Hi everyone, thanks for all your votes. Over fifteen thousand of you have cast a vote for giffgaff's Payback charity for the end of 2019. The vote is now closed, and the top two that you chose are:
Ealing Churches Winter Night Shelter
Here's how the total vote counts shook out:
|Ealing Churches Winter Night Shelter||4323|
|Whiteknights Yorkshire Blood Bikes||2570|
|Albion in the Community||478|
You've still got time to choose to give your Payback to charity - just head to My giffgaff and choose. We'll count up the Payback of everyone who's done so, split it between the two winning causes, and then match it, so they both benefit from the full amount.
Thanks everyone for your nominations and votes - some excellent causes that we be able to do great work with your donations.
Hi all, after our nominations this October, we're now ready to announce the shortlist of charities that the community has collectively nominated. Your shortlist for this Payback period is:
If you have Payback points to claim, you'll receive an email from Wednesday inviting you to vote for your favourite. We'll keep the vote open until 23:59 on Sunday, November 24th, to give you plenty of time to weigh up your decision and make your vote. You can only vote using your unique link, directly from the email, so be careful not to share it.
When the vote closes, whichever causes are in first and second place will share equally all the funds that members have chosen to donate to charity. We'll split it 50/50 between them, and then match it, so they each get the full amount.
Bear in mind a few things when voting:
- Once your vote is cast, you won't be able to change your mind, so make sure you're certain before you cast your vote.
- If there are multiple accounts registered to your email address, your choice will count for all of them that have earned Payback, so please make sure that if you run any accounts for family members or anyone else that you consult with them on what cause to vote for together.
- If you don't get the email for any reason, let us know in this thread before 23:59 on Wednesday 20th November, and if you're eligible to vote (ie, we can see you're a genuine giffgaffer and there isn't yet a vote cast on your behalf) we'll make sure you have your own voting link by that Friday.
If you haven't yet chosen to give your Payback to charity, you can do it right here. We've also got a feedback thread open for the charity process this year, so if you've got any thoughts on how it's gone or improvements you'd like to make, let us know.
