Whether you're buying a new outfit, flights, computer equipment or furniture, we'll have the right retailer for you!
Anyone who's been around me in the last year knows it's been a difficult time for me. But I've decided not to let it get in my way. This summer I have the opportunity to work at Blue Star Summer Camp in North Carolina.
I grew up surrounded by friends and family telling stories from the best years of their lives. And the setting was always the same - Blue Star. Although I was almost too young to remember, I went there myself as an unofficial camper when my parents worked there. Somewhere in the back of my mind, there are memories of the sun, and the rain; the mountains and the lake; and of the happiest summers of my young life. I can't wait to give this same experience to the children there this summer - but I need some help getting there. Flights to the States don't come cheap these days, so if you can donate even the smallest amount to help me, I would be more than grateful.
I have other fundraising projects in the works, and I've been saving money for a long time, but I can't do it alone. £400 would pay for the necessities like flights, insurance, and renewing my US passport, but if I surpass this goal it would be even better, as there are so many other things to pay for.
I've come up with a series of fun ideas that can give you a taste of camp to reward you for each amount donated, so the more you can give, the better your reward! Check the updates page for the list.
I can't wait to get there and start this adventure, and to help the kids with theirs.

Is there any cost to the challenger or to the cause?
No, GoRaise is completely free to use for challengers and causes. The only cost is to the retailer
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Will we end up paying more for goods and services?
No, you are not charged anything extra. You buy directly from supplier websites accessed via GoRaise so you pay the same as anyone else. In fact – our users are able to take advantage of many exclusive offers and promotions so you will often find a better deal with suppliers through GoRaise. If you have a preferred supplier not currently listed on GoRaise.co.uk, please let us know and we will help them sign up.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Which causes can we raise money for?
You can support any good cause, from small community groups, national charities or your own company foundations. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added very easily for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, company foundations, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
