'Shop to Save Lives’ App launch
Next time you shop online you could help save lives
With the launch of our Shop to Save Lives app this month, SJA
has joined the ranks of charities such as Cancer Research UK, Save
the Children and Shelter in giving supporters an easy way to
generate donations from more than 1,800 online retailers.
By simply downloading
the App our supporters can do their normal online shopping with
retailers as varied as Amazon and iTunes to M&S and Tesco. In
turn the retailer will donate to St John Ambulance - at no cost to
the shopper. With no need to sign-up or share any personal
details, it really is as easy as ‘You shop. Stores donate.
SJA saves lives.’
“I really hope our staff, volunteers and supporters will
download the App and enjoy knowing that every time they shop online
they are helping SJA do more of what we do well - teaching people
to be the difference between a life lost and a life saved” says
Anthony Davison of the SJA Fundraising Team.
Providing more ways to shop and raise funds for SJA will be a
focus for fundraising throughout 2015 and a new page is soon to be
launched on the SJA website to promote other opportunities.
“We’re working with some great brands to negotiate discounts and
deals which will benefit our volunteers and supporters at the same
time as creating new income for the charity. It’s about
leveraging our strength as a charity, with an army of volunteers
and loyal supporters, to shop as usual - but with companies that
are going to help SJA financially” explains Anthony.
In the recent lead up to Valentine’s Day and with Mother’s Day
coming up in March we have also been promoting a partnership with
Flying Flowers whereby the company donates 10 per cent of every
purchase to St John Ambulance when shoppers use the promo code
“STJOHN” at checkout. The partnership is for a year so again
you can send flowers to a loved one whilst raising more money for
