Many of us have favourite Charities that we support and we would like to encourage you to share ideas with others in the community, particularly if the Charity collects certain things: stamps, printer cartridges, etc. There are of course local shops selling fairtrade items, such as Shared Earth on Bold Street but we want to give you just some ideas of websites that you may not yet know about, that support charities. Some do not cost you anything but give a % of your bill back to the Charity of your choice.
Note that other charities and websites are available!
This is an online fundraising platform allowing users to shop at over 4,300 top stores and raise free funds for charity. The store pays Give as you Live a percentage of your total purchase price in commission and of this, 50% is passed on to charity.
