About us

Why does WeYay! exist?

We want to make a small contribution for a better world. We do this by making giving fun.

How does WeYay! work?

Simply make a donation on WeYay! and, with a bit of luck, you’re off to meet your favourite celebrities and experience an incredible event that money just can’t buy! Our participating celebrities know that many people around the world depend on our generosity. With WeYay! they get to hand-pick the charity project closest to their hearts and, with our support, promote their own big fundraiser for their chosen projects. But that’s not all! Together with one lucky fan they will be starring in a one-off special event. Our celebrities show the world a new way of giving and spreading happiness – not only by raising funds for the good cause, but also by spending time with one of their fans and giving them the time of their lives!

What is WeYay!’s job?

We are the ones putting the plan into action and making sure everything runs smoothly. We create and organise the events, make sure you’re always kept in the loop, guarantee that the prize draw is run in accordance with regulations, and take responsibility for the proper handling of all donations. We work as efficiently as possible, which allows us to give 80% of all funds raised directly to the charity organisations involved. We only keep 20% of your donations, and put every penny into building an even bigger network of supporters. This enables us to plan more exciting events, spread our message to more people, and, as a result, do more good!
