Free money! Sounds too good to be true doesn't it... Seemingly not. I know parting with your hard earned cash is not always the easiest thing to do especially when you already have so many responsibilities and outgoings but what if you could donate whilst doing just your day to day shopping?
Have you heard of Easy Fundraising? No, me neither not until just the other day. Turns out that Easy Fundraising is a website that (kind of) directs you to the website that you want. All you need to do is go to easyfundraising.org.uk to begin with and then select where you need to go - Tesco food shop? Suits from John Lewis? Lego from ToyrsRus?
Each time you do this and purchase something from the required site then The Turning Tides Project gets a small contribution at no additional expense to you! I understand that it is only a small donation but if everyone were to use this then eventually a difference will be made and we can keep making music and art accessible to the masses!
One of the issues with this little scheme is remembering to actually use it before you buy something - but they seem to have that covered too. You can download a toolbar to use in your browser if you like or just set Easy Fundrasing as your Homepage so that it is always your starting point!
Anyway... spread the word! Peace out :~)
