HOW DOES IT WORK?
If you make www.everyclick.com/mct the page that you use as a search engine rather than Google, everytime you search with it, and then click through to one of the results, Everyclick will give us a penny. That may not seem very much, but when you consider how many web searches the average person does every day - it could add up to a considerable amount.

If you sign up with Everyclick (it costs you nothing) you can monitor how much you are raising for us with each click-through that you do. So please go to www.everyclick.com/mct and add it to your favourites. Then click away and see the funds clock up.

To use this simple service please text MACM01 followed by the amount that you would like to donate (£1, £2, £3, £4, £5, or £10) to 70070.

So for example if you wanted to donate £3 you would text
