    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

    The Make a Smile team work tirelessly all year round to support the running of nine children's homes and a baby and toddler unit, in the Marina Alta area. Working to help provide safe and secure havens for some of the most vulnerable children in our area. Many are without a family of their own or are at risk from their own family members so their security is paramount.

    There have been a number of problems recently and the massive financial worries, that have been well documented have left us with with confused and frightened children and team of exhausted and concerned Carers. The uncertain future cannot be resolved overnight but we can do something to help make this difficult time a little more bearable and bring a little joy to the children and some respite for the Carers.

    The school summer holidays are always a very difficult time of year for children in care, as it is the time they become very aware of their own situation are are stuck in the homes with no holidays to enjoy like other children.

    This year could be even harder, not only for the wonderful and dedicated Carers, who are all very tired and have very low morale. The opportunity of sending the children to summer camps or morning summer school gives the child something to really look forward to and a gives the Carers some much earned time off plus keeps the overall running costs down and boosts morale!

    So, along with the local Town Halls and groups such as the Red Cross, we are asking for your help to make this happen for as many children as possible, along with arranged days out for the babies and toddlers.

    We have estimated the cost to be around 300e per child, so with your support we're looking to raise 10,000e to make this happen! Its super quick and easy to make your donation through this Just Giving page and want to thank you for your continued support and generosity in helping 'Make a Smile' really make a difference to the lives of these young, local children living in care.

        The children of today are the adults of tomorrow. If they realise how much is being done on their behalf, maybe they can follow the example and help others in the future. Keep up the good work.
