Did you know that people spend over 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook? If you’re one of them, why not do something good at the same time? You can now buy JustGiving Charity Gifts for yourself or friends on Facebook.
JustGiving Charity Gifts is simple to use. Just go to http://apps.facebook.com/justgivinggifts/. Click “allow” and then “See all gifts” to see the gifts you can give. Choose the gift you want to send yourself or your friend. All it takes is a minimum £2 donation – or more if you’d like – and your gift is ready to send.
When you buy a Charity Gift from charities including Marie Curie Cancer Care and Guide Dogs UK, your friend (or yourself) will get your charity’s badge (so a puppy for Guide Dogs, for example) and a message on their Facebook wall.
That means that in about 30 seconds and for less than the cost of a pint, you can spread delight to friends across your social network – and spread the giving to charities that matter to you.
You can also add a “Charity Gifts” tab to your profile, when you give a gift. The tab lets you keep track of which friends you’ve given gifts to and, as an added bonus, lets your friends know about virtual gifts so they can join in on the giving.
At JustGiving, we work to make it as easy as possible for you to donate to charities. There are more than 500 million active users on Facebook, with an average of 130 friends each. Imagine: if every user donates £2 to send a Charity Gift, that’s £1 billion in donations to important charities.
All in seconds and on a site you’re likely already using. What’s not to love? Get Charity Gift Giving now.
