After a long Bank Holiday weekend, Girls ‘n’ Gadgets are back and we’re celebrating the wonderful women in tech. Over the following week, we will be bringing you profiles and tips from some of the finest UK based bloggers and startups.
Our first lovely lady is Amanda Lord who is the Managing Director at ’Fund it Frog’ :
Want to see more money going to your favourite Charity? Get Frogging!
Few of us have cash to splash at the moment but this is a Frog that can squeeze a charitable donation out of the money that you have already decided to spend: on a holiday, clothes, wine, gifts or gadgets.
Whether its Cancer, Homelessness, Children, Animals, Eco or Development that you feel is most deserving, or even a small local project you’d like to see succeed, you can send money their way just by remembering to route your shopping (through all the usual shops like Apple, Dell, Ebookers, even Tesco (although not groceries) and some great designer outlets via www.funditfrog.co.uk.
The frog is the brainchild of Amanda Lord, a self-confessed gadget-addict, who realized that the various commissions paid to internet and other middlemen on all the stuff we buy everyday could go to a better place! She hooked up with business partner Geoff Hughes to build a site that not only looked good and worked beautifully, with lots of terrific features to improve people’s everyday online shopping experience, but also used the commissions paid for their traffic to fund charitable donations to the causes each individual shopper cares most about.
So what are you waiting for? Every time you buy something NOT via the Frog, that’s money NOT going to charity– and you know the charities are hurting at the moment! We have made registering and setting up a Fund super quick and simple, and then you can get on with the shopping…. in a good cause!
