Easy Ways To Support Us While Holiday Shopping

The holidays (and sales) are fast approaching! This is just a gentle reminder that you can help support Red Balloon while you do your online shopping this holiday season.

There are several easy (and free for you) ways to give while online shopping.

Easy Ways To Support Us While You Shop

  1. EasyFundraising– Sign up to easyfundraising, see your favourite brands and donate to Red Balloon whenever you shop. Easyfundraising partners with over 7,000 brands who will donate part of what you spend to a cause of your choice. It won’t cost you any extra. Create an account and sign up, select Red Balloon Educational Trust and shop as normal. Our case page can be found here: https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/rbet/
  2. AmazonSmileUK– AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support a charity of your choice every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop with AmazonSmile, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added benefit that AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to the charitable organisation of your choice. AmazonSmile is available at smile. Start at smile.amazon.co.uk and select Red Balloon Educational Trust as your charity of choice and shop as normal.
  3. The Giving Machine– Set up a Supporter account on ShopAndGive and then just visit the ShopAndGive website, desktop reminder or mobile app and click on the retailer link you want to shop at. Purchases generate a donation which will show on your account summary once processed by the Machine. Go to https://shopandgive.thegivingmachine.co.uk/, search for a shop and click out to them. Shop as usual!

All these sites allow you to raise money for us at no extra cost to you, meaning we get donations every time you shop!

We are grateful for any and all help from our supporters, not just during the holidays but all year round. This is just an extra and passive way to help us support young people while you do your everyday online shopping.

As always, if you have any questions about setup for any of these websites, please contact fmc@rbet.ac and we will be happy to help.
