Raise funds as
you shop online
Help us raise funds as you shop online. Thousands of retailers will give us a donation every time you buy something from their website - and you don't pay anything! So, whether it's your weekly shop or your annual holiday - you could be raising a free donation for Schoolreaders. We've set up links with Easyfundraising and Give as you Live, so giving couldn't be easier.
The Easyfundraising idea is incredibly simple. More than 3,200 retailers are signed up to the scheme; each time you buy from them online (paying the normal price), the retailer passes a small percentage of their profit on to Schoolreaders. It's great news for us, so please sign up and encourage your friends to join too!
How do I sign up for Easyfundraising?
It's easy to sign up for free here: https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/schoolreaders/
Then every time you shop online, go through the Easyfundraising link and search for the retailer you are looking for. Easyfundraising will take you straight to the retailer's website and from then on your experience will be just as if you had gone there directly - except that you will be raising money for Schoolreaders.
Make it even easier by installing the Donation Reminder
Or, even better, you can install the wonderful 'Donation Reminder' on your computer - this means a box will appear if you are shopping with a retailer who participates in the scheme and you don't even need to visit the Easyfundraising site before starting your purchases. All you need to do is click on ‘Activate Donation’
Easyfundraising from your mobile
And if you're shopping on your mobile you can download the Easyfundraising App on to your mobile phone or tablet. Then you can not only shop on the move, you can also check your donation total and see how your donations to Schoolreaders are adding up.
Keeping emails to a minimum
Easyfundraising is always keen to keep in touch with its users, and lots of people love receiving their emails. If, however, you want to keep email traffic to a minimum, simply visit www.easyfundraising.org.uk, click on 'my account', then on 'change my preferences', and un-tick the email boxes.
