We’re excited to share a great way you could contribute to JAM that won’t cost you a penny!
What is Give as you Live?
Give as you Live is an online fundraising platform that allows you to raise money for your favourite charity while you shop online. When you shop at one of the 4,200 leading stores via the Give as you Live website, a portion of your purchase goes to your charity of choice.
The donation amount varies from store to store but Give as you Live commits to giving 50% of the commission they receive from retailers to your favourite charity. Every time you make a purchase through Give as you Live they’ll email you within 1-7 days to let you know how much you’ve raised. You can support any of the 200,000 UK-registered charities, but we hope your consider JAM UK as your charity of choice.
Will your shopping cost more?
No, according to the Give as you Live website you’ll see the same price as you would if you’d visited the store’s site directly. The money that is donated to your cause is a commission that the retailer pays Give as you Live for directing a sale to their website.
