Did you know that you can support the people of Haiti whenever you shop online, at no extra cost to you?
Here at Haven, we are delighted to have joined HelpFreely.org, a new platform which generates free donations to your favourite charities when you shop online.
HelpFreely.org invites shops and outlets to donate a percentage of what you spend online to up to three of your chosen charities. It costs you nothing, it’s really simple to get going, and it makes a huge difference to us.
Over 6,000 shops have pledged their support, so there are lots of ways for you to get involved. Some of those already partnered to the initiative include Ebay, Boohoo, Amazon, Groupon, Booking.com, Nike, Easons, O’Neills, Debenhams and many more.
You’ll find our Helpfreely.org page here, and, with just one or two extra clicks of your mouse, you can help us to empower the people of Haiti to build a bright future for their families.
So, how does it work?
There are three simple steps to get going:
- Register to Helpfreely.org using your email address or social media log-in
- Choose up to three of your favourite causes (including Haven, of course!)
- Sign into your account on the Helpfreely.org website or download the Helpfreely app.
Then, all you need to do is to get busy shopping!
If you choose to download the app, once you visit the website of a partner shop, you will get a gentle notification that you can raise funds through your purchases there: simply activate the app, and the donation will be made as soon as you make your purchase. It’s as easy as that!
Equally, you can search for the shop or the type of item you’re interested in through the Helpfreely.org website itself . When you find what you’re looking for, just click on the green ‘Shop and Help’ button to make your purchase. You can quickly look for all your favourite shops by clicking here.
The donations you generate are already included in the normal price of whatever you buy, which means you’ll always pay exactly the same as you would do if you weren’t a Helpfreely user.
As a registered user, you also choose what percentages of your donations go to your chosen charities; these are given automatically, meaning it takes just a couple of extra clicks in your online shopping experience to make a big impact.
You can always track the funds that you’ve raised or see the status of your contribution, and feel safe knowing that both the website and the app are completely free and secure to use.
We’re here to answer any questions that you have – just call Orlaith on 01 681 5442 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you have.
Your support is invaluable to us, so please do get involved – and happy shopping!
