Take surveys and help raise money for The Mix

:wave: I was watching QI the other night and it freaked me out to discover how much money is lost in the NHS due to injuries people acquire due to getting involved in sponsored events - fun runs, parachute jumps - all of that malarkey. So it got me thinking, there must be a safer way to help out a charity right? And yes - we've found it... See below for the deets of our new venture.



You can help raise money for The Mix by taking part in opinion surveys over at opinion people. And the trick is to keep taking part in surveys. For each survey you fill in, The Mix will receive money that will go towards keeping the charity running and providing you with non-judgmental, expert advice and support.
Earn money as you complete more surveys and enter into prize draws to win exclusive offers. If you still need an added benefit fundraising will look great on your CV.
You have to be over 14 and an internet user to sign up. opinion people is a project run by Norstat UK, a provider of online market research services. For more information about how to sign up click here.



Any questions or concerns, feel free to give us a nudge :)

    Gone to sign up, but got no confirmation email or anything, anyone else having this problem?

    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "

    How do we link it to TheMix so they get the money? or is it automatic?

    For over a year now I've been taking surveys with surveymonkey https://contribute.surveymonkey.com/ here. And for every survey i take they donate 50p to my chosen charity. and i also get put into a draw to win i think £100 of amazon vouchers...I haven't yet won :P. but i think ive donated something like £30 to Barnardos....There isn't a huge list of charities to choose from, is this something themix could get involved in..Like get that charity on there...I dunno how it workks.

    Hi all,

    Here's a bit more info about how the website works - hope it's helpful...

    For every young person that signs up through The Mix and completes two surveys The Mix gets £3. After that, for every additional survey that you complete we will receive a payment. Anyone that completes a survey will also receive a payment of anything between 50p-£1.50 per survey depending on how long the survey is. By taking part in this you’ll be able to raise funds for The Mix, make a bit of money for yourself and have a say on the direction of the brands and organisations that you love. You have to be over 14 to take part. Norstat is bound by the Data Protection Act 1998 and is a member of the Market Research Society so you can be assured that your personal data will be keep completely secure.
