Donate to fund life-saving research

A bake sale, a text, a tax-free donation straight out of your monthly pay – who knew there could be so many ways to give to charity?

Cancer Research UK has decided to amplify this message in the lead up to Giving Tuesday this year.

The charity is inviting people to join the global movement on December 3rd and will be sharing daily reminders on social media of the ways they can help fund life-saving cancer research; from volunteering their time, to doing their own fundraising or even shopping via Amazon Smile.

The charity is also using Facebook’s social good tools to make it easier and faster for supporters to donate.

Nicola Smedley, director of individual giving and supporter engagement at Cancer Research UK, said: “Giving Tuesday provides us with a fantastic opportunity to remind people of the different ways they can support Cancer Research UK, and help fund the charity’s life-saving work to beat cancer.

“It’s also been great to collaborate with other charities and the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) to show the  breadth and impact of charitable giving.”
