“Before you stock up on snacks for a watch party, you should make sure you’re using the easyfundraising platform, so you don’t miss out on a donation to your favourite cause or charity”.

“It doesn’t cost the consumer anything, but it ensures their chosen cause gets some much-needed cash”

Using easyfundraising is simple: just visit their website, find the cause that you'd like to support and then make a purchase with any retailer on the platform to raise a free donation when you shop.

  • Tesco: Up to £3 donation

  • Just Eat: 2% of your purchase goes to a charity or good cause of choice

  • Ocado: up to 5% donation

 No matter who wins on Wednesday, your favourite charity can also take home their own trophy – in the form of a bit of money, when you buy your takeaways or food and drink using the easyfundraising platform. 

It’s easy to do and the great thing is it won’t cost you a penny. You can enjoy the euros and let your good cause benefit too!
