My Favourite Voucher Codes is a discount code company, who offer online shoppers the chance to save money on high street brands such as Argos and Debenhams. Each month the company donate 20% of their profits to charity; choosing three charities in one area of the UK each month – and the Crescent will be one of three nominated charities for October.

Voting is completely free and there is no need to sign up – simply click on The Cresent to cast your vote! If you do use any of the vouchers on offer however, then you can help add to the donation, as each voucher used contributes to the final amount.

Either way The Crescent wins, and you don’t need to do anything to vote other than visit My Favourite Voucher Codes to vote for free, so get clicking on that mouse and swiping on your tablet or phone to help the Crescent keep helping others.
