    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    One in five children in Bournemouth live below the poverty line according to shocking statistics. More than 6,000 youngsters in the borough live in families struggling to make ends meet & many are going hungry, said the Campaign to End Child Poverty.

    Bournemouth Basket Brigade will take place for the second time in 2016 where we'll create food hampers for 100 disadvantaged families in Bournemouth, working closely with local community services to identify families most in need.

    We believe it's important to share our blessings with families who may not have food to eat at Christmas.

    "One small act of generosity on the part of one caring person can transform the lives of hundreds. It takes only one light to dispel the darkness, and even just one basket can bring hope to a family.” Anthony Robbins

    Our volunteers will gather together on 17th December to pack and deliver gift baskets with food for Christmas Day.

    Every penny generously donated will be spent on buying the fresh produce to create our Christmas baskets.

    Each basket costs £15 to make and deliver (this will feed a family of 4), although 'Just Giving' allows you to donate exactly what you want. So whether you donate £1 or £100 you'll be helping to feed families in Bournemouth this Christmas.
