    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    I recently came across a friend sleeping rough outside Charing Cross station. He and his buddy had lost their jobs and then their accomodation, forcing them to sleep in a shelter in Embankment Gardens.

    Both guys are trying to get jobs, one having been offered a job, but needing an address to secure it.

    Having investigated what it would take to get these guys accomodation for a couple of months, it would appear that if we can raise £2000 - £2500, we can get them secure accomodation and some new work clothes. The housing provider will give a reduced rate on rent until they secure work.

    It would be terrific to raise this money and get two guys off the streets this side of Christmas.

    Please help if you can, it would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi everyone, I’m delighted to be able to say we are now two thirds of our way towards the fundraising goal for these two fellas. To that end, we will be paying security deposits this Friday and they will move into their new accommodation over the weekend. If you had thought of doing so but didn’t get around to it, there is still time to help get these chaps back on their feet, give them a comfortable Christmas, and provide a launchpad for them to get going and working in the early part of 2019. Thanks again, Al
