Shop your way to a cheaper gap year with easyfundraising.org.uk

Volunteering abroad is a once in a lifetime opportunity, offering amazing experiences and the chance to make a real difference, as well as looking great on your CV! With such a huge variety of options available around the globe it’s no wonder more people than ever are benefitting from seeing the world through some form of voluntary work. But financing this kind of trip isn’t always easy. That’s why many students are turning to easyfundraising.org.uk to help them raise the money they need.

easyfundraising turns your online shopping into donations - shop with any of the 2,000 retailers featured on the easyfundraising.org.uk website and for every purchase you make, up to 15% of the cost will be paid in to your fundraising account, at no additional cost to you. This means you and your family and friends can raise hundreds of pounds to fund your trip, in a short space of time, just by shopping.

Chances are, you’ll have a few things you need to get hold of before you set off anyway. So why not shop at the countless retailers on easyfundraising.org.uk and turn those purchases into valuable donations? There really is no catch.

It’s so easy. Simply register your volunteering trip as a cause with easyfundraising and start shopping. Spend £50 with Amazon, you’ll raise £1.25. Take a new mobile contract with Vodafone and raise up to £70. Do your weekly shop with Sainsbury’s and raise 25p each time. Need clothes for the trip? Fatface, Superdry, Gap, Dorothy Perkins and Topman are just some of the clothing brands you can shop with. Travel books? Amazon, Play.com and Waterstones are all listed. Sun tan lotion? Boots and Superdrug will have what you need. You can even take out travel insurance for the trip and raise money that way.

If you’re ready to start shopping towards your Frontier project, remember that your final project payment deadline is four weeks before your departure date. This means that any donations you receive through easyfundraising.org.uk will need to reach Frontier before that date to count. So register your project today and start making the most of your online purchases.

To get started, head over to our website and register your cause.

I always shop online via easyfundraising!! Great way to raise funds! Try it!"
