Oxfam Collects at Work - Getting Started

Thanks for your interest in Oxfam Collects at Work. In a few easy steps you can make a big difference to the clutter in your cupboards and Oxfam's fight against poverty.

Print these posters and put them up around your workplace (coffee areas, lifts, noticeboards).

Using the Oxfam Collects launch text below, let everyone know how they can join in.  It would be great if people could also consider signing up to Gift Aid at to make their donations worth 25% more to Oxfam.

Step 2: Get donating

Pick a spot in your workplace to be the drop-off point for donations.

When your colleagues sign up they'll receive a personalised set of stickers to attach to their bags. Motivate them with ideas of the things we'd like: the DVDs they won't watch again, the paperback they've already read... could pay for clean drinking water or more of Oxfam's world-famous, award-winning buckets to store it.

What to donate

Step 3: Arrange a collection

Step 4: Feel the impact

Celebrate your success. We'll send everyone who signs up a personalised report telling them how much they've raised for Oxfam and what that could achieve. From schoolbooks to safe water, better crops and jobs, your donations will help us tackle poverty long into the future.
