Yesterday Carl Reavey made an appeal "for supporters of the Islay Natural History Trust (INHT) to help them raise funds at no cost to yourselves". The trust needs your (financial) support badly for the upkeep of the visitor centre, to help protect the natural history on Islay and to be able to organise many events and talks throughout the summer season.
Besides donating money or becoming a member of the trust there is now a new way you can help to raise funds, and you can do so at no cost via Easy Fund Raising. Now how does this work? "Easyfundraising provids a free service where you can shop with your favourite online stores and at no extra cost raise funds for any charity, good cause or group you choose to support. You still shop directly with each retailer as you would normally, but simply by using the links from our site first, each purchase you make will generate a cash back donation to the cause you wish to support, instantly raising money for them. For example, make any purchase from Amazon and 2.5% will be donated. Insure your car with Aviva Car Insurance and raise Â£26.00, or purchase a mobile phone from O2 and earn Â£17.50, and so on. You can shop with 2000+ brand name retailers and to raise funds you just use the links from Easyfundraising site first - it's that simple!"
Here are three easy steps to help the trust:
- Register at the Easyfundraising website here
- If you want to buy online go to Easyfundraising first
- Choose the Islay Natural History Trust as your charity after you've made a purchase
