Weʼve raised £25 to To help the homeless shelter with supplies for this winter
- Funded on Sunday, 22nd October 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This summer holidays myself and my children are trying to raise as much money as possible to help the homeless shelter. My children will be taking part in the 2.5k great mini and junior Birmingham Run on Saturday 14th October 2017. We will be using the money raised to buy donations for the homeless shelter in Wolverhampton, things we will like to donate are, coffee, hot chocolate, squash, soup, shampoos and toothpaste and toothbrushes. Every little donation will help, so please donate as much as you can.
There are a lot of people who would debate whether or not we should help the homeless but no homeless person deserves to be on the street. There is a certain stigma around the homeless with a common assumption that the majority are drug addicts or alcoholics and that their problems are therefore self inflicted. Although theres a certain measure of truth in that thinking, there are also a number of homeless people which are victims of domestic or severe trauma abuse. To help the homeless is to help some of the most vulnerable and unfortunate people in our community.
We feel this is the right way to donate, because any homeless person can walk into the shelter and use the donations we have given. Our donations may not change someone's life.. but at least it will make this upcoming winter a easier one for some people.
My children are very young, ages are (12, 8, 5 and 1) I think it's essential they realise how fortunate they are to have any food of their choice on the table. They will be coming along to shop for the homeless shelter using the donations we have raised.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, please donate as much or as little as you can as every penny will honestly help our little project for this summer :-) We aim to buy the supplies at the beginning of September so please donate and share with your friends.
