    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    After my first #NotForgotten challenge in 2013, second in 2014 and third last year, and, from the sheer response, help and wonderful donations collected from so many wonderful and selfless people all over the UK - we're BACK and this time we're trying to help even more of the homeless on London's streets this Christmas Day! Whilst many will be spending it with their families and loved one opening presents, eating beautiful food in the warmth, there are literally thousands of people cold, alone & hungry whom are desperate for help x

    From witnessing, and encountering homelessness in its purest form over the past three years, and listening to the stories from many of the homeless who I reached out to, helped, and gave just a little of my time to, I'm now adamant that I can go out, at least on this one day of the year to help as many as I can as they genuinely need it, appreciate and are so so thankful for the help (from all of the donations collected..) that they receive - it doesn't take alot to help me on this mission of mine.... 👍💖😆

    Well, from the beginning of December, I shall be uploading videos and photos on all social media, giving detailed updates of the "Journey So Far".
    But everybody will be able to follow the team on the day (December 25th) showing just how the donations received will be helping better (significantly) the lives of people whom so desperately need it....!?

    I'm trying to raise a such as I can to help me with the expected costs of things needed:- ranging from a rental van, materials (foodstuffs, bottled water, blankets, fuel for the day) cutlery (plastic knives and forks), printing supplies (logo'd banners/stickers/labels/t-shirts).

      We are just THIRTY pounds away from our target for this year's #NotForgotten!!! We are currently sitting at an amazing 94% now, and on our last day..... Can I simply ask 15 people, who HAVEN'T already donated...... To part ways with just TWO POUNDS/THREE/TWO EUROS - which by all admissions, is around the same price to buy and send a Christmas card 2nd class....... Again, you'd be helping out more than you realise, you can remain completely anonymous so no need to feel ashamed if it is just £2 you can give etc etc. Thanks to everyone! ❤️❤️
