2.     Visit easyfundraising every time you shop online then shop as normal by clicking out to a retailer’s site.

Easyfundraising testimonial

easyfundraising really helped me fund my expedition to Thailand! Raising a large sum of money seemed like a very daunting task, but I found that easyfundraising gave me the extra boost I needed.

Registering was so quick and easy it almost seemed ridiculous not to! It’s really good for my family to be able to support me for free by making one tiny change when ordering things online.

I felt really supported by the response I got when I saw how willing people were to help. I would definitely recommend other World Challenge participants to take full advantage of everything easyfundraising has to offer! It is so easy to share your story on social networks to let all of your supporters know how you are getting on and where their donations are going.

Another great feature is the free easyfundraising app – it’s really handy if you shop via a mobile or tablet and I was able to easily demonstrate how the site worked to my friends when we were just hanging out – I could just show them my phone and show them how they could help me!

easyfundraising  seriously helped me in reaching all my fundraising goals and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others!
