Raising Funds for SIAB Whilst You're at Home!

You can still fundraise for us, even if you’re stuck at home! Whilst there may not be events (like Home Farm Fest) to attend, fundraisers to set-up through your school, business or service group, or a sports event to take part in, it doesn’t mean there aren’t still ways to help! Here’s how:

Online Shopping – Easyfundraising

Whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be raising free donations for School in a Bag with easyfundraising

There are over 4,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation – including biggies like eBayArgosJohn LewisASOSSainsbury’s and M&S – and it won’t cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds!

All you need to do is:

  1. Just click HERE and join for FREE!
  2. Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first to find the site you want and start shopping
  3. After you’ve checked out, the retailer will make a donation to us at no extra cost to you whatsoever!

Online Shopping – Amazon Smile

Like Easyfundraising, you can be raising money for us when you use Amazon, too. With the amount of people using Amazon at the moment, that’s a lot of money that could come to us!

All you need to do is:

  1. Just click HERE and join for FREE!
  2. If you have a smart phone, download the app and just use this every time you shop (it’s exactly the same shopping experience, just we get money this way!)
  3. AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to us

There are no catches or hidden charges and we’ll be really hugely grateful for your donations 🙂

Help us when you’re celebrating!

Let’s face it, there still won’t be any proper birthday celebrations happening for a while. No big parties or nights out with your mates. So how about doing something a bit different, and setting up a Facebook birthday fundraiser for School in a Bag?! It’s really easy!

All you need to do is:
1. Just click HERE!
2. A pop-up will appear asking you to set the amount you’re aiming to raise and the end date you want (normally a week or so after your special day)
3. It gets shared on your feed and page automatically, and then you can share your link as far and wide as you like (everyone will be able to see it as it’s public, but only those with a Facebook account can actually donate).
4. At the end of your fundraiser, Facebook then send us the money directly, all of it 🙂

Why stop at just birthdays – you can set one up for an anniversary or other special occasions too!

Thank you in advance for helping us out this way. Even when we’re not in this current situation, millions of pounds are spent shopping online, and we can be benefitting from it! What may take a few minutes to set-up, will then be really quick and easy to use every time you then shop, yet raising hundreds of pounds.

Happy shopping, or indeed happy birthday!
