RAISE MONEY WHILE YOU SHOP
If you buy anything online from major retailers like Amazon, Expedia, Marks & Spencer, John Lewis and Tesco, the Edinburgh Youth Gaitherin can receive a donation averaging around 2.5% of everything you spend. This doesn’t involve you paying any more, but you won’t be able to use any vouchers you have. Registering is easy…

Now whenever you shop with the right retailer, you will be asked if you want to activate a donation. This comes from the retailer – not from you! Helping out in this way will make a huge difference to a charity which runs on a shoestring budget.
