We can raise money for GSA when shopping.
Ghana School Aid is registered with the on-line shopping fundraiser Give as you Live. There are two ways to raise funds through Give as you Live. First, you need to register with Give as you Live (www.giveasyoulive.com) . This will cost you nothing.
The first method for fund-raising while you shop is for you to log on to the GiveasyouLive website, you can then access one of the contributing merchants, eg. Tesco, M&S, Ocado, Aviva insurance, EasyJet, Europcar, Hotter shoes, the RSPB shop and many, many more, and a small percentage of what you spend goes to GSA. Whenever you wish to purchase something online, it is worth checking if you can do so via the GiveasyouLive website.
The second method is to purchase in-store shopping cards from Give as you Live. The cards are sent to you and can be reloaded at will. For example, if you buy a £100 shopping card for Tesco, you will raise £2.00, for M&S £3.00 and for John Lewis/Waitrose, £1.50. When you go to the store, you simply pay using your Give as you Live card for that store.
As you can see, a community of GSA supporters all contributing in either of those ways, could provide a useful small income stream for us. “Many a mickle makes a muckle!”
Please do have a look at Give as you Live if you use the internet and whether or not you do, please consider recommending it to friends and family who might be interested.
