    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.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Every day 1,000 refugees arrive on the tiny Greek island of Kos and this is expected to increase in the coming months. They arrive with nothing and spend weeks sleeping on the streets of Kos with no where to go. These people are desperate for safety, they no longer want to fear for their lives and the lives of their family. We want to bring a shed of happiness to the lives of these refugees this Christmas by providing them with a drawstring bag of Christmas gifts filled by local people.
