According to IMRG and Capgemini, UK consumers spent £114bn online in 2015 and estimates that 27% of all retail sales now take place online. But did you know that with easyfundraising.org.uk every time you order something online at almost 3,000 participating retailers, a percentage of your spend can be sent directly to MRBA and it won’t cost you an extra pence?
“I heard about easyfundraising from a colleague,” says MRBA Committee member Sue Robson. “I looked it up online. It’s so easy and quick to register. Many of the major suppliers we all buy from like Amazon, John Lewis, ebay, Argos, Asos, Sainsbury’s, Debenham’s, Booking.com, etc are participants. So before you make your next online purchase, visit the easyfundraising website and register. Then find your retailer – you can do this by a click through to the retailer’s website – to make your purchase. That way the retailer knows you are coming from easyfundraising. The price of your purchase is exactly the same – there is no cost to you. ”
“Last month, I got this very nice email from ‘Jenny’ at easyfundraising telling me that they had sent a cheque to MRBA for £295.74 just from our small number of supporters ordering goods they were going to buy anyway. They even have a ‘Donation Reminder’ button that you can click on when you are buying from one of their participating retailers so you won’t forget. Like their tag line says ‘it’s really feel good shopping.’ What a simple, stress-free and no cost way for MRBA to help more colleagues in need.”
