    Don't have time to donate right now?

    Story

    I have a daughter ... her name is Olivia ... recently we made cupcakes and after she insisted we gave then to the homeless people in town... obviously I support her and we brought water bottles and gave them out ... but I have a problem ... she displays something I cannot handle ... she constantly talks about death and how it affects the people surrounding those who die ..... now lets have it right I'm a family man I am married we have 6 kids in total and she is second youngest ... but she worries about everyone, she recently said she now wants to give to the homeless but she doesn't want to give cupcakes as there is too much sugar, so she want's to give blankets etc to help them... I'm lost ... I once said to someone she's my angel ... they said to me perhaps she's not "your angel" but an actual angel ... I'm speechless ... I'm not a religious man but ... wow ... we will be going out again and handing out what we can to the homeless as per her request, we are are not rich we are quite poor in all honesty but how can I refuse the request of a 5 year old girl .... I write this with my heart on my sleeve ... i pray to be like her ... all proceeds will go towards everything to help the homeless of Manchester even if you dont want to donate to us I urge you to go do something... if a 5 year old girls cupcakes can make a difference then make cakes of your own and hand them out ... we are all people it's mad how the smallest of thoughts can make a difference ... we are manchester lets show the country we are better

      With 19 days remaining the gerorsity has been overwhelming and we have almost hit £200, with this in mind I have raised the goal to £300 in the hooe we can reach such a lofty target. After much consideration and actual experience with the guys on the street, we have decided that the money donate would be best spent on things like ground mats and sleeping bags along with things like wlly hats and golves and socks etc... we have reached out to Argos who sell ground mats cheaply in the hope of seuring a deal which means we can maximise the money

      £163 pounds we are truly grateful ... The media exposure has obviously helped massively but within that we have had to endure some criticism.. We've been called disgusting and scammers so to address those concerns we want to reiterate .... PROOF of this money being spent WILL be posted on Olivia's facebook page https://www.facebook.com/oliviascupcakesmanchester/ we will take pictures of receipts and of course pictures of the provisions brought and us out will be posted .... THANK YOU EVERYONE for your kind support
