Give without paying
Believe it or not there are loads of fantastic ways you can raise funds for Refuge – at no cost to you!
Sending greetings cards to loved ones?
Every card from Cappuccino Cards includes a £1 donation to the charity of your choice. Select the card you’d like to buy, then choose Refuge from the drop down list of charities before adding it to your basket. Why not stock up now for upcoming birthdays, anniversaries and other occasions? http://www.cappuccinocards.com/
Using the internet?
Every time you search the internet, you could be raising money for Refuge - at absolutely no cost to you!
Everyclick is an internet search engine that donates 50% of the revenue earned on ‘clicks’ to our cause. Just go to www.everyclick.com/refuge and search the internet as you usually would. You’ll be raising funds without even knowing it! You can even make it your homepage.
Having a clear out?
Sell unwanted items on eBay for Charities and you can choose to donate a percentage (or all!) of the sale price to Refuge. Visit www.missionfish.org.uk for more information or click here to start selling your items for Refuge today.
Taking part in a sponsored event, or celebrating a family event?
If you’re taking part in a sponsored event for Refuge, you can set up a free online sponsor form at www.justgiving.com – making it even easier to raise funds.
You can personalise your page and share it with family, friends and colleagues who can sponsor you securely with a credit or debit card. No more chasing people for cheques or coins after the event! There’s also an automatic ‘ Gift Aid’ facility that can add an extra 28p in every £1 at no extra cost you or us.
You could also set a Justgiving page to ask for birthday, wedding or in memoriam donations to Refuge. And why not set one up at work and encourage colleagues to make a donation rather than sending Christmas cards? There’s even space on the page for people to add personal greeting messages.
Please share these ideas with family and friends. These are all great ways to support Refuge without it costing you a penny.
