Now you can give to ASSIST while you shop!

Do you need a last minute present for someone? Can’t face the crush at Meadowhall? Why not do it online and raise money for ASSIST?

ASSIST will get £5 for every person who signs up to “Give as you Live” by clicking on the link below (after they spend £10 online).

Give as you Live brings together thousands of stores that have signed up to donate a percentage of every purchase made online to ASSIST without charging you a penny more.

You click on the retailer you want to shop at, and because they track how you got to that website, they give between 1-6% of your total spend to the charity you choose. All the major stores are registered e.g. Amazon, John Lewis, B&Q, Argos, Play.com etc. Retailers give different amounts, for example, Play.com gives 3% whereas Amazon gives 1%. But it all adds up for us!

If you use Google Chrome, you can add Give as you Live as an extension so it will work in the background making it even easier to raise money. This means you don’t have to download the programme or remember to sign in to give as you live. Click here for the link

Try it out. It only takes a few seconds and ASSIST can get at least £5 for every new shopper who spends £10.

To make sure you can find us easily on their charity list, type in “ASSIST Sheffield” and then you will find us on page 2 of the options that come up.
