What is Brightideas365?

Brightideas365.com is the new online magazine dedicated to providing positive news to the people of the UK. There are many important issues featured in the media nowadays, but these seemed to have squeezed out the positive stories of all the good things that are going on. Brightideas365 seeks to redress the balance a little. We aim to bring you the stories that make you smile and show it’s not such a bad old World after all…

We are also committed to raising funds for schools, charities, churches, and community groups across the UK and beyond, and for this reason all of our profits go to them. Not only that but subscribers get to decide which cause their subscription will support. No profits go to our shareholders,

Brightideas365 carries a mixture of features, competitions, ebooks, brain teasers, what’s ons, etc, with more added every day. What’s more, subscribing for just £2 a week can actually make you better off, as we have £1,000’s of discount vouchers on all sorts of products and services available at any time. Please note: Weekly subscriptions remain free while the Coronavirus crisis continues.

A Brightideas365.com subscription is not a donation. This is the purchase of a product, like a newspaper or a box of cornflakes. We are a limited company like any other, the difference is just where the money goes!

How do we support your community?

When you buy a lottery ticket for £2, just 56p goes to good causes, and someone else chooses which ones.

When you spend £2 on a weeks Brightideas365.com subscription we give 76p to the cause you choose. Not only that, but we additionally give all of our profits to the cause you choose as well. Camelot made £42 million for shareholders last year, we do not pay dividends to shareholders. In other words, everything other than running costs goes to the causes our subscribers choose.

If you spend £2 on a coffee in a high street coffee shop or on a lottery ticket, you get an (admittedly delicious) coffee, or a minute chance of winning an (admittedly fabulous) prize. £2 on a brightideas365 subscription however, get’s you positive news stories from the UK and abroad, entry into 30+ competitions (admittedly with smaller prizes than the lottery, but a much better chance of winning the major prize), £1,000’s of money saving vouchers, features, classic ebooks, brain teasers, and much more.

Can I try Brightideas365 for free.

Yes. You can try out Brightideas365 for the first four weeks for free, and see for yourself what all the fuss is about. If you cancel at any time during the first four weeks you will pay nothing. We think it’s only fair to let people take a look around first and decide they like us before paying anything. You can take your trial subscription here. We also have 12 month advance packages that generate even more for your chosen cause, and save you money.

You will be asked to name your beneficiary cause when you subscribe. This can be a school, charity, church, community group, or almost any not-for-profit organisation that benefits the community. A full list of the types of organisation that are eligible can be found here.

If you’d like take a sneak preview before taking your free trial you can take a look here.

Why are we asking you to tell your friends about us?

One thing the big lotteries and coffee shop chains do have, is massive advertising budgets. We do not.

That is why we are asking you to share this page (click on a button below). This way we hope to harness ‘people power’ to raise money for good causes, not big advertising agencies (they’re already loaded!) or private individuals.

How can my charity, school, church, or community group benefit?

If you would like to raise funds for your school, charity, or community group, then you can request a unique beneficiary code here.

Whenever this is entered by a subscriber, your organisation will get 50% of the income from that subscription every month, plus ALL profits from that subscription at the end of each year, making it easy for your supporters to support your cause with their subscription. See Raise Funds for more information.

Even without a beneficiary code, if a subscriber nominates your cause as beneficiary of their subscription, you will receive payment on the above terms.

Are there opprtunties for writers and journalists?

We are always keen to include something fresh. So if you are a writer (new or established), with a story to tell, then let us know. You could raise your profile as well as raising your income…
