Instagram Donations

Instagram has launched a donation feature with users now able to add a donation sticker to stories they create with the app.  The photo-sharing social media platform, owned by Facebook, announced plans to add a donation feature earlier this year, promising that 100% of money raised would go directly to charities.  Eligible charities will be able to create an Instagram story and add the donation sticker to start a 24-hour fundraiser. 


The Christmas Challenge

One donation, twice the impact.

The Big Give runs the UK’s biggest match funding campaign, The Christmas Challenge.

For seven days, it offers supporters of participating charities the opportunity to have their donation doubled. Founded by entrepreneur and philanthropist Sir Alec Reed CBE,  the Christmas Challenge has raised millions of pounds for thousands of charity projects since it launched on the Big Give in 2008.
