Donate as you shop online
You can donate to the Race Equality Foundation as you shop online by registering with Give as you Live, an online shopping plugin that allows you donate to charity for free when you shop online.
How does it work?
Give as you Live works with 3,612 online shops to donate a commission to charity on every online purchase you make. This commission is already included in the price of what you’re buying, so we can receive your donations, at no extra cost to you.
Give as you Live are also currently running a refer a friend offer, so if you sign up using the link below, then for every £5 you raise for (any) charity, we will be given an additional £5 for ours:
