Raise extra funds for WCS

Did you know that you can raise extra funds for the choir just by shopping online via thousands of retail store websites?   And it won't cost you a penny.   What?   How?

Many retailers that operate websites through which you can purchase the retailers' products are signatories to a scheme that means the retailer will donate a small percentage (typically 1-3%) of the purchase amount paid online by you to your selected charity.   There are several companies out there that handle this process in collaboration with the retailers but the two main ones at present are easyfundraising and Give as you Live.   Amazon operates its own separate scheme called Smile but the principle is exactly the same.  The amount raised by each transaction may only be pennies or perhaps a pound or two, but all the little amounts add up in the end. 

Please note that this process works currently only by using the retailer's website or connecting via the handler's website.   It does not work using a retailer's app that you may have downloaded to your mobile phone or tablet.   The software for this has not yet been developed to include it.  The exception to this is Amazon where its mobile app can connect to its Smile charity option.

Examples of other retailers who participate include Moonpig, John Lewis, Tui, ASOS, Debenhams, notonthehighstreet.com, Ocado, Sainsbury's, Tesco, the Sock Shop, MusicRoom, Expedia, booking.com, trainline.com, The White Company, Next and many, many more.

To get started with this, the first thing you need to do is open an account with one, an or all of these handlers and to link your account to WCS as the 'cause' to which you would like the donations to go.   Wimbledon Choral Society is already registered with easyfundraising, Give as you Live and Amazon Smile so there's nothing you need to do there.    Once your account has been set up and you've connected it to Wimbledon Choral Society on the platform(s) then all you have to do now is ... go shopping online!
