    What is crowdfunding?

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


    'I gave my cheeks to those who pulled out the beard'. I am planning to shave off all my hair, head and beard. With your help, I hope this will raise some money. This money I will split between three different causes: Iraqi Christians in need (http://www.icin.org.uk/), to support the endangered Christians of the Middle East; CalAid (http://www.calaid.co.uk/), to support refugees of whatever background on our own border; and Living Goods (https://livinggoods.org/), a notably effective charity promoting healthcare in Africa. I will be doing this on Friday 20th of May, or at least some point in the 4th Week of Trinity Term. Here is my project blog: https://igavemycheekstothosewhopulledoutthebeard.wordpress.com/

        “What, then, is a philosopher’s matter? Not a ragged coat, surely. No it is reason. What kind of theorems? Surely not ones to do with how to grow a large beard or long hair." --Epictetus Diss. 4.8.12
