Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
2019 was a very important year with the 75th anniversaries of D Day, Market Garden and the Battle of the Bulge. With the publics support we took our veterans back to the places that are important to them so they can pay their respects to their fallen comrades. In addition this year we placed a bench on the banks of the Rijn in memory of a medic who saved the life of one of our veterans and we erected a plaque at the Zig Canal in the Netherlands where so many lives were lost.
2020 sees the 75th Anniversary of the end of WW2 and we would like to give the veterans a fabulous party to commemorate this significate event. To say thank you.
We think its the least we can do. But we cant do it without your support. Every penning donated goes towards our veterans, we at Project 71 are all volunteers who give our time willingly to support these remarkable men and women.
We also need finds to support our veterans on a day to day basis, provide transport, monthly lunches, days out, mobility scooters, home visits and ipads so they can keep in touch with family members.
Would you be prepared to give up one pint of beer, one bottle of wine or bag of chips and donate the money to Project 71 instead so we can say thank you to our veterans?
It would mean so much to all of us. Thank you.
