Do you shop at Sainsbury’s? If so, read on to see how your weekly grocery shop can transform lives in sub-Saharan Africa!
We’re absolutely delighted to announce that we have developed a partnership with Sainsbury’s to support our every day fundraising. Everyday Fundraising is an easy and straightforward way for you, our supporters, to raise money for The Zuri Project Uganda. Sainsbury’s have created an account for us and provided us with Everyday Shopping Cards that are then used in Sainsbury’s stores to purchase goods, much like you would use a gift card. Here’s the exciting bit – for every £1 that you spend in store on your card, Sainsbury’s will donate 4p straight to The Zuri Project Uganda! It takes 2minutes to register the card in your name and get you set up with an account. All you have to do is make sure your card is topped up before you go shopping, and then it can be used in Sainsbury’s stores across the UK to buy most items (exclusions do exist). You will still receive your nectar points, and it costs nothing to sign up, it’s completely free to yourself and the charity!
Currently, eleven people have signed up to use the Everyday Shopping Cards to support our work in Uganda, and we have already raised £50 to support our projects. Because we are a small charity, this income will go such a long way to supporting many of our on-going projects, as well as allowing us the opportunity to develop new partnerships with other local NGOs and deliver new projects, that will work towards improving the lives of people in impoverished rural communities. We will then be posting updates and blogs online so you can see directly how your shopping is making a direct difference to people’s lives! For example, at the end of this month, we will be supporting 30 local farmers to participate in an agricultural training workshop, which will be part funded by the money we have raised so far through Everyday Fundraising.
This really is a fantastic opportunity for you to make a huge contribution to the lives of people in Uganda, and it is completely free! You can check out our portal here:
If you are interested in signing up for a card, or would like some more information about how it works, or even how the money you raise will be spent, please send me an email – firstname.lastname@example.org – and i’d be delighted to talk you through how it all works. We can also put you in touch with people who are currently using the cards, who would be happy to show you how easy it is to use.
Thanks again for your continued support, and I very much look forward to hearing from you.
