3. If you would like to choose a fundraising page to support instead of a charity, choose 'fundraising' from the drop down menu of categories on the search bar and enter the fundraiser's name.

4. Alternatively, you can make a one-off donation to any charity or fundraising page on the website without changing your 'Give as you Live' charity or page, via the 'Give money' option.


How to Give as you Live

Give as you Live is a way to raise money for charity, for free, doing what you would normally do on the web everyday.

Use Everyclick's Yahoo!-powered search engine to search the web, use the 'shopping' category to search for items you'd like to buy or use the 'eBay' category to search for items on eBay. As you search the web or buy through shopping and eBay, you will raise money for your charity.

You do not have to create an account to do this, but if you do, you can keep track of your giving history and change your supported charity easily.

You can support a different charity with Give as you Live to the charity you have set your fundraising page to support.

Alternatively, you can support your own fundraising page with Give as you Live by searching for your page and selecting 'Give as you Live' from the giving options.


How to create a fundraising page

Creating a fundraising page will allow you to collect sponsorship online for your fundraising event or appeal.

1. Sign up with Everyclick. If you already have an account, make sure you have signed in.

Everyclick category search

3. Enter the name of your charity and click the search button.

4. Click on the link for your charity's name and go to their page. On their page, mouseover the 'Get involved' button and select the 'Create a fundraising page' option. If this option is not shown, but 'Sign up' is, then you will need to sign in - if you haven't signed up , create your account now.

5. Fill out the fields on your 'my page' tab. Remember that the more information you add to the description section of your page, the more interesting your page will look.

6. Add a YouTube video to spice up your page. Either make your own about your fundraising, or add one which shows what your charity does.

7. Let your supporters know how your fundraising or preparation is going via regular blog or Twitter posts - you can add the RSS feeds to your page.

8. Once you have created your page you can manage it simply by going into your account. Click on the down arrow on your account bar in the top right hand corner of the web page and click the link 'your account'.

9. Go to the 'my page' tab in your account to see your fundraising page details.

You can also support your own fundraising page as you 'Give as you Live'.


How to create a fundraising group

If you are a company, school or college you can create a group that all your staff or students can join, so you can see how much you've raised in total.

You can also create a group to join fundraisers together so you can all see how much you have raised collectively for your cause.

1. A fundraiser with an account can create a group. Go to your account via the 'down' arrow on the account bar in the top right corner of the page.

2. Go to the my groups tab in your account and fill in the fields. You can choose a unique URL for your group e.g. http://www.everyclick.com/myfundraisinggroup. You can then use this to invite your staff, students or friends to join your group.

3. Once you have created your group it might take up to three minutes for it to appear in the search results (make sure you search in the 'fundraising' category). You can create as many groups as you like, but once you have created one, it cannot be deleted nor the URL changed.

If you would like your fundraising page to be in your fundraising group, make sure you set up your group first. When you create your fundraising page you will be able to select a group that you want your appeal to be in.

People do not have to create an account to be in your group, they can support it anonymously.

You can change the charity your group support at any time, but this will also change the Give as you Live charity for all members of your group. They will be informed when they next sign in to their account.

Any member can leave a group by joining another group or by selecting a different charity or fundraising page to support.
