Regular Waitrose shopper? Nominate us in store!
The good people at Waitrose & Partners donate a portion of money between three different charities each month and, best of all, customers decide who they'd like to support. So far, they've generously donated over £35 million to good causes. We would love for Hearing Dogs supporters who shop at Waitrose to nominate us at their local store.
Whilst the green token scheme is currently suspended, shoppers simply request a Community Matters application form when they next shop, fill it in and submit it at the welcome desk for Hearing Dogs to be considered as one of their next chosen charities.
We know our volunteers and supporters can wax lyrical about their favourite charity, but here's some suggested wording to get you started with this worthwhile and potentially profitable microvolunteering task:
"Help our Paws Appeal be a fantastic success by spending a couple of hours at one of our collection events. You'll meet other supporters and dogs as well as play a key role in fundraising, gaining new supporters and highlighting just how amazing our life-changing hearing dogs are. You can also nominate Hearing Dogs at your local supermarket that operates a token scheme and help us get chosen for support!" - Gaynor Cavanagh, Community Fundraising Manager
Join our Facebook Marketplace!
Created in 2020, our Facebook Marketplace is a great virtual marketplace for our supporters to buy and sell homemade and general items to raise money for Hearing Dogs.
This summer our Marketplace is being held between 31st July until 2nd August via our Hearing Dogs Community group on Facebook.
To access our Marketplace and join in the fun, whether it be through selling your own items or placing bids on some homemade goodies, follow this link to our Hearing Dogs Community Facebook page.
If you want to discuss anything in more detail then please email our Community Fundraising Manager, Rachel, on the following: email@example.com.
Let us know what you've been up to!
Every bit of microvolunteering helps deaf people leave loneliness behind and reconnect with life, so do shout about what you've been doing on social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) and get our attention @hearingdogs and @volteamhdogs.
You can download, print or share this certificate. Take a selfie or post a photo. Whatever way you want to tell or show us how you've microvolunteered is a good way!
Remember to use the hashtag #TeamBurgundy and we'll repost the best examples of microvolunteering in action.
