Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Unfortunately, our Store Manager was diagnosed with stomach cancer last year. It came as a shock to us all, and as you can imagine an even greater shock and emotional strain on him and his family. By setting up this fund raising page we aim to raise enough money for him and his family to spend as they wish. At such a difficult time, we wanted to show our utmost support, and we need your help.
Our store manager is one of the most caring people we have ever met, he has an enormous heart and puts everyone else before himself. His persona and attitude towards life is phenomenal, and even during such a emotionally difficult time, his care and strength for his family as well as the people around him, is like no other. Colleagues have described him as, "caring", "passionate", "loving" and "humble".
He really is an outstanding human being.
As a team we have pulled together to hold a charity event in support of him and his family, where we will raise money for his chosen charity. The event will be a time for everyone to come together and try to create what we hope to be a positive atmosphere for him and his family. During the event there will be food and an array of activities such as a raffle and disco.
A number of stores are also holding their own charity events or fundraising opportunities to show their support. Additionally we have set up this fund raising page. The money raised will be given to him and his family to spend as they wish, whether that be another charitable donation or to use the money for some quality family time such as a holiday.
Our manager has shown nothing but support to us here at Tunstall, as well as many other stores that have had the pleasure of working for him. Now it is time for us to pull together and show our gratitude by supporting him and his family.
Thank you in advance for your support and care.
