If you just want to make a donation rather than buying anything (which if you are a tax payer will be upped by the government by the tax you paid to earn that money) then here are the details...

If you are shopping, you will be able to make a donation at the time you're finalising your purchase: there is a separate Donate section which you can complete.

However if you are not shopping now but would like to make a gift, go to [url]www.lrf.org.uk/donate[/url] where you can make a secure donation or set up a standing order.

We rely entirely on voluntary donations to fund our world-leading research programme. Your gift of any amount will help us save lives. And if you're a UK tax payer and tick the Gift Aid box we can reclaim from the Inland Revenue 28p in every £1 given at no extra cost to you. Thank you. Please note that tax can only be reclaimed on donations made by individuals. You must pay income and/or capital gains tax to cover the amount we reclaim. If you stop paying tax and/or change name/address, please tell us.

Just donated what I would have spent on my parents Christmas presents. Lost my little brother in 1993 to leukaemia. I couldnt think of anything my parents needed for Christmas so instead of getting a random present just for the sake of getting something I figured the money would be more useful for Leukaemia Research.

A donation is far better than a purchase if you want to support the charity. I don't know how much of the purchase is actually a donation, but I hope it's better than the 'charity cards' I saw in Next. For a £3 box of cards, they were 'proud' to donate about 12p!

Surely a better option is to buy some bargain cards, and donate the different using gift aid. Most charity cards are a con - a few pence goes to the charity, the rest is taken as profit by one or more of the companies involved.

Had a quick look on the website, and it seems very short on details of just how much goes to the charitty from your purchases. Not as bag as those chuggers on the street who get you to sign up on a direct debit for a charity, but "forget" to tell you that the first years money, sometimes more, will be going to them as their commision.

If you want to give to a charity, then give direct. Don`t believe the hype on websites or in shops about the proceeds being given to charity.

A young lad down my road died from Leukemia just the other day. A sad week in the local paper.

Going to look now and buy a couple, good cause and beats everything I've bought this Christmas as it will go a long long way if everyone does their bit. Whats £2 in the grand scheme of things anyway. Get some bought people.

Heat n repped ;-)

donating is much better then spending £3, and only 10p of this goes to charity. Your better off buying some cheap cards for £1 and donating £2, u get ure cards and charity gets more money.

Just donated. I lost a frien[COLOR=black]d to Leukaemia last week. 4 weeks from diagnosis to dead.

Also lost my grandfather to Leukaemia many years ago.

The sooner they get this sorted the better.

Great cause but i can tell you from experience its better to make a direct donation than to buy anything, unless it specifically says all money goes to the charity! still heated as the cause and intent are v.good! Dont fall for the direct debit things either, what i do is pick a cause that means summat to ya and donate direct on their web site, i do it once a quarter and normaly end up giving to 3/4 different charities {sometimes the same one twice in the year}
#23
Best post I've seen on here. Thank you for reminding me to put life into perspective and be greatful for life. That sounds cheesy I know, but it's the truth. Donation made.
#24
Heat added.. Great cause. yes, cure is within sight but needs that great big push. For some 10-15 years may be too late but help we can all bring this forward... so guys every little helps.
#25
Donated, H+R added.

As a deal - freezing cold (£7 postage) plus it doesn't say what %age goes to the charity.

As a suggestion to donate to those less fortunate - scorching hot.

H&R from me too, a good cause and a stark reminder that not everyone will be have a "Merry" Christmas this year.

I will have a better browse later when I finish work.
#30
Great cause i will be having a look on their site now.
#31
well done got a good score playing the sympathy card - so how much % wise goes to the actual people
#32
Dont think this post is about points scoring, its about helping people.
#33
again % please theres so many charities that take more than they give - no offence
banned#34
I'm quite surprised that the percentage is not mentioned on their webpage. I know the board of trustees is voluntary, but it would be nice to know how much of the domations go to the charity.

Similarly, it would be nice to know how much of the £2 +£7 postage goes to charity. It seems the biggest winner is the courier. As with most charity deals, it seems it is actually better to buy your cards at a pound store or other local shop and not from the charity. Then give whatever you have saved to the charity direct and gift aid it too.
#35
£5 delivery is an outrage. I'd happily buy these cards if they were £5 for a pack and £2 for postage, but £5 postage is ridiculous for a £2 packet of cards!

I don't want my money going to some courier/delivery service - I want it to go to the cause!
#36
great cause. heat added
#37
Voted cold - there is no transparancy at all about how much goes to a charity and how much is profit. Appalling postage fees as well. If you want to donate money to a charity then do it properly, give your cash to them direct, gift aid it and then make your purchase elsewhere.

Heat for highlighting this cause. My uncle died from Leukaemia 4 years ago and two years ago this Xmas I was diagnosed. I had a bone marrow transplant last year and ow my life to ALL of you who contribute to reasearch, donate blood products etc.
Thank you highlighting this, but a big thanks to all of you out there who have directly or indirectly helped prolong my life

Do you not think that the goverment should be funding this research instead of them relying on charity? I have no doubt it's a great cause to contribute but there are hundreds of disease's that are equally deserving of funds to help find a cure. Personally I think the more the public contribute the more it let's the goverment off the hook.

Heat added, my 11 month old niece died last month from leukaemia, and generous people gave nearly £2000 to Leukaemia research in her name.
This post raises awareness whichever way people decide to give their money.
