If you shop online at Tesco, Amazon, Selfridges, Mothercare, Clarks, Burton, Dorothy Perkins, John Lewis (among 3,000 other online retailers) you could be helping Safe Child Africa to raise vital funds every time you shop.
Sign up to one of the affiliate shopping websites (details at the bottom of this page) and as you check out the items in your basket, the retailer you are shopping with, will be contributing about 2.5% of your overall purchase price to the charity of your choice (which we hope might be Safe Child Africa!)
That might not seem like much, but if you use a website such as www.giveasyoulive.co.uk' every time you shop, that 2.5% quickly adds up and turns into a tangible gift that could buy emergency medical care for a child accused of witchcraft, or nourishing food for a week for a child who has been neglected.
