Donating via Localgiving costs BRR around 6% of your donation, but saves us greatly as it administers all the gift aid. You can give a one-off donation, or give monthly. #GiveMe5 is Local Giving’s latest match fund initiative. They will double 1,000 x £5 donations made during a 24hr period. If you donate £5 to BRR on one of these dates via Local Giving your donation will be doubled.

On-line purchasing – Step one is to visit http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk and you will see a box marked ‘Create an account’ on the home page. Click on that and you will be asked to enter an email address and a password, and then register Bristol Refugee Rights as your ’cause’. If you are already registered for a different cause you can add Bristol Refugee Rights as a second cause if you have a second email address. Step two happens when you want to buy something from one of the suppliers affiliated to the scheme (the easyfundraising website lists all 2000 of them). You go into the easyfundraising site and log in, then you click on the site you want to buy from, e.g. Amazon, from within the easyfundraising site. You make your purchase as normal and the supplier will then make a donation to Bristol Refugee Rights. You will receive an e-mail in due course from easyfundraising notifying you of the amount (this can take from a day or so up to 30 days – even from the same supplier).
