NEED:LESS... 1 day to go!

Posted on 07 Sep 2011 by Thea Brook

Starting from this Friday (09.09.11) the Zopa team will be striving to need less in order to give more.  We’ve made a commitment to each live on a budget of £5 a day (or £35 for the whole week) and give all the money we save to the DEC East Africa appeal via our Just Giving page.

But we don’t want to do it on our own!  We’d love for you to join us and to help get you started here’s our consumption calculator to work out how much you could save and donate: NEEDLESS Calculator

Remember, we’re classing consumption as food, drink and entertainment, so you can ignore all your bills and travel costs.  You might have to limit those trips to the pub and make a packed lunch for a week, but by the end of the week we’re pretty sure you’ll be a far more savvy spender so you really can’t lose!

So who’s in?!  Watch this space and our Facebook page for updates and a challenge for the weekend!

We're here to help
