We’re excited to announce our new competition, #shareasmile, and we want YOU to get involved to raise money for a cause that means a lot to you. Here at easyfundraising, we like to make things as easy as possible for you, so if you have a Facebook or Twitter account, you can enter the competition. Easy!
We’re asking you to #shareasmile with a cause or charity of your choice. Simply take a photo of your lovely, smiling self, share it on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #shareasmile, and tag @easyuk and your special cause for the chance to WIN a prize donation for that cause. Or why not get inventive and create and share a smile you’ve made for your chance to WIN.
The cause that gets the most mentions will receive the easyfundraising donation, so choose your cause carefully. Maybe you want to support a local sports club or school event, or maybe you want to thank a charity for looking after a family member when they were ill and needed looking after? Perhaps you want to help your local community or give money to a much-loved animal shelter? No matter the cause, if it means a lot to you, #shareasmile.
The competition closes on the 3rd November, so don’t wait around… Get your camera at the ready and let us see your smile!

Here at easyfundraising, we’re excited to announce the launch of our fantastic new competition, #proudparent. It’s so easy to get involved and raise money for a charity or good cause of your choice, so listen up!
Here’s what you have to do…
Being the proud parents that you are, we want you to share your favourite and most-loved photographs of your children on Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtag #proudparent. Remember to mention @easyuk in your tweet, tag easyfundraising in your Facebook post or alternatively post your photo to the easyfundraising Facebook page.
So that you’re not struggling to choose from the hundreds of photos you have, we’ve narrowed it down for you slightly. We’d like you to share a photo of your child accomplishing something great. Maybe they’ve just learned how to ride a bike or taken their first steps; perhaps they’ve participated in a sponsored run to raise money for charity or won an award at school – whatever your child has accomplished, we’d like to know about it!
Win a £200 donation!
What’s more, once you’ve shared your photo, you’ll be in for an amazing chance to WIN £200 to donate to a charity that’s close to your heart. So get scrolling through your camera roll and pick out your favourite photo of your child – one that really makes you proud!
We’re always trying to make a difference and help out good causes, charities and organisations and we’re glad that we have your support too! What’s better than sharing a photo of your child’s achievement and donating to charity? So have a think about which charity you’d like to donate to. If you’d like a little guidance, browse through our registered charities and good causes here to help you decide.
Good luck from all of us at easyfundraising. We can’t wait to see all of the entries! You have until Monday 6th October to enter, so don’t hang about!

If it’s time to renew your car insurance or you’re buying a new car (lucky you!), make sure you buy online via easyfundraising. You’ll get the best prices when you buy your car insurance online and there are big donations available too! All the big car insurers are on easyfundraising.
Take a look here.
All the big names
Just by way of example, here’s how much you could raise for your favourite good cause when you buy your car insurance online via easyfundraising:
If it’s not your time to renew, why not set yourself a reminder to use easyfundraising? That way you won’t miss out on a big donation.
Here’s what Andrew, one of our shoppers had to say:
“I’ve got a great deal on car insurance and raised money for my chosen charity at the same time by going through easyfundraising.org.uk to buy from Confused.com.”
More big donations
There are lots more must-buy purchases like home insurance, utilities, TV and broadband, travel and holidays that can also raise big donations.

As a little thank you for all their hard work raising money, we recently gave World Challenge supporters the chance to win a £200 voucher to spend at John Lewis. All they had to do was raise a free donation by shopping via easyfundraising!
The winner is…
Congratulations to our lucky winner, Chris Macey! Chris has been raising funds via easyfundraising to support his Word Challenge expedition to India since March. Along with the help of 10 supporters, Chris has already raised almost £100 towards his trip!
Chris said: “easyfundraising is a great and easy way to raise funds towards my World Challenge expedition next year.
By registering with the website, many of my friends and family have purchased things that they would have bought from the same online retailers anyway – most of the big names are part of the scheme – and it all chips away at the total cost of the trip without them having to put their hands in their pockets. (Which means I can still ask them to support me in various other activities that we’re doing to raise the funds).
It took a little time to explain to them about the trip and how easyfundraising works, but the response was really positive. By doing this early on, it has meant that the contributions keep coming – even out family holiday this year qualified for a contribution.
The vouchers are a real bonus, and because John Lewis sell such a wide variety of goods, I can use them to purchase some of the kit that I’ll need before we set off for India next summer.”
Well done Chris from everyone at easyfundraising, and all the best for your trip next year!
Start raising free funds!
You can support Chris’s challenge too or register your own challenge and start raising free funds now, simply by shopping online via easyfundraising!
Starting today (August 18th) easyfundraising will be hitting the streets of Manchester with a special selection of golden envelopes. Each envelope contains a donation of up to £50 for a charity or good cause you care about; all you need to do is find them!
For two weeks, our team will be taking the #hiddenfundraising campaign to Manchester, hiding gold envelopes across the city for you to find. From Spinningfields to the Arndale, they could be anywhere.
Keep checking our Facebook and Twitter for clues on where to find our gold envelopes. Your donations could really make a difference, so watch this space!
Do your bit with #hiddenfundraising
As dedicated fundraisers, we’re always looking for new ways to help others. Each year we work with over 2,700 big name brands to raise money for deserving causes. We’ve currently reached over £7 million in donations and can’t wait to see this total get even higher.
If you’re in the Manchester area, keep your eyes peeled. A little flash of gold could be one of our special envelopes!
If you’re lucky enough to pick up one of our donation envelopes, tweet about it with #hiddenfundraising. We’d love to hear who you’re helping out.
