    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Two years ago, I started making blankets for homeless people. Since then, others have joined me, by sending me woolly squares to turn into blankets and this year we've made a whopping 215 blankets that are out there, keeping people warmer.
    Last year, with your help, I was able to also send out over 200 Christmas gifts for the Homeless and I'd love to do that again this year. I have a lot of donated hats and scarves, so I need to go and get chocs/sweets/biscuits to wrap up with them, and maybe some warm socks :)
    Leftover funds will go towards the purchase of woolly stuff, to help next year's blanket production, where I aim for us to achieve 365 blankets!!!
    Thank you and Merry Christmas

      Wow, thank you all so very much. F you'd still like to share, to raise more funds, the extra will go yo Blankets for the Homeless supplies. This year, so far, we've produced 220 blankets and I'm aiming for 365 next year. Woolly supplies are extremely useful xx

    BftH has been going for three years. In 2016 we have so far produced and distributed 215 blankets, to UK Homeless. In 2017, my vision is to produce a blanket each day. I am grateful to all my supporters, who knit/crochet/sew, seemingly tirelessly to help me achieve my goals x
