Christmas Giving

Giving Fund

Christmas is all about giving.  Instead of sending Christmas cards, you can give the money you would have spent away as donations to causes chosen by your family and friends.

Here’s how it works:

  1. You make a donation to TheGivingMachine for the amount you want in your Christmas e-card Fund (we will add £2.45 to your donation amount to cover our processing costs *)
  2. We send you all the details and a Christmas e-card that you can personalise and forward on to all your friends and family which has all the details on what to do.  You can even share via Facebook and Twitter if want as well.

It’s that easy!

  • Your friends just click the link in your message to nominate the cause that matters to them (don’t worry there’s no obligation for them to sign up to TheGivingMachine and we won’t market to them).
  • On 10th January we distribute all donations to the causes chosen by your friends and family.

* Processing costs include, but are not limited to, costs we (TheGivingMachine charity) are charged to process your payment, the provision of materials for you to send to your friends and family, development and support of the nomination mechanism to allow your Giving Machine to receive nominations, resourcing the calculations and distribution of donations generated by your Giving Machine and finally the bank charges to send out all the donations.

Notes / FAQ’s

  1. We will only consider one nomination per user, per giving fund – any duplicates will be removed when we crunch the data
  2. We will crunch all the data in the first week of January 2017 and plan to distribute finds on the 10th January 2017
