    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    I'd like to start using a bike and trailer to help deliver groceries to the elderly and disabled in my local area. This project has virtually no operating costs and is environmentally friendly helping keep their shopping bills down at the same time as being environmentally ethical.

    I'd also like to use the bike and trailer to finish my 2100 mile solo bike journey from Chelmsford to Marrakech to raise the rest of the money for a drinking water pump in Malawi, Africa. I raised £1000 previously, but would like to finish the ride and raise the remaining £2000 to pay for the complete pump.

      Just think how nice it will be to have a friendly guy delivering food to the elders on a bike! I've been reading stories about how some old people end up alone in a room with nobody to talk to and they literally don't speak to anyone for about a week. How terrible for them as they are soon to pass and yet they are abandoned for reasons beyond their control! My plan is to set up regular trips to the shop of their choice and buy the groceries yes, but also to provide comfort to them if they should need a friend. Please help!

      It's my 36th birthday on the 7th of January 2017 so to celebrate I am holding a 36th Birthday Charity Bash on Wednesday the 11th of January and donating the proceeds to this charity project. Not only will it benefit elderly and disabled people in the Chelmsford area, but I'm planning to do the Chelmsford to Marrakech ride again to raise the remaining £2000 for a water pump in Malawi, Africa.

      Well this isn't going all that well.... Might take a little time for the news to filter down?
