Give While You Shop

Raise money for the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, at no extra cost to you, when you shop online

There’s a simple way your purchases can benefit the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust without costing you a penny extra.  It’s called Give as you Live.

 What is Give as you Live?

Give as you Live is a shopping and price comparison website with a heart. You can shop at thousands of leading online retailers and a percentage of every purchase you make will be donated to us, to help support our vital work conserving the precious properties and treasures in our care.

 The way it works is that retailers pay a commission each time a sale is made to a customer who has come through Give as you Live. Depending on the store, this varies from 1% to 5%, or even more in some cases.  

How it works

2.      Click on the ‘Sign Up’ button in the top right hand corner and create your account
3.      Search for and select Shakespeare Birthplace Trust as your chosen cause
4.      Search for the retailer you would like to shop with and it will take you to their website
5.      Continue with your purchase

That's all there is to it
