giffgaff means ‘mutual giving’, which means as you help us grow, the amount of Payback grows. This Payback has been the biggest ever with almost £2 million going back to our members. We must say a HUGE THANK YOU to our lovely members for all your hard work in recruiting new members, helping members in the community and just generally for helping make giffgaff Payback such a huge success.
Members earning Payback have the choice to take their earned Payback as credit, a cash payment (via PayPal) or donating it to the Community selected charities.
Many of you generously chosen to donate your money to this year’s Community selected charities – Great Ormond Street Hospital and Water Aid. We had triple (almost 36,000) the amount of members getting involved in the voting process compared to last Payback in Dec – absolutely amazing to see so many members getting involved. This time round, members donated £12.2k and with giffgaff matching the donation, we will be donating a total of £24.3k to our chosen charities.
If you still want to get involved, we’ve set up a JustGiving page for those that wanted to give a little something back, they’ll be open for a little bit longer. Find out more about how you can text in your donation here on Hazel’s blog.
Once again, a huge thank you to all of you who have helped giffgaff, we hope you enjoy your Payback. Let us know what you have been saving your Payback for and how you will enjoy it. It’s always great to hear how you’ve all been treating yourselves.
