    With Give as you Live, thousands of your favourite online stores will donate a percentage of whatever you spend online – all at no cost to you. For instance, Amazon will donate 1.5% of the value of your purchases to us! It’s very easy to use and all you have to do is register with Give as you live!

    You can donate 10–100% of the value of your items for sale and, in return, eBay will refund you a percentage of your listing and final sale fees. So you pay less to sell and we get a donation as well. Win-win all round!

    Even easier, visit our online store and buy our beautiful cards and calendars with designs donated by Amicus Botanicus.

    Become a fundraiser

    Our supporters have organised all sorts of fundraising events in the past and we would love this to continue. Whether it’s a tea party or climbing Mount Everest, we are truly grateful to our supporters! The possibilities are endless, so if you have an idea to fundraise on our behalf, please let us know!

    Don’t forget Gift Aid!

    If you’re a UK taxpayer, you can also donate Gift Aid on your item. For every £1, raised we can claim an extra 25p from the government – making your efforts even more valuable. It’s easy and at no extra cost to yourself. Make sure you register for gift aid with JustGiving, eBay and PayPal when making donations, or you can get a form here: Gift Aid.

    Raise awareness for us

    Raising awareness goes hand and hand in with fundraising, so letting people know about what we do and who we help is so important driving forward. So, if you know anyone or an organisation who would be interested in what we do, we would be happy to get in touch with them with more information by post, email or telephone. You can get involved with our social media channels, so you can stay up-to-date with everything that’s happening throughout the organisation; you can share Gardening Leave with your friends, family and work colleagues.
