Hi all,

 

Voting is now closed as of 18:00 May 29th. The two winning charities, which will now be the official Payback charities for this period, will be announced soon.

 

Thanks,

Christian

 


 

Hello giffgaffers,

 

As we approach June we’re getting closer and closer to that time where you get to decide what to do with the payback you have accrued over the last 6 months. 

 

There have been loads of different charities nominated and as usual we have short listed your top 5 below, which will go through to the official voting stage. You can find out more on each charity by clicking on the names:

 

 

As we did last time, we will be splitting the amount between the top two charities voted for by. Don’t forget that giffgaff will match pound-for-pound the amount donated through Payback. We’ll also open JustGiving pages for the winning charities, so if you'd prefer to donate a portion of your payback, rather than the whole amount, you’ll be able to do so (please note that JustGiving donations will not be matched).

 

The vote is open until 18:00 (6pm) on May 29th 2014, so you have two weeks to vote and we'll update you regularly on how the vote is going.

 

 

How to Vote

 

In order to vote you need to click the link from the email that we will send to you. The link is specific to you as it includes a code that tells us that you have an active SIM and that you haven't already voted.

 

The codes for voting are being emailed to all members with an active SIM who have opted in to receive marketing emails. If you have opted out of these but would still like to vote then please check your newsfeed, which appears on your 'My giffgaff' page under 'Messages', if you cannot find it here please contact an educator via PM and we will get an email with your code sent out to you. Please remember that the emails and newsfeed will take a little while to arrive, so give it a day or two.

 

Happy voting,

 

Christian

I am *over the moon* to see that there is a charity for M.E on here!!!!

 

espeically as someone who has lived for the condition for many years now, even as a very fortune one who is not bedbound. This condition takes years to disgnoses and has oh so little research so unsurprisely no cure and little treatment. fingers crossed for it!

Hah, I've just PM'd an educator...then read the last bit about waiting a day or two for things to appear....Ooops! Excellent top five, I think it is difficult to choose just one charity from them *gets thinking cap on*

My nomination got through Smiley Happy that's awesome!

But all are deserving charities, so it's going to be a tough choice!

So long and thanks for all the fish payback!

@radable yeah, you've just got to wait for the email titled "Choose your charity for Payback", and there's a personal link for you to use to select your charity Smiley Happy

Hi,

 

Yes, this thread is to inform you all of the top 5 charities that will be included in the official voting and give you a chance to read up about each one before making your decision, as well as some information on how to vote.

 

If you are opted into marketing emails you should get an email, it may take a couple of days.

Thanks  mattsmith100 & christian_b!

 

Ah, just got the email. Now it all starts making sense.

 

It was just a bit odd to read through two posts & lot of sentences only to find out.... that I should wait Smiley Happy

(Ok, i was skim-reading...  just making the point, maybe the message was spread a bit thin Smiley Wink )
