With Easter approaching, it’s time to plan for the Bank holiday weekend and start amassing some Easter eggs! Buying chocolate cheers most people up, but if you can buy chocolate and donate towards a charitable cause at the same time then you’re sure to be feeling pleased with yourself afterwards. TheGivingMachine is a website that allows you to buy from some of your favourite shops, in this case ones that sell Easter treats, and make free donations towards causes of your choice. You could be tucking into an Easter egg and know that you’ve made a difference towards your local community too.
Some of the shops that you can buy through and are affiliated with TheGivingMachine are Hotel Chocolat, Thorntons and the Chocolate Trading Company. You can make a free donation of up to 6.8% of your total purchase at no extra cost to you, which will help to contribute towards a worthwhile cause. Sign up now and start making your donations.
