When you shop for essentials or gifts, you could help us raise funds, at no extra cost to you!  

Shopping Online

Amazon Smile, Give as You Live and Easyfundraising donate a percentage directly to Sight Concern Worcestershire every time you purchase. Best of all it is free to use, costs nothing extra and the retailers donate.

Give as you Live

Give as you Live is an award-winning fundraising platform for UK charities, helping people raise money through their everyday online and in-store shopping.

They work with thousands of charities from multinationals to local volunteer-run causes. Their success stories include schools, churches, scout/brownie groups and sports clubs. They work with 4,200 online retailers and also offer in-store shopping cards for dozens of retailers. You can find retailers for everyday shopping and gifts, booking a holiday and ordering office products. As a “thank you” for sending sales to them, the retailers give us a reward – we pass this onto the charity of the user’s choice.

To sign up create an account for yourself by following the link https://www.giveasyoulive.com.

Sign up for free, making sure that you select Sight Concern (Worcestershire) as your chosen charity, select your stores and then shop. Any purchases through the site allow Give as you Live to donate to Sight Concern from the commission they earn from the retailers. It costs you nothing more so why not sign up and start giving.
