    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    A friend of mine was recently talking about her experience of being hospitalised because of cancer during the Christmas period. She shared that while the staff were wonderful, she felt forgotten and very lonely. I came up with a way to help hospitalised patients feel loved and cared for this Christmas: by creating small gift/care packages that I can make up and donate to Castle Hill Hospital, who offer world class care for patients with cancer and blood disorders.

    My goal of £400 will allow me to create and donate 40 care packages. They will include items such as natural hand cream, adult colouring books, CDs, bed socks etc and I'm working closely with the hospital to make sure each package is suitable for the patients.

    I appreciate any support you can provide. I'm looking forward to seeing the smiles when I drop these packages at the hospital over the Christmas period :)

    If anyone was thinking of buying me a Christmas gift or card, please donate to this fund instead. While I appreciate your kindness I feel like I'm lucky to have good health and I'd much prefer to spread a little cheer to those who need it so much more than me, thank you.

      I lost my Mum last year and she spent a lot of time in hospital prior to her passing. I know what a great amount of pleasure your gifts will bring. Well done you for thoughtfulness.
