Easy Fundraising - raise money for PLOS while you shop onlineDid you know you can help raise money for PLOS from the comfort of your laptop? We’re a member of Easy Fundraising which means you can help us to raise money while you shop online. Over 2,700 well known retailers, including Amazon, John Lewis, eBay and Tesco will donate a small percentage of what you spend to PLOS to say thank you for shopping with them. From your weekly grocery shop to that payday treat, every time you shop online you can potentially help to raise money for our wonderful society.

So here’s how it works.

  1. Start on the Easy Fundraising website: Let’s say you want to buy a book from Amazon. Instead of going straight to the Amazon website you go to the Easy Fundraising website or you can use the Easy Fundraising toolbar
  2. Make a purchase: You click from the Easy Fundraising website through to Amazon to make your purchase. The price of the book is exactly the same as if you’d visited Amazon directly
  3. Get a donation: After you have bought your book, Amazon will make a donation to PLOS as a thank you for shopping with them. Easy Fundraising collect these donations on our behalf and it costs you nothing!
