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.
Recently Bill Magowan, an active member of the extras community, sadly passed away. Some of you may recognise Bill from Thrones, some from Krypton, or anything else that he was on. One of our fellow extras realised that like many of us, Bill was down for his well earned Game of Thrones Northern Alliance jacket, and that it would needed to be cancelled.
However when we started discussing it, we thought it might be a nice gesture to get it for him, and pass it on as a gift to his loved ones.
So that's what we're looking to do, simple as. Put out a page, chip in if you want, and when we have the price of the jacket or near enough, it can be closed. If we go over, then a local charity (PIPS, something towards the homeless?) will be the recipients. I don't honestly know, I've never created one of these before and not entirely sure how it works (advice welcome!).
Thank you for your time,
