OCD-UK needs your help to work with even more adults and children affected by OCD in the UK.
For some, their your circumstances, mean they can not offer any financial contribution or participate in a fund-raising event for us, but the good news is that you can still help OCD-UK financially just by changing your online habits to support our charity.
We are often asked about other ways that our supporters can help OCD-UK but without necessarily donating more of their money, and the good news is there are lots of other great ways that you can support OCD-UK. We have compiled this list to offer just a few examples of where you can help OCD-UK without actually spending any more money, and some have the potential for you to raise hundreds of pounds a year for OCD-UK if you shop online anyway!
Please do let us know if you would like us to post you a summary of this list, or you may wish to download this PDF copy.
If you shop at Amazon, then you can help OCD-UK by simply visiting the Amazon website from the links on our website, like the button on the right of our homepage, or from the link on the 'How you can help us' menu at the top.
Every time you make a purchase, no matter what it is, OCD-UK will earn a donation commission at no additional cost to yourself! All you need to do is to visit Amazon through the links on our website!
When shopping online for anything from books, dvds, flowers, insurance, even holidays, please do so through the Easyfundraising website.
Easyfundraising is a shopping directory that features some of your favourite online stores, including Argos, Next, Tesco, Debenham's, John Lewis, Toys’R’ Us and hundreds of others. All you have to do is use the links on the easyfundraising site whenever you shop online and, at no extra cost to you, we'll receive a free donation from every purchase you make. It really is that simple!
If you shop at Waitrose please nominate OCD-UK as your chosen local charity by completing the nomination form found in store.
Three good causes receive a share of £1,000 every month from the Waitrose Community Matters initiative. The charities and community groups are selected by nominations from customer and Waitrose employees, so please be sure to nominate OCD-UK in your local store.
Another great way to raise funds for OCD-UK is by selling on eBay! Whether you're clearing out your clutter, or getting rid of that unwanted present, eBay can be a great way of earning some extra cash for yourself, and OCD-UK at the same time! Every time you list an item on eBay, why not donate a portion to OCD-UK!
Do you search the Web? Did you know you could be raising funds for OCD-UK with easysearch, a search engine with a difference!
When you search the Web with easysearch, you'll raise funds for us with every search you make. It's completely free to use and if you make just 10 searches, you could raise £20 - £25 a year for us. That's right! Simply search the Web and raise funds - what could be easier?
Saving and collecting your used stamps is another great way you can help raise a few pence for OCD-UK with no additional cost to yourself! All you need to do is save the stamps on postal letters that you receive, so before throwing your old envelopes away, remember to tear off the used stamp first and store them in a safe place until you have plenty to send to OCD-UK. We then sell them on in bulk to earn a few quid for the charity.
Nobody but us knows better that every penny counts! So if you work in or manage a shop or other public premises, then why not ask permission to place an OCD-UK collection box in your premises!
Should you have permission to place a collection box in a shop near you, then please let us know how many collection boxes you require, and which premises they will be placed in.
