There are now so many different ways to fundraise, from the traditional bucket collection to text donations. Charles, a digital and social media marketing student, has created an innovative website which allows individuals to donate to Children on the Edge by simply doing a spot of online shopping.
BrightSearch.org works when individuals visit the site and search for a retailer or the name of a product that they wish to buy. The website hosts over a hundred retailers including big names such as Ebay and Amazon. Once you are on the retailer’s website and purchasing your goods, a percentage of what you spend will donated to Children on the Edge. It really is as simple as that.
When Charles noticed a lot of cashback sites popping up he had the idea of creating a charitable version. Working with two partners, BrightSearch was created in just over a year. The next big decision was picking the right charity to benefit from their first fundraiser. Charles specifically wanted to support a children’s charity, and after a little searching he found, and fortunately took a liking to us.
“I wanted to find a children’s charity that didn’t have thousands of social followers” explained Charles, “Children on the Edge looked perfect as it was small and looked very dedicated to all the good they are doing”.
The team at Children on the Edge would like to say a big thank you to Charles for all his wonderful support. To help Brightsearch develop and gain donations simply visit brightsearch.org when buying online. Happy shopping!
