The Myotubular Trust Easyfundraising eStore raises donations for the charity everytime a purchase is made there. The store has now raised a grand total of £1,429.21 for research into centronuclear and myotubular myopathy. If you haven’t heard of Easyfundraising before, you can see how it works in the short film below.
With Christmas fast approaching, The Information Point asked The Myotubular Trust to tell us why the donations are so important. Mel Spring, Communications Officer at the Trust said:
‘We are incredibly grateful for the regular donations that we receive via Easyfundraising and to those who support us this way. We love that donations come to us at absolutely no extra cost to our supporters, and by doing something that many of us do on a regular basis – online shopping. We were impressed at just how quick and easy it is to register and that you can even set up a reminder that pops up whenever you shop with a store that is registered with the scheme. The money that is raised on Easyfundraising is used to fund research and whilst each individual purchase may raise anything from a few pence to a few pounds, when several people join forces and register to support us, it really can make a difference. Please do consider supporting us this way – there’s no better time to register than in the lead in to the festive season when many of us become more frequent online shoppers.’
