The Colour of Hope now has its own facebook group! Anyone can join at (if you haven't already got a facebook account you'll need to create one, but it's free and easy to do ). We'll be posting more news on the group page and will be able to let you know more easily about any up and coming events.

The Colour of Hope on the Web!

Plans for the Colour of Hope website are well underway, but in the meantime, information about the charity has gone out across the internet in video form. If you attended one of the various fundraising events we held in the UK this year, you will probably have seen the short DVD I made about our work. It has now been uploaded onto 8 different video sites and will hopefully generate even more interest in the charity. I'll post it here in the next entry!

A new Charity Search Engine, “Easysearch”, has now been released! This means you will be able to raise funds for The Colour of Hope simply by surfing the web!
Easysearch is an Internet search engine powered by Yahoo! It works just like normal search engines, giving fast and accurate search results, but also allows you to raise funds for The Colour of Hope with every search you make! The Colour of Hope receives about a penny each time you click on a search result, and although it doesn’t sound like much, the pennies soon add up! the pennies soon add up! And remember, a penny goes a long way in Peru! Easysearch is completely free to use, so this is great way to support The Colour of Hope at no cost to you! Please use this unique The Colour of Hope link to make your searches: Add it to your favourites or save it as your homepage so that you don’t have to type in the address each time.


The Colour of Hope is now registered with Easyfundraising - an online shopping directory, listing over 400 of the UK's biggest and best known retailers - but with a difference. Simply use the links provided on their website when you shop online and up to 15% of your purchase price will be donated to The Colour of Hope, FREE of charge!

There’s no hidden catch - it doesn't cost you anything extra to shop and raise funds in this way and there are hundreds of retailers participating, such as: Ebay, Skype, Amazon, Marks and Spencer, Tesco, WHSmith, Next, John Lewis, Thetrainline, Currys, Dixons, DELL, HMV, Virgin, Vodafone, AOL, Choices Direct, Esure, The AA, Direct Line, Churchill, The Carphone Warehouse, Ryan Air, Easyjet, BA, Expedia, Hilton, Travelodge, Laterooms and many, many more.

In fact, you can even save money as many retailers give exclusive discounts, special offers and even 'e-vouchers' when you shop through the easyfundraising website. Just log on to the easyfundraising site using The Colour of Hope’s unique link: and register. Then you'll be able to raise funds for The Colour of Hope whilst making purchases you would make anyway!

If you work for a business, or even have your own company, you could help further still by making your business orders through the easyfundraising website. There’s a special Business Services Category including Staples, Viking Office Supplies, Euroffice, Office Giant, Ryman, Royal Mail Smart Stamp, Skype, Vodafone Business, Misco, PC World Business, Dabs and lots more.

If you belong to a charitable organisation and are thinking of signing up to easyfundraising, please would you do so via this referral link: . The Colour of Hope will then receive 20% of whatever you raise without affecting your fundraising total at all because the extra 20% is paid to us by easyfundraising. That way we can both benefit.

Happy shopping!
