Hi giffgaffers,

 

It's an exciting time, you are in the process of receiving your hard earned Payback. As you may know, the official two Payback charities that were voted for this period are NSPCC and PDSA. If you didn't select charity as your chosen Payback option but would still like to show your support to these causes you may donate via JustGiving.

 

The details to donate to each charity through JustGiving are as follows:

 

National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC)

Text "GGNS99 £1" to 70070 to donate £1

Text "GGNS99 £5" to 70070 to donate £5

Text "GGNS99 £10" to 70070 to donate £10

 

People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA)

Text "GGRS99 £1" to 70070 to donate £1

Text "GGRS99 £5" to 70070 to donate £5

Text "GGRS99 £10" to 70070 to donate £10

 

 

Remember to make sure that you have enough credit if you are planning to donate in this way, and you can donate this way from any network. 

 

Well done to all who have shown support to charities this Payback period, you deserve a pat on the back Smiley Happy

 

Regards,

Christian

@christian_boops! The instructions are under the wrong headings. If one texts to GGNS99 one gets a thank you text from NSPCC and visa versa.

 

I double checked on the just giving page and they are the right way round there.

Not a big deal as both such good causes but for the sake of accuracy...

 

Cheers, Poppy

I've donated 20% of my payback to one of the "losing" charities from the recent vote - the one I nominated. So it won't appear in any of the payback charity stats that giffgaff come up with (either directly through payback, or via JustGiving), but it did happen.

 

By the way, well spotted, Poppy, finding that mistake. Smiley Happy

Thank you Poppy, that has been rectified.

 

Sorry for the mix up to anyone who has donated so far. Seems to be only a few. If you'd like us to reimburse the donation to the correct charity that you intended then please send me a PM Smiley Happy

 

Well done to everyone who has already donated. Great work.

Thanks for posting. Both great charities, difficult to choose which one to donate to. Really good idea to have this Just Giving page, texting is easy too. :-)

Despite my chosen charity not coming in the top 3, out of the kindness of my heart I have still just donated to both charities.

Looking forward to seeing the grand total :-)

Just checked the pages this morning - NSPCC has hit the £100 park and PDSA has hit the £75 mark. Very generous of everyone :-)
