You can now support us whenever you shop, through iStreet!
In a nutshell, iStreet supports carefully selected charities and not-for-profit good causes like us by harnessing the wonders of modern technology, they have over 1,200 retailers signed up to their platform who give a donation every time you shop online, and the list is still growing! Yep, when you get a sudden urge to ‘browse’ for new pair of shoes, do the weekly food shop, or even as you stealthily pick out people’s Christmas presents (we won’t tell anyone about the fluffy bunny slippers) YOU can help us to raise money to go towards our community work by shopping through Istreet. Neat huh!
How does it work?
It’s dead simple. The proof of this is we’ve already got people signed up as supporters (including members of our team) and have raised just over £120 so far – not bad at all, but we know there’s a LOT of RRC fans out there, so we’d be silly not to ask.
To prove just how simple it is, here is the 3 step guide to donating – in Hamish’s own words:
1) Sign up as a supporter of Red Rose Chain on iStreet
2) Once registered, go to iStreet’s ‘Shop’ page and click on the retailer’s site you’d like to visit
3) You will be re-directed to that site, shop as you normally would and when you check out the retailer will make a small donation which goes to Red Rose Chain via iStreet!
You can also see how much you are raising as you shop, and if you want, you can download their browser extension which means a little box will pop up each time you visit the page of a retailer that is part of the initiative – asking if you’d like to activate iStreet donations without even having to go through them directly.
So there you have it, if you want to sign up as a supporter, that would be amazing; the more supporters we can get on board who use iStreet on a regular basis the more we can put back into and expand our community work in a big way, doing something we all do anyway!
