There are only 22 days left until Christmas and, if you’re anything like us here at MS-UK, you’ll be wondering what on earth to buy for your loved ones.
If that’s the case, listen up. Today is known as Cyber Monday, a term coined in the US for when retailers have huge online sales in a bid to get us all clicking and, if you plan to nab some bargains, you could help raise money for MS-UK at no extra cost – what’s not to love?
Retail giant Amazon runs a scheme called Amazon Smile and, if you sign up and choose MS-UK as your nominated charity, they will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) to our charity, providing MS-UK is selected as the beneficiary.
This means that by just shopping normally, you will be generating money that allows us to continue to help people with MS live happier and healthier lives, through our services such as the MS-UK helpline, Counselling, New Pathways magazine and our wellness centre Josephs Court.
