Mums For Good – Give As You Live

Brit Mums for Good - Give as you liveI have been itching to tell you about this one for aaaaaageeessss but have had to keep it under wraps as it’s not just me but the Entire Country that could get involved.

I was asked by Brit Mums back in March to be a Mums For Good Ambassador and work closely with Give As You Live to shout out a very important message…

Did you know we spend about £50 billion pounds online between us all?

A staggering amount of money which is likely to grow and grow as we become more used to this easy and convenient way of shopping but listen to THIS

Did you know approximately £1.25 billion pounds of that money that we’ve already forked out is potentially available for UK causes as unrestricted revenue?

Brit mums for good shoppingYes, that £1.25 billion pounds is just sitting there waiting to be directed to a worthy cause and that is my mission. I don’t know about you but I hate passing by the bucket holders at supermarkets, train stations, in the high street or ignoring the charity letters that drop through my letterbox but times are tough and there is a limit to how much you can give away and how frequently you can put your hand in your pocket.

Preschool frequently have very admirable causes which we take part in, our local community effort to help Aaron’s American Adventure and then there’s Comic Relief, Sport Relief, Pudsey Bear they all add up and at some point you have to draw the line, I know it’s miserable but sadly necessary.

However now you too can donate and guess what it’s not going to cost you one penny more than you’re actually spending because all I’m asking you to do is click on my page and download the Give As You Live app. It will install itself on your browser and every time you shop online, a little box will pop up on your screen asking if you want to donate the commission of your sales. Click yes and carry on with your shopping knowing that you are tapping into that £1.25 billion pounds of your money and donating it to a charity of your choice.

I have already donated 68p with only my online shopping and I haven’t got started yet!

After shopping you will receive an email to let you know you have successfully donated x amount. Nice touch!
