Easy ways you can help
Do you shop online?
It’s so easy to buy the things you want online, without having to pass your door. But did you know that you can raise valuable funds for Revive MS Support while you shop, at no extra cost to you?
All it takes is a couple of clicks and, thanks to www.easyfundraising.org.uk, hundreds of online retailers including all the big names – John Lewis, Dell, First Choice – will support our vital work helping people affected by MS.
How it works
Easyfundraising provide a FREE service where you can shop with your favourite online stores and at no extra cost raise funds for Revive MS Support. Simply click on the link www.easyfundraising.org.uk, then the ‘sign me up‘ button and all you need to enter is your name, email address and a password. No other personal information is required and we, the charity, do not receive any details regarding what you purchase or from whom.
Easyfundraising have also made it much easier to remember with their ‘Find and Remind‘ toolbar. This way, when you’re shopping online, it will let you know that the retailer will make a cash back donation to us and all you have to do is click a few buttons!
Our current easyfundraising donations total a whopping £4,253.84 so it really adds up! You can shop with over 300 Brand Name retailers and to raise funds you just use the links first – it’s that simple! If you ALREADY shop online, why not help Revive MS Support at no extra cost from purchases you would make anyway?
Facebook Charity Giving
If you are a Facebook user and you have shared your birthday with them, you will usually get a notification a few weeks before your birthday asking if you would like to set up a wee fundraiser for your favourite charity. Revive is on this list, and you can help us to spread the word about our work by setting it up and sharing it with your friends and family. The birthday fundraiser asks for donations to support your charity as part of your birthday and the money gets paid direct to the charity. So far, in our first year, we have received over £6,000 so it is incredibly worthwhile to do, without having to even leave your home!
Experience feel-good shopping. Shop at smile.amazon.co.uk and choose Revive MS Support, and Amazon will donate to your favourite charitable organisation, at no cost to you. Get started today.

Anyone for SMARTIES?!
Did you know that a Smarties tube can hold up to £11 in £1.00 coins?!
Why not treat yourself to a tube of Smarties but don’t throw away the tube. Once you’ve finished – fill it with whatever spare change you have at any time and donate the contents to Revive MS Support.
Over the last few years Smartie eaters have helped to raise over £15,000 of vital ‘unrestricted’ funds to help Revive MS Support provide support for people affected by MS!
