    Discover. Donate. Double.

    For the charities you care about most


    The Big Give enables you to discover charities and projects of
    interest, make donations, and offers the opportunity to double
    your donations through match funding campaigns run throughout
    the year.

    We profile the work of thousands of charities and their projects.
    We are responsible for the UK’s biggest online match funding
    campaign, the Christmas Challenge. In addition to match funding
    campaigns, we also provide a number of other services to help
    charities, individuals and philanthropists to connect and raise more
    money online.

    Since being founded by Sir Alec Reed in 2007, the Big Give has
    helped to raise £83 million for UK-registered charities.

    The Big Give is generously supported by reed.co.uk which helps us
    provide a cost-effective service for both charities aiming to raise
    funds, philanthropists wishing to leverage their giving and
    individuals wishing to donate money online.

    participating charities can be doubled.

    My previous dog used to eat poo, any poo. As for other dogs poo, it used to be from dogs that ate meat rather than dried food. The current mutt won't eat dog poo but any other kind is ok by her, especially human poo If she comes across dog poo she stops dead in her tracks and adopts a pointer like position, almost like she's frozen with shock. Then she steps back and gives the offending turd as wide a berth as her 5m lead will allow

    Thing that amuses me is why is she so precious about dog poo when she is willing to eat every other kind?
