As the festive period is now here we’re looking to bring some joy and comfort to groups of people who may find this time more difficult.

Here at LV= we go above and beyond for our people, customers and members who are going through a particularly difficult time by creating Green Heart experiences through our Green Heart and member support.

In short, we want to help everyone live bigger and better lives.

That’s why, during this festive period, we’re spreading the love by offering extra support to others who need it.

We’ve launched our #chosenbyyule campaign on social media to give a variety of charities, good causes and community groups the opportunity to win a £500 donation from us. 

That’s where you come in…

Each week in December we’re going to be looking for charities which fit a different theme. As we know there are many different causes which are close to people’s hearts which is why we want to share these with you and hear your suggestions.

All you have to do is select a UK based charity, good cause or community group which fits with the theme of the week and comment or tag them in our social posts.

We’ll then randomly select a winner from all your entries who’ll receive a £500 donation. 

Head to either our Facebook or Twitter pages to give us your suggestion.

Take a look at our videos below to see the theme for each week.
