Shop online and raise funds for Downright Special

ALREADY shop online? Why not help us at the same time?

There’s now a new and easy way for you to help us raise funds for Downright Special - simply by shopping online! is a shopping directory that features some of your favourite online stores, including Ebay, Amazon, Interflora, Easyjet, Apple Store, iTunes, NEXT, Boots, M&S, British Airways, Debenhams, John Lewis, Dell, Toys’R’Us, HMV and over 600 others. All you have to do is use the links on the site whenever you shop online and, at no extra cost to you, we'll receive a free donation of up to 15% from every purchase you make. It really is that simple!

It’s completely FREE TO REGISTER and use and you still shop with each retailer in exactly the same way. Many retailers even offer additional discounts and money saving e-Vouchers when you shop using easyfundraising.

All you need to do is visit and register selecting Downright Special as the organisation you wish to support. You still shop direct with each retailer as you would normally, but simply by accessing your chosen online shop from the links at first, each retailer will make a CASHBACK DONATION of upto 15% to Downright Special.

Will I pay anything extra? No. You pay exactly the same prices as if you visited each retailer's website directly. Using will not cost you a penny more than you would pay normally.

It seems very generous, but remember when you buy online costs are much lower. As there's no shop, salesperson, heating, electricity, rates, not even the cost of the bag to put your goods in, retailers are more than happy to help good causes when 'online' customers access their websites through the links on them.



As a charity we rely on the vital support of generous people and their fundraising in order for us to do the job that we do.

There are many things that you could do to help us in our fundraising efforts and all your help will be very much appreciated. Why not download our fundraising pack to find out more ways to help? (click here)

You could:

  • Organise a raffle
  • Do a car boot sale
  • Have a coffee morning
  • Do a sponsored challenge:
    • A sponsored bike ride
    • A sponsored walk
    • A sponsored sky dive
  • Or something less physical like a sponsored silence

You could see if your place of work, or any business, would make us their chosen charity for the year.
Ask if any businesses would fund match an event you have organised.
Last, but not least, you could just make a voluntary donation.
Either sign up to Virgin Money Giving or download our  single sheet sponsor form or multiple sheet multi-sheet sponsor form.

There are other ways you can help too:
• Volunteer your time for any supermarket bag packing events we might organize.
• Donate prizes for future raffles.

We are extremely grateful to everyone who has already helped us by fundraising and we look forward to hearing from new fundraisers.
