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.
Chandos House, Bristol is a unique residential unit that helps men from all over the UK to escape the cycle of addiction to drugs and alcohol and ending up in prison. It will be closed if they don't raise 100,000 pounds in the coming days. Local councils are struggling to afford to send people there although it is such an effective treatment. Closing it will cause far more problems and costs for the public purse. Let us fight to keep it open by each contributing a small sum. Even just £5 will help if enough of us join together. Together we can help keep this great organisation open. Will you help? (For more information start listening at 29.33) BBC Radio 4 World at 1 Report on Chandos House by Jon Kay
