    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    My partner and I have decided to give something back this year and with the help of the ipswich community every year, all year. We have seen an increase in the amount of homeless people there are in ipswich and would like to do what we can to help them.
    We understand there are some that have chosen that way of life, not to mention the stories you hear of the fraudsters, however moving the minority aside, there are some out on the streets due to no fault of their own.
    With that said does it matter how they got there? surely at this time of year (winter) the main concern is to do what we can to keep anyone that's on the streets as warm as we can. But then we thought instead of just trying to keep them warmer why not try and get them off the streets, then I see the night shelter bus for the Isle of Wight.........so that's what we're doing. We're doing, we are going to get a double decker bus, convert it into a night shelter with a kitchen area, wash area, chill out zone and a consultation room, 365 days of the year. Aswell as working with other agencies to provide the support and advice these guys need to kick habits and get back on their feet.

    Anything that you can afford to give will be very much appreciated, and needed, even if it's just £1.00.
