Matt had a privileged and fantastic childhood. He owned his first car aged 3 (as pictured). And even then it was only 15 years later before he progressed to one with an engine! So this news piece explains how - without spending a single penny of your own money - you can help the children VWA support to have a brighter, richer childhood.
This is a really, really important initiative to our team personally as well as to our charity's projects but - don't worry - we are not asking for you to part with a single penny of your own money! So please take just a quick moment to read this through: you'd be crazy not to.

You might have heard of the scheme 'easyfundraising.org.uk' before but, like us, you probably did not realise how incredibly awesome it is! It will GUARANTEE that some of the world's most profitable companies will donate some of their profits to our charity simply because YOU tell them to!

This will cost you absolutely nothing, it will only take around 30 seconds of your time to sign up, it is ludicrously easy and straight-forward to use, and - most importantly - it will allow you to donate a percentage of the profits of corporations - such as Amazon, eBay, John Lewis, Argos, Marks & Spencers, Dominos, Currys, Tescos and literally hundreds and hundreds of others - to our charity; Volunteer West Africa (and our sister charity Partner West Africa).

Basically, when you sign up to the scheme, every time you buy anything online from these hundreds of corporations they will donate a percentage of the profit from that sale to our charity. It really is as simple as that. You need do nothing more than sign up. Its not a scam, they are huge and respectable organisation. If you don't have the time to do it now, please save this page and do it later. And, of course, please seriously encourage your friends and family to do the same. Together we can make a phenomenal difference to the lives of some very desperate but special children.

Our charity cares for vulnerable West African children, who do not have the same privileges and opportunities as many of us (including our CEO Matt, as pictured, had) the corporations above exist purely to generate profits. Please, please, please, therefore - especially with all that online Christmas shopping approaching - sign up and ensure that some of your money will go to a better cause than just corporate profitability.

All you need to do is:

1) Visit: easyfundraising's website
2) Click the green 'Create an Account' button in the top right of the screen
3) Select 'I want to support a good cause'
4) In the cause name search box type 'Partner West Africa' & hit 'Go'
5) Our charity will then appear at the top of the list of available charities.... click 'Support this cause'
6) Then you fill out the usual stuff, name and contact details etc, and you're registered! Simple. Job done.

The system works by automatically placing an unmissable 'easyfundraising' banner thereafter on every single online shopping website that you visit that is part of the scheme. If you buy anything from that website, it simply tells you how much the corporation or company are going to donate to our charity because of you. Obviously the more you buy the bigger the donation they make, but please don't worry. Just use it at every opportunity you can, however small the purchase. The small amounts add up very quickly here in Africa!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
Please, please get involved. Again, it costs you nothing and you will be changing, if not saving, lives.

Thank you.
