    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 charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    We need childhood bags posted directly to children today.
    These should have in them books (farsi, arabic, greek,), toys and warm clothing as winter approaches. We also need trainers posting as lots don't have shoes: Address Melinda McCostie, The Captain's Table, Molyvos, 81108, Lesbos, Greece.

    We will also be using some of the cash raised to help those giving the children food and water when they arrive fro sea.

      Hello everybody. Thank you for donating. Can't believe we are already at 110% of our target! We are going to keep the appeal going for one more week and then cash in so we can help as quickly as possible.

      Thank you for doing this - it is a wonderful fundraising campaign - love the personalised touch of putting actual bags together for each child. Donating here and hoping to send a few bags ourselves!

    I am working with my Mum - a retired teacher who has worked with refugee children - to put together 'childhood bags' which will have books, toys a warm jumper and socks for winter. I am a lecturer and a mum of two with experience of running a similar campaign.
