    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    Myself, daughter Diane Neish, her friend Lizzie Kenyon Smith and a work colleague of mine Philomena Carrison are going to be running 5k everyday during the month of December. We are trying to raise money for a wonderful lady called Charlotte Del Rio who runs a rescue charity for Spanish Greyhounds or Galgos as they are called in Spain. These dogs are used for hunting and racing, but once they have served their purpose they are either dumped by the roadside to fend for themselves or worse killed.
    Charlotte roams the streets looking for these poor souls or people bring them to her and she provides shelter, food and veterinary care but all this comes at a cost. We are looking to raise as much as possible and if even half our friends dontated a pound, a euro or even a dollar this would be amazing. Charlotte is a registered charity which can be viewed via this link http://www.112carlotagalgos.com/en/
    Please give what you can as this is not an easy challenge (155k in 31 days) for an old fella like me as we will be doing this come rain, sleet, frost and probably snow. Thanks in advance.

      Thank you so much to everyone who donated to our challenge. Hopefully your donations will help Charlotte carry on doing what she does best, and that is looking after and caring for the abandoned Galgos of Spain.
