I've been registered for a while, and I've downloaded the toolbar. This is handy, because if I find I'm visiting a site which is affiliated to easyfundraising (such as B&Q when recently shopping for fluorescent light tube) it flags up a donation opportunity. I just click to donate, and if I make a purchase, Castledon get a percentage! In many cases this included reserve online and collect instore.
Loads of retailers we use every day participate - Argos, Amazon, Debenhams, House of Fraser, John Lewis, Pizza express, Play.com..... to name just a few. You can check out the full list here www.easyfundraising.org.uk/a-z-of-retailers/ And by signing up you become eligible to offers (I've been getting an email about once a fortnight which I don't find too intrusive).
Please take a look. It will cost you nothing, might save you money, and can help Castledon keep helping hounds.
I can confirm just how easy and worthwhile this is to do:
I got my house insurance quote through and decided to see if I could renew it through the same company via. easyfundraising and secure a donation to Castledon. It wouldn't let me renew it this way, so I just did a new quote with them and it came out £50 cheaper than i'm paying at the moment! ;D AND they also made a £5 donation to Castledon!
Just bumping this one up again. If you're planning on doing any of your Christmas shopping online, then please check this out.
You follow the link www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/castledongreyhoundrescue and register as a Castledon supporter. From there you can search for suppliers and go shopping - depending on the deal, Castledon get either a percentage or a fixed donation, but it costs you NOTHING, NADA, ZILCH!
I've used it quite a bit - in some cases you can reserve online and collect instore (from Argos and B&Q for example) and we still get a donation.
In our first month we raised over £20 with just a few people signed up. I'm sure we can do better than that over Christmas! I bought my niece a Kindle from Amazon and that clocked up £1.85. It's worth a look Thanks.
I just got an email through with some of the latest offers. If anyone's thinking of a National Trust membership with a view to exploring over the summer months, you can get 25% discount for paying by direct debit, plus 10% donation to Castledon!
Back in March, I did my motorbike insurance on the Bennetts website, via. easyfundraising. It said that they would make a donation to my chosen charity but as it was so long ago, I assumed that they weren't going to and so i'd forgotten all about it. Imagine my suprise today when I got an email through saying that they'd made a £10 donation to Castledon!
I'm hoping to get a dishwasher soon (birthday present from Mum!). That will almost certainly be ordered online from Comet or Currys via easyfundraising. I get what I would have bought for the price I would have paid.... only difference is Castledon get a bonus!
I love my dog better than most people I know. And the best people I know, I know because of my dog.
Just bumping this again - this is SUCH an easy and free way to raise cash for Castledon!
I've just renewed my home insurance and got a whopping £22.50 donation for Castledon! ;D
I just went onto the easyfundraising site and did a search through confused.com for home insurance, which in itself generated a 25p donation. I then went on to the website of the cheapest quote that confused.com had generated via. the easyfundraising site (in this case, Sheilas Wheels) Admittedly, I had to re-input all the info again but it was certainly worth £22.50 for an extra 5 minutes of my time!
Next time you're shopping online, why not give it a try?
If you're shooping online for Christmas presents, why not do it via the easyfundraising site and raise some funds for Castledon?
It's free and easy to do - you still get your items at the same price on the retailers website, with the only difference being that Castledon get a donation, too! All the big retailers are on there - Amazon, Argos, ebay to name but a few Castledon has raised £111 over the past year through easyfundraising ;D
