There are many ways in which we engage in fundrasing activities and of course, they all involve in as many ways possible our supporters and followers. Without which we would not be able to function.
Here are just a few ways in which you can get involved.
Use your phone and Text…….
We have the ability to receive donations direct from peoples mobile phones. Just text VETERANSUPPORT to 70085 and £1.00 will be donated direct us. Couldn’t be easier and takes seconds. But hold on, it doesn’t finsh there.
We are also able to claim Gift Aid on your donation, so once you have sent your text to 70085 you will get a follow up asking you for a few details. Again, this takes no time and means that your donation get’s boosted by 25% That can’t be bad.
This has been in peoples lives for quite a while and we are so grateful that people choose to support us with their birthday fundraisers. Of course, it doesn’t have to be your birthday, you can start a fundraiser anytime you like and for any reason.
Give as you shop online…………
This is something we would really like to make more use of, everyone shops online these days and we are signed up to a couple of schemes where when you shop, the charity get’s a donation at no cost you the customer. This is a total win all round and a great way to show your support.
One of the first schemes that we signed up for was Amazon Smile One of the World’s largest online shopping Companies. It is as easy as 1,2,3 this is what you do:
Browse to smile.amazon.co.uk Once there, you will be asked to login or sign up. If you have an Amazon account already, you can use these details.
Once logged in, you then need to choose which charity you wish to support. Of course, that will be Forgotten Veterans UK. Just type that in and you will find us.
Follow the on-screen instructions, takes seconds and you are good to go. You can do this from your phone, tablet or PC and if you bookmark the link and ALWAYS remember to go to SMILE.AMAZON.CO.UK
Another fabtastic scheme that we are a part of is the Easy Fundrasing Scheme This is similar to Amazon Smile but includes online shopping at 1,000’s of well known High Street names, some of which are your favourites. You can sign up to support us by using the following link – EasyFundraising Set up an account, again like all of these processes it takes no time and when you are doing some online shopping, just head to the link, login and browse your favourite online stores from there.
Standing Order Scheme (SOS)…….
You are able to setup regular donations via our standing order scheme. This more traditional way of donating is very popular and allows you to set an affordable amount and spread the cost over the year. Here are the details to set one up:
