Are you a Guiding unit? Do you use easyfundraising?

Because if you don't, you really are missing out on free money, ignore this if you don't help at a UK charity but do read it if you do!

My Brownies have been given just over £500 over four years and seeing that amount on our total made me want to make sure all the leaders from other units that read this blog are signed up too. I know I sound all salesy, but seriously, £125 a year is a boon for the unit.

By using the links on the easyfundraising site to visit online shops, a percentage of whatever your supporters spend with each retailer goes to you as a donation. So, when a supporter spends £100 with M&S online, they’ll raise £2.50 for you without it costing them any more than if they had gone directly to the site. Some donations can be as much as 15% of the purchase price. Purchasing with insurers like Direct Line, Churchill, More Than and Aviva will generate a one-off donation, I switched our house insurance a couple of years ago and earned £50 for our Brownies, but that is the single big amount we've had, mostly it is 20p here, 75p there but it all adds up.

It’s much cheaper for retailers to sell goods online than in the high street so they’re happy to pass part of the extra profit to your organisation as a donation.

Use this link http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/referral/679 to sign up for free. When you sign up via this link my Brownies will receive a thank you from easyfundraising for referring you. Don’t worry, this won’t affect the amount you raise and when you’ve signed up, you can introduce new groups and benefit in the same way.

We do use it but I so often forget to.

I signed up but don't really use it much either.
