How does it work?

With "Give as you Live" you can shop online (or instore using "Cards for Causes") with over 4,100 top stores, and without spending an extra penny a percentage of your shop will be donated to Our World Educational Trust.

​Where does the money come from?

Retailers pay "Give as you Live" a commission each time a sale is generated for them through the "Give as you Live" website and they pass at least 50% of this on to the charity of your choice.

When shopping online you have two options:

1. Visit the "Give as you Live" website, find the retailer you want to shop with and continue with your shop as normal.

2. Set up a donation reminder. Once you have created an account with "Give as you Live" you can install a donation reminder directly into your favourite internet browser.
