What is crowdfunding?

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

Story

The Rucksack Appeal Swansea 2016 aims to supply Rucksacks filled with essential items to rough sleepers & homeless people this winter. I wish to be able to fund an ongoing campaign to provide Rucksacks as a starter pack to those that find themselves homeless or rough sleeping. I also aim to be able to maintain a supply of donations to help people throughout the year.
I volunteer in two organisations in Swansea and it has highlighted that it could happen to anyone at any time. Sometimes it can happen very quickly and people can be left without anything and not knowing where to turn.
If you can donate anything to help it will be very much appreciated and go toward helping vulnerable people this winter.

    Month 1 complete! Thank you everyone for your donations so far! We are nearly at £100 on here - who will take me over that first marker? Outside this page I have had donations of cash, items, & raffle prizes to the approx value of £735. Starbucks have also informed me that they have received approx 8-9 rucksacks & many donations of scarves, toiletries, water. So thank you all. Please would you continue to donate & spread the word? Looking forward to seeing what the next month brings.

    The story so far...Starbucks Oxford Street Swansea have agreed to be a storage place for all donations and are selling raffle tickets throughout December. I have received donations of coats & jumpers, toiletries, and sleeping bags so far. I have also had cash donations which have purchased five rucksacks to be filled. Several Swansea businesses have donated prizes for a draw on New Year's Day. Thank you so much who have donated. Please keep sharing this page and encourage your friends and family to donate too. It's started to get cold outside!
