    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    The Rucksack Appeal Swansea aims to supply Rucksacks filled with essential items to rough sleepers & homeless people whether they are first timers on the street or if they have been unfortunate to have their stuff stolen. I wish to be able to fund this as 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. Most of us are just two paychecks away from being in a similar position.
    If you can donate anything (even us forego a cup of coffee) to help it will be very much appreciated and go toward helping vulnerable people throughout the year!

      This page will be coming to a close soon so I would like to put out an appeal to reach the target before it does. This money will be used to provide a bags of essential items for homeless & rough sleepers in Swansea for the summer. In August there are reduced facilities available and and therefore people don't have access items we often take for granted. I will be hosting an event at the 360 Cafe on Saturday 8th April and all are welcome. https://www.facebook.com/SwanseaRucksackAppeal/ Please liike my page for more details

      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.
