Hey there, everyone,

It's been a few months since we set up our charity Pinterest pages back in October 2013 and we have been really bowled over with the amount of interaction and how well people are responding to the content.

At the time we wrote the initial blog we only has seven boards and a handful of pins.

We have been working really hard to build this up and now have 25 boards and almost 300 pins. We are thrilled to see that we get several repins on a daily basis as well as a growing number of followers. Why not join them by following us on Pinterest too.

What we love about Pinterest is the way you can also embed boards in your site. So that what we are going to here so you can have a preview of some of the unique content we are curating over there.

Here's some of the boards we are really proud of, but you will have to go over to Pinterest to see all of them!


We wanted to create boards of all the animals you can adopt via the want2donate website. It's no surprise that pandas are one of the most popular choices people make. We are trying to make our panda pins interesting by adding short facts about them with each pin.

Charity train advertising

We like to keep a track of how charity advertising is evolving on the train networks in the Southeast. As we get these trains most days we try to snap photos of any charity train ads we can find!

Adelie Penguins

Penguins are another of the most popular animals that you can adopt with the WWF. Like all our other animal Pinterest boards, we are posting little nuggets of interesting information with each pin.

Charity print advertising

When we see a charity ad in a newspaper or magazine we take a photo and add it to this growing Pinterest board.

Asian elephants

More lovely animal photos of the endangered Asian elephant. We are trying to curate the most beautiful photos with a sprinkling of facts and information we have discovered about elephants too.

Responsive charity websites

We want to continue our survey of taking screenshots of responsive charity websites. We have written about how important it is for charities to have responsive websites in an earlier blog post.

Charity smartphone apps

We have written 6 blog posts about charity smartphone apps. This is part of a continuing audit of what's out there. We don't really review them, more report on what is inside it. We did write one extra blog with a bunch of tips for charities who are considering building a smartphone.

Tax exempt status of registered charities and online security

All of the charities listed on this website are registered with the Charity Commission in the United Kingdom. Like any business, charities have to submit Tax Returns to HM Revenue and Customs, but all donations are declared and the charities do not have to pay tax on them. This means all your donation to charity will help to further their vision and goals.

Registered charity numbers

Each charity's registered number can be seen prominently displayed on the bottom of their respective pages on this site and underneath their logos.

Please get in touch if you would like to ask us a question.

Is my donation to charity secure?

All donations, animal adoptions or child sponsorships are exempt from tax and carried out through secure encrypted connections.

Are my details safe?
