What the charity thinks...
We've found Give as you Live very easy to get started and promote as a scheme to our supporters in order to encourage them to raise money for our patient care when they shop online. The bespoke resources and campaigns are really useful assets and help us to tie in the scheme with the seasonal shopping activity of our supporters, which really works during key shopping periods such as Christmas and peak times for holiday booking. It also adds another dimension to our social media activity, engaging with wider interests of our supporters that we might not otherwise without being a part of and promoting the scheme.
