This is a great way to raise money for free, simply by shopping online through a website called easyfundraising (www.easyfundraising.org.uk). When you buy anything online (e.g. gifts, groceries, clothes, books, train tickets, holidays, etc.) you can raise a free donation for FoWS. There are over 2,700 retailers registered with easyfundraising, including Amazon, John Lewis, eBay and Argos who will donate a percentage (usually 1-2%) of what you spend to FoWS to say thank you for shopping with them.
Here’s how it works:
1. Sign up – go to http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/fowestwoodschool and click on the button to 'Sign me up'.
2. Shop – from the easyfundraising website, search for the retailer you’d like to shop with and click through to the retailer to make your purchase. This tells the retailer you came from easyfundraising. The price is exactly the same as if you’d visited the retailer directly.
3. Get a donation – after you've made your purchase, the retailer will give you a cash reward that easyfundraising turn into a donation for Friends of Westwood School.
No cost, no catch!
Please be assured that using the easyfundraising website will not cost you a penny. There are no catches or hidden charges and Friends of Westwood School benefit from any donations you make once registered.
To make it even easier, download the 'Donation Reminder' tool - a reminder will pop up* when you're shopping online with any of the easyfundraising retailers, just click and the retailer will make a donation.
*Unfortunately the Donation Reminder will not work with Amazon. To get donations when shopping on Amazon, save the following link in your browser, and use that link when visiting Amazon: http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/amazon/
