TheGivingMachine is a new way of making a charitable donation without direct cost to you, whenever you make an online purchase from one of the many shops that are part of the scheme.
Participating online shops pay TheGivingMachine a sales commission for directing shoppers to them.
TheGivingMachine then forwards these commissions as free cash donations to the shopper's chosen school or charity.
All you have to do is remember to 'shop and give' for free at TheGivingMachine. It really is as simple as that.
TheGivingMachine is a not for profit social enterprise that enables you to generate free cash donations every time you shop online. This innovative scheme is potentially one of the easiest, cheapest and most sustainable ways for UK charities and schools to raise essential funds regularly. It takes advantage of the rapid growth in internet use, while the UK's online shopping market grows year on year. And the best part is it is absolutely free for both Givers and Beneficiaries.
Online shops currently involved in this scheme include Amazon, Argos, Debenhams, Ebay, John Lewis M&S, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Next, Asda, Boots, House of Fraser, The Entertainer, Currys, Boden, Early Learning Centre, Waterstone's, ToysRUs, QVC, and several others.

This makes it even more important that we do...
