    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.

    Story

    My daughter had her phone stolen and being an iPhone she was able to track it but not find it. She saw that it had been found and a couple of hours later I had a call from an unknown mobile number saying his name was Peter and that he’d found the phone. I was suspicious, thought maybe he’d stolen it and wanted a reward.

    Peter is homeless. He has a pay as you go phone, a dog he adores and lives in a tent in London. He found the phone while looking in drains, switched it on and saw a message to call me.

    Georgia now has her phone back. She met Peter and his dog Kaizer and he wanted nothing more than for Georgia to be reunited with her phone. His rationale? “It's nice to be nice”. He also said that homeless people get a bad rap and that he wanted people to see that "they're not all bad".

    I want him to have something nice happen to him. I don‘t as yet know how best to help him but if I can raise some money for him and at least ensure he’s comfortable and warm over Christmas that will be a start.

    Thank you so much for reading and every donation will be hugely appreciated xx

      You absolutely marvellous bunch of generous buggers. You’ve only gone and hit, nay, smashed the target of £500!! £505 to be exact plus another tenner handed to me today. £515 for Peter. I’ve bought him a card and the name of every single one of you will be in the card to show him that people care. I’m meeting him next Tuesday. If he’ll allow me to take any pictures I’ll post them with his consent. I hope your kind gesture gives you a sense of well-being this Christmas. And I hope this starts a turning point for Peter. Karma at its best.

      Thank you all so much for your generosity. There are a few days left to donate if anyone would still like to. I’ve got a card to put the names in of everyone who’s donated to show Peter that there are people out there that care about him and others in his situation.

      Due to the huge generosity being shown towards this cause I've upped the target to £500. After much deliberation and research into how best to support a homeless person, I think a big part of the money will be converted into things like socks, undies, warm clothing, some treats, dog food for Kaizer, vouchers for Tesco etc to buy food and some cash. Its not for me to dictate how he spends the money but I'd like to at least ensure he has some level of comfort over Christmas. Thank you all again for your kindness towards a stranger xx
