Weʼre raising £1,000,000 to give 20 charities £50,000 each! £1 per person, that's all it takes. A million people, A million pounds!
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.
Last week I was privileged enough to become a victim of a wonderful, random act of kindness from a total stranger! Due to this, it got me thinking about how we can all do something small yet it make such a HUGE difference to so many lives!
So, whilst racking my brains on how I can pay that random act of kindness forward, I came up with this idea...
A million people, A million pound! There are over 66 million people in England alone and if only 1 million of them donated just £1, then that would be, of course, £1,000,000! Obviously, not all of the 66 million people would be able to donate, let's take out the children, those that are not confident in using a computer, those who keep their cash under the mattress and of course, those that simply don't want to help others! From all of that, I am hoping that there will be 1 million people left!
Are you one of those 1 million kind, caring people who want to make a huge difference by not having to give much or actually do anything? #minimumeffortmaximumeffect
1. Every person is to ONLY donate £1 (2 people minimum per donation as minimum donation amount is £2! 🤦♀️) So if there are 4 of you, the most you can donate is £4! Make sure you write everyone’s names on so they all get credit where credit is due!
2. When you donate, write the name of your preferred charity. (MUST be a registered charity, you can't choose 'The charity of Me!') and if you all want to choose different charities, then make sure you pop them all down!
3. SHARE, SHARE, SHARE AND SHARE AGAIN! Tell everyone you know, all those friends on facebook (even the ones you haven't spoken to since you left school!), twitter, instagram, snapchat, work, the school playground, EVERYWHERE! #amillionpeopleamillionpounds
When we reach £1,000,000 (after the fees from Just Giving and card transactions!) I will work out the top 20 most popular charities and donate £50,000 to each one! That amount of money should make a huge difference to them! And all because you donated just £1! How amazing is that!
There will be an instagram page dedicated to sharing updates and when we reach the £1,000,000 it will show the chosen charities and pictures proving the money has been donated to them!
Let's see how quickly we can raise £1,000,000 and make a difference to people's lives. Will your charity be in the top 20?

Oh dear!!!! I have just attempted to donate £1 myself and the minimum that Just Giving will allow you to donate is £2! So that means there will have to be two people for every donation please! 50,000 people, a million pounds just doesn't have the same ring to it, does it?!? #teethingproblems
