The 'easy' way to help...

We would like to introduce to you a way of raising funds for our organisation at no cost to yourself. All it requires is a little bit more effort on your part when making purchases online.

There is a site called http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/. This site has partnerships with hundreds on online retailers, including the big ones like M&S, PC World, Apple, ebay, Match.com, Amazon, Play, all the major travel websites plus hundreds more. If you access these websites through the easyfundraising website, a percentage of any purchase you make (typically from 0.5% to 6%) is donated to a charity of your choice.

What you need to do...

  • Visit http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/. Register with them, when you do this I recommend that you opt-out of receiving their daily emails!
  • Then select your charity, I commend the charity 'Kesed Church - Care for Cambodia' very highly.
  • Then, next time you intend to buy something online, visit the easyfundraising website and link to the retailers website from there. The cut for the charity will appear on your account on the website within a few days. This then gets passed to the charity you have chosen every quarter.

It really is that simple!

They also have a sister website called easysearch. This is an alternative search engine. With every internet search you make, a donation of 0.5p is made to your selected charity. If you'd like to use this feature then bookmark http://kesedchurchcfc.easysearch.org.uk/ and use it as your regular search engine.

There are currently only a very small number of people participating in the scheme but last year we received c. £300 from easyfundraising. With your help we can maximise this income stream.
