While I usually use our easyfundraising link when purchasing from the likes of Amazon or Argos, I had an email from Margaret Crookston (our fund-raising guru) today that mentioned she had shopped around for new home insurance via easyfundraising and in the process raised £30 for the church while at the same time saving herself some money. It really is that easy to make your pennies go a little further and support the church when purchasing via easyfundraising with no extra cost to ourselves.
Here's my appeal:
I'm helping St Andrew's Parish Church Blantyre to raise money whenever I shop online - could you do the same?
It's very simple - just visit http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/standrewsnblantyre/ to register and shop with over 2000 well known retailers like Amazon, Argos, M&S, eBay and many more. Whenever I buy something, the retailer makes a donation to St Andrew's Parish Church Blantyre. They've helped other causes raise over £2,000,000 so it really does work.
I'd be really grateful if you could use easyfundraising too. It won't cost you a penny extra to shop through easyfundraising and you can even save money with special offers and voucher codes.
Plus, if you register before 1st May you'll automatically receive one entry into a free prize draw to win an Apple iPod Touch complete with Sony docking station worth over £450 - all courtesy of Viking!
So please make a difference to St Andrew's Parish Church Blantyre and take a look at easyfundraising today - http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/standrewsnblantyre/
Please give it a try and make a link to the sites you often use through easyfundraising a normal part of your routine. That's all it takes.
[UPDATE: I arranged pet insurance through John Lewis via easyfundraising this evening! There is a huge range of retailers.]
