Shoppers can make their Christmas shopping count by supporting their favourite charity or good cause for free while shopping online

The UK’s largest charity shopping platform, easyfundraising, is calling for shoppers
to do Christmas differently and make their seasonal shopping count this year.
Shoppers can secure valuable donations for their favourite charity or good cause for
free, simply by doing their usual Christmas shopping via the easyfundraising website
or app.

More than 8,000 brands are signed up to the easyfundraising platform with all the big
name brands on the platform including John Lewis, Currys, Apple, H&M and Marks
and Spencer.

Once a customer has bought their items through the easyfundraising website, the

This means platforms such as easyfundraising are more important than ever so

including Asos, the Perfume Shop and H Samuel.

James Moir, the CEO of easyfundraising, says: “Christmas is now around the corner
and soon we will be tucking into a tasty turkey and all the trimmings. Oh, and of
course, opening the presents we have been given from our friends and loved ones.
“Around £20 billion was spent last year on presents in the run-up to the festive
period, showcasing how important this time of year is and how crucial it can be for
charities and good causes if you choose to shop using easyfundraising.

“It won’t cost you a penny or add anything extra to your bill but could provide a
crucial lifeline to those good causes who really need the cash.

“Christmas is about coming together to make a difference. So, while the donation
you generate alone might not seem like a lot, added up it will make a huge difference
to your chosen good cause or charity.”

easyfundraising launched in 2005, raising more than £49million for charities and
good causes across the UK. It’s one of the country’s leading ways to support
grassroots charities and good causes.
