Online fundraising

It’s like nectar but instead of earning points, each purchase generates a donation. So instead of going directly to a retailer’s website, go to easyfundraising.org.uk first and choose the retailer you want to shop with – then everything you spend with that retailer earns a free donation for ACACIA UK. It’s completely free to use and your shopping won’t cost you a penny more.

On average, each retailer will donate 5% of the cost of your shopping – and those donations soon mount up. So whatever you need to buy, from your weekly grocery shop or fashion must-have, to your business travel, office supplies or mobile phone, buy it via easyfundraising and raise money for ACACIA UK at no extra cost to you!

Please register to supporting us when you shop online – http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/afcic.
