What's more you don't need to go through a special link or use a particular search engine; once you've done a super-quick, one-minute installation, you can just go about your life online as usual, with a subtle reminder of the good you're doing.
Sound good? Well, get started with Give As You Live, then!
Oodles of major online retailers, including Waitrose (who stock our Grooming Products too, *cough*), John Lewis, Marks and Spencer, the Disney Store, Tesco and thousands more - even Amazon! - donate a percentage of each sale to the charity you've chosen, every time you buy from them. You pay the same amount you always would and the retailer makes the donation, so everyone wins.
The average Give As You Live user raises around £25 a year in extra donations for their cause. With more Christmas shopping still to be done, that amount could be considerably boosted at this time of year - and just four supporters signing up could mean an extra £100 or more for us to spend caring for some of the 16,000 dogs in our care.
£100 could mean any one of the following:
- One dog neutered and vaccinated
- Three sets of vet fees
- Five sets of vaccinations
- Twenty large packs of dog treats for training
So, while you're finishing off your festive shopping, please take just a few seconds to sign up and install Give As You Live first, and you'll know that at the same time as stacking presents under the tree, you're giving the gift of tender loving care and a great future to a Dogs Trust dog.
