How you can help raise funds for Waltham Forest Parent Forum
Do you shop on the internet? If so you can help raise funds for the forum and it will not cost you a penny. All you have to do is use www.easyfundrasing.org.uk when you search for a retailer and shop online. Waltham Forest Parent Forum is registered as a cause that you can make a donation to and we would be extremely grateful if you would choose us as the cause you would like to donate to. Just register as a user and shop as you would normally do online. There are loads of retailers who you can shop with using this website and all donations raised through www.easyfundraising.org.uk will go to developing the forum and supporting parents and carers of disabled children. Remember: It doesn’t cost you anything!
How it works
www.easyfundraising.org.uk is a FREE service where you can shop with your favourite online stores at no extra cost to raise funds for any charity, school, good cause or group you choose to support. You still shop directly with each retailer as you would normally, but simply by using www.easyfundraising.org.uk each purchase you make will generate a cashback donation to the cause you wish to support.
For example, spend £25 with WH Smith and 3.5% will be donated. You will have raised £0.88, at no extra cost to your purchase. Make any purchase from Amazon and 2.5% will be donated. Insure your car with Direct Line and raise £35.00, or purchase a mobile phone from O2 and earn £17.50, and so on. You can shop with 2000+ Brand Name retailers and it is a very simple site to use.
Will I pay anything extra?
No. You pay the same prices exactly as if you visited each retailer's website directly. Using the service will not cost you a penny more than you would pay normally. If you ALREADY shop online, why not help good causes at no extra cost from purchases you would make anyway.
How much can I raise?
Up to 15% of every purchase is donated, depending on which retailer you select and what you buy. The exact donation that will be paid is displayed directly next to each retailer listing. With some categories such as mobile phones and insurance there is a cash value. If a retailer offers more than one donation, or if there is any special information about the retailer, please click the image
The service is easy to use and it's completely FREE. To start all you have to do is register and donate to Waltham Forest Parent Forum. Then just remember to use easyfundraising.org.uk next time you shop online!
Other Fund Raising Activities
In August 2009 Ashley Stevenson (Vanessa's nephew) and his friend Matt Merrick organsied a sponsored leg wax to raise money for WFPF. Not only was this the first time they had done something like this, it was also the first donation that WFPF received to support activities. Ashley and Matt raised £250 for WFPF from their very painful stunt and this contribution to funding WFPF activities in 2010 / 2011 was gratefully received.
