GoRaise is a new fundraising platform that enables people to raise money for their favourite cause every time they shop online. It has already signed up over 2000 retailers and plans to reach £500k in donations by the end of the year.
In July, the organisation celebrated its launch by partnering up with the Campaign for National Parks to produce a powerful social media campaign.
The initiative was run as part of National Parks Week and managed to attract over 20,000 people, creating a surge of new supporters.
It urged people to celebrate National Parks Week by purchasing their outdoor gear via retailers on the GoRaise platform. By shopping online through GoRaise, users can raise money for their chosen cause – with retailers “donating up to 15 per cent of the purchase price to a charity or cause of their choice”.
Tony McDougal, Communications and Stakeholder Engagement at the Campaign for National Parks, said: “We were delighted to work with GoRaise over National Parks Week to help promote our glorious treasured landscapes and to guide people to support our campaigning work through shopping online. We would really encourage people to sign up to GoRaise and shop online to raise funds for us.”
