Win £500 by sending a hug to someone you love and shopping with heart via Kindred #shopwithheart

We have an amazing giveaway opportunity for our readers today via Kindred; both to win £500 to spend at some fantastic retailers and to make sure every single time you spend money online you are giving something back by learning how you can shop with heart (affiliate link). You can spread a little love with this giveaway by sending a positive note to someone with our wonderful posters; designed by my 15-year old daughter.

Every entry to this giveaway donates £1 to KiddyCharts which we will then pass to our partner charity. That means if you enter you are giving. If we reach 1000+ entries, Kindred will DOUBLE the donations!

03/03: The winner has been drawn for this by the promoter and informed: V. Franklin

How to enter to win £500

My talented 15-year old daughter has designed two wonderful posters, to go along with the thank you keyworker poster she designed last year that has been viewed 46,000 times! All you need to do is:

  1. Download one of the wonderful colouring sheets now that my daughter created for you to get creative with the kids (click the link here or scroll down to the circular image below),
  2. Download Kindred to your browser on your laptop or desktop so that next time you shop at their retail partners, you can earn money for your chosen charities. We are all shopping online much more at the moment, so why not do so with kindness? The best thing about this part of the giveaway is that Kindred will donate £1 to us, so we can pass this to our partner charity for every person that adds Kindred to their browser via this giveaway. If we reach 1000+ adds, Kindred have agreed to DOUBLE their donation up to 10,000! Let’s make this VIRAL so we get some excellent results for our charity.
  3. Get your kids to colour in one of the designs (you can colour one yourself too, it is VERY therapeutic!),
  4. Share your colouring on social, saying who you are going to give your colouring to and why including the #shopwithheart hashtag and copying @kiddycharts and @kindred_social. The handles for Kindred are here for you: Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. KiddyCharts are @kiddycharts everywhere: Twitter, Facebook as well as Insta! You can, of course, share on social with the person that needs a hug using this hashtag, or give the colouring directly to friends, family, or a special keyworker such as a teacher or your fabulous bin people,
  5. Add the link to the social post you have made in the comments section on this article , and finally

    Note: Make sure we can identify your social posts (for step 4) and your Kindred browser add (step 5) by using the same name you added the comment with as you downloaded the browser extension with.

So that means just by entering this competition you are giving £1 to charity! So what are you waiting for? 🥰

That is all you have to do to enter; we know this is a little more creative for you all, but LOADS of fun too! We will pick a winner at random from the entries to win the £500 to spend through Kindred; full terms and conditions are at the end of this article.

The closing date for this is 11.59pm on Tuesday 2nd March at 11.59pm. Good luck everyone. Full terms and conditions are at the end of this article. You can enter each design once on each of the platforms you use, for a maximum of 6 entries per person.

Why is it important to #shopwithheart

According to the Charities Aid Foundation, two-thirds of charities are likely to have to reduce their services due to lockdown. This is despite there being a spike in the need for charitable services with increasing demand across communities.

We have to shop so much more online, and we are reducing the spend we can make to charities because some of us are struggling with current circumstances.

So why not help charities out with the spend we are making anyway by shopping online using Kindred? This way the money we were all going to spend anyway generates a little extra for the charities that mean something to each of us.

Let’s learn to shop with kindness and #shopwithheart whenever we hit that “Pay” button on our browsers.

Add Kindred to your browser today and you can see how easy it is to do. Full details are on this link. If you do need anything though, they are very approachable on social media as well.

Kindred offers a way of giving to favourite charities by offering cashback to you chosen charity on purchases that you would have made anyway!

Why not take a look at the designs my daughter has made for us all?
