GIVE YOUR TIME

  • Charities really appreciate volunteers, especially at this time of year, plus it can be a great chance to meet new people. Why not see if an organisation near you needs an extra pair of hands? Check out our 5 great reasons to volunteer

  • Hospitals across the country need stocks to see them through the festive period, so donating blood can be a great way to give back to those who might need it. Find out more and search for your nearest venue

  • If you receive an unwanted gift, rather than hide it away in the wardrobe, why not spend time selling it and then donate the proceeds to a charity of your choice? Use our charity search.

HELP A STRANGER

Our latest CAF World Giving Index found that, across the world, helping a stranger is the most common way to give.

ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO GIVE

  • Why not post about your favourite cause on social media? You could raise awareness about what they do or simply tell them how great you think they are. It’s a free and easy way to support a charity during the festive season and an opportunity to say thank you for all the great work they do. Or you could join us on Facebook.
  • Does your employer have a charity partner?  If not, why not speak to your Corporate Social Responsibility team or HR colleagues about getting involved. Let them know they can contact one of our experts for help.

  • Why not do a good deed for someone?  From holding a door open to giving up your seat on the train, you could really make someone’s day. Don’t forget to tell us what you did on Twitter and Facebook.
