone who owns an old banger that’s hanging around gathering dust? If so then now’s your chance to do your bit for charity! We are asking you to clear out that scrap vehicle and crunch it for cash!

 

Giveacar is a UK based fundraising organisation that specialises in donating unwanted scrap cars to charitable causes throughout the world. Headway Shropshire is now one of the many charities who can benefit from this service.

 

Giveacar provide a FREE service which is available throughout the UK.

 

Unwanted cars are collected free of charge by Giveacar and either sold through an online auction, or (depending on age and condition of the vehicle) disposed of in an environmentally friendly way at an Authorised Treatment Facility. Proceeds from the sale are donated to the charity of your choice. Even a ‘banger’ being scrapped can still provide Headway Shropshire with between £40 and £160 if you select us as your charity.

 

Since Giveacar was set up in 2010, it has raised more than £1,000,000 in donations. We ask you to consider using the scheme if you have a vehicle that is old, unwanted and unused your support would raise us money & would make a difference to us.  Go to the Giveacar Website for more information.
