    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    Story

    To avoid as much as humanly possible any more drowned children and their families washing up on the shores of the Med by providing MOAS with 10 Centifloats. Each Centifloat offers flotation for up to 100 people in the water once their vessel sinks or capsizes via an inflatable tube with grab handles. Centifloat simply saves lives and MOAS needs more of them to cover the vast expanse of open water and sheer numbers of migrants they are dealing with.

      Well you've done it and some, how can I ever thank you all. We are going to start a further 12 next week and I will keep you all up to date on Twitter. This will mean there will be 34 floats out there instead of the original 10. AMAZING work thank you all.

    I work for Unique Seaflex who manufacture the Centifloat at cost, we have designed this product to save lives and are improving the design daily to enable children and the vulnerable to be lifted out of the water and we hope to design one we can air drop in the coming weeks.
