A Leighton Buzzard-based charity dedicated to helping vulnerable children has teamed up with a free service called easyfunding which allows good causes to benefit when people shop online.
The system was established in 2005 and so far has raised more than £10 million in donations.
KidsOut has been bringing fun and happiness into the lives of disadvantaged children since 1990.
Thanks to seven committed fill-time staff, the charity provdes days out and workshops for children affected by domestic abuse, whether they themselves have been ill treated or they’ve witnessed it happen at home.
Fundraising plays a major part in KidsOut success.
Spokesman Stewart Moulds said: “easyfunding has the potential to really help us meet our goals.
“The additional funds will help us provide more support nationally and will really make a difference to the day-to-day work of our charity.
“We’d urge anyone interested in helping us to visit the easyfundraising site while doing their shopping.”
easyfunding spokeswoman Caroline Adams said: “We are so glad to have been able to help KidsOut and we’d like to thank everyone who took the time to donate through our site for this cause.
“Local charities are extremely important in the community and without funding it would be difficult for their important work to be carried out.”
> More than 2,700 online retailers are available via easyfunding.org.uk. They include Amazon, John Lewis, M&S, Asda, Tesco, eBay, Ticketmaster and many more.
A donation reminder tool helps supporters raise up to five times more.
