This festive season, MARINElife have teemed up with a couple of charities to allow the public to provide us with donations while shopping online for gifts and cards.
Give as you Live is free to join and use, includes over 4,000 retailers (places like Argos, Amazon and Toys R Us), and supports over 220,000 UK charities. You simply choose the retailer you want to shop with and click "shop now". A percentage of every purchase you make will then be donated to your chosen charity.
So click on the picture and start shopping!
Don't Send a Card is a new site that combines an environmental idea with a regular Christmas task, card sending. You can use this website to quickly send e-cards, and give the cost of the greeting cards to a cause that you care about (like ours). Using it is a piece of cake, choose an e-card image, write a personalised message, and donate the cost.
Not only will MARINElife receive the equivalent cost of sending all those cards, family and friends will get an e-card, and see that you donated. It's a quick and easy alternative that helps reduces paper waste (a billion cards are estimated burnt/dumped after the holiday season!). A win for everyone.
