Rattling a Tin 21st...Century Style

Okay, so my last post wasn't about how you can help WNO but sometimes you just have to go with the flow. And now the flow is taking me back upstream to remind you of how you can help out WNO in a financial kind of way.

First up you can contribute without actually spending any money by using the search engine, which is like a 70's supergroup combining search results from Bing, (formerly known as Ask Jeeves) and Yahoo!

The next way you can help is by doing your online shopping through This is a devilishly simple idea where retailers donate a certain percentage of what you spend with them towards WNO. The variety of retailers is too large and varied for any succinct reportage but, as I'm not a professional journalist, I feel it's my duty to amateurs the world over to barge on ahead regardless of brevity with an alphabetical tour of a to z...

Amazon – British Gas – Crotchet Classical – Disneyland Paris
Eurostar – Fitness First – Genes Reunited – Hilton
iTunes – John Lewis – KLM – Love Film
Nigel’s Eco Store – O2 – P&O Ferries – Qantas
RAC Insurance – Sainsbury’s – Tesco – uSwitch
Viva La Diva – Wallis – Your Golf Travel – Zone Alarm

It's quite simple to use, all you have to do is create an account for yourself and remember to login before you make purchases. And yes, I know, X is missing.

If you would prefer you could donate directly to WNO in a variety of ways, including helping to support next year's new production of La bohème. And, of course, there's the age-old way of donating and that's to put your bum on a seat for WNO performances when they tour close to your stomping ground.
