What is crowdfunding?

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


Hello guys this is Marcus, just come back from Africa, I have started this page to raise funds for the Charity Restart Africa. I'm here to tell about one special orphanage, Restart Africa.

Restart Africa helps children who are victims of drug abuse, maltreatment and have been abandoned. They give them their lives back and provide safety, security and a future.

I was very lucky to spend a whole month there from July to August. I was able to experience and see first-hand all problems that all kids faced each and every day. I got to see and meet all the amazing kids that Restart cares for and houses.I got hear to their absolutely heart-breaking stories which just made me cry in floods of tears, they have had the most awful start to their lives. No-one deserves what they have been through at all. Each day was a completely different adventure and different story. Each day had it's high and lows. I also met and got to know the most dedicated and amazing staff . Each of them worked 24/7 for the kids, I have never met such inspiring people , they are all incredible for they what they do. I got to meet the most amazing lady that I met in my whole life the CEO of Restart, Mary Couslon. Whilst I was there I did so many tasks to help, I got to clean, cook and most importantly I got to spend time with the most amazing kids that I have known in my life, I was able to forge such a special connection with them. I miss Restart massively and I want to be there right now! Restart has had a massive impact on my life and I know that it has changed my whole life! My heart is with Restart.
Now I all ask of you to donate to this special charity to me. What ever you can donate will mean the world to them. They really need the funding to keep doing their amazing work.
Please donate, be a part of this amazing place.
I would be ever so grateful if you could donate
