Back in November of 2015 nearly 26% of our members who voted on the payback charity vote identified Shelter UK as the charity who resonated with them and was near and dear to their hearts. Thanks to this vote and your fantastic generosity Shelter UK received £40,755 from giffgaff this past December. They were able to put this money to good use by supporting 944 families across the UK they would not have been able to without your generosity.
giffgaff’s support for the charities you choose doesn’t stop there. During each payback cycle we get in contact with the 3rd place charity and start a dialogue about how we can support them via in-house initiatives. At the beginning of May over 20 giffstaffers took to the road to bike from Marble Arch in London to Amsterdam for the benefit of the Royal British Legion.
With the most recent round of payback charity voting having wrapped up a few weeks back it means that Alzheimer’s Society and Claire’s House are the beneficiaries of your payback donation, which giffgaff has matched, and will be receiving £23,564 each.
As ME Research UK came in 3rd place during the recent payback charity vote it means that we at giffgaff will be carrying forward the banner and looking at ways to raise funds for them. If you have any ideas as to how we should go about doing so, please share them in the comments below.
Thank you again to everyone who has nominated a charity, voted, or intends to donate their payback to these very worthwhile causes.
