Recently, we received a cheque from with a value of £20. This may not seem like a lot but with your help we can still raise more. The best thing, it technically doesn't even cost you a penny!
We interviewed our top donor about why and how she donated and when asked why she donated, she said:-
“Once I’d installed, it asks if you want to donate every time you make a purchase, and I thought why not donate?” 
Simply put, if you buy something online the browser extension will ask if you wish to donate to the charity of your choice. It doesn't cost you a penny extra though! Instead, some of the money you pay for your purchase is donated in your name. Although it doesn't donate huge amounts, if you were to use this every time you shopped it would certainly increase!
Our interviewee told us it worked with most of the sites she used, such as:
  • Amazon
  • Marks & Spencers
  • John Lewis
  • Argos
  • Ebay
  • Tesco Direct
So why are we talking about this website? Well as we mentioned before we received a small cheque recently however we want people to help us raise funds by using this site. You can read more by clicking here and follow the below guide to help raise money for BBHS Eco.
