SUPPLIER FOCUS: A unique way to give to Charity
22nd July 2014
We've just come across another brilliant way for couples to help a charity of their choosing as part of their wedding celebrations...
When I first heard about Make-a-Donation, I wondered where the catch was, but Rosa explained it so well to me that I thought she should tell you all about it in her own words:
Who are we?
We are a charity donation site which brings together charities, fundraisers and businesses to improve our community - both on a local and a national level.
What is so special about us?
Make-a-Donation is unique in the fact that 100% of the money you raise goes directly to the charity of your choosing. This is unlike other popular donation sites who generally take around 5% of the money raised as fees and then an additional 1.3% for bank transactions. Although 6.3% doesn’t sound like much, that means that for every £100,000 raised, £6,300 will not go to the charity. By using Make a Donation, you can make sure that your charity gets every last penny, with no catches.
It’s our wonderful business partners that pay the fees for the charities, so that they can raise even more money. Businesses can then upload their vouchers onto our website, and these are rewarded to our donors and fundraisers for their generosity.
Our charity wedding gift list:
This gift list is perfect for all couples who want a feel-good factor and an ethical twist on the traditional wedding gift list. Many couples these days are already so well set up at home, that sometimes a wedding list becomes a little redundant. This gift list allows guests to donate to the couple’s favourite charity, in lieu of a wedding present.
The beauty of our gift list is that couples can support ANY charity they want - be it a national charity or a local cause close to their hearts, they just need to let us know who it is and that charity will get it! ALL the donations will go directly to their charity, cutting out any unnecessary pre-wedding hassle!
What’s more - when one of their guests donates to their list, we will reward them with MaD points, which they can then redeem for vouchers on our site. So couples will be able to give back to their guests at the same time!
It’s completely free to create and takes just a few simple steps to be on the way to the ultimate ethical wedding!"
