With the Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas shopping season now in full swing, hair loss charities are taking the opportunity to remind people that they can raise money while they shop, free of charge.
For each sale made when a customer buys from certain brands’ websites, including John Lewis & Partners, Marks & Spencer, Argos and Amazon, accessed via the easyfundraising platform, a portion of the sale will be donated to the shopper’s chosen charity at no cost to them. It works in the same way as cash-back websites such as Quidco, but instead of the user getting money back on purchases, this is donated to a specific cause.
Other charities using this innovative method to raise money include Cancer Research UK, Age UK, Crisis and the RSPCA.
Other ways to help
Just in time for the season of goodwill, both Alopecia UK and the Little Princess Trust, which provides real-hair wigs free of charge to children with medical hair loss, are also spreading the word about other ways in which people can help their efforts. Continues below…
Little Princess Trust, which recently made the top 10 at JustGiving’s Charity of the Year awards, has announced its new fundraising packs are now available for both individuals and for businesses. These include details of what the charity does, ideas for events and sponsorship forms.
In addition to financial contributions, the charity also accepts donations of hair which can then be woven into wigs to give to children with hair loss. You can find out about the requirements for hair donors with Asian or Caucasian hair, here, and for those with Afro textured hair, here.
