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.

Kris and myself are organising a fundraising Zumba class on 1st December to raise donations for Wythall Animal Rescue's Christmas Shoe Box Appeal.
This Sanctuary is really close to our hearts, if I could, i would adopt all the animals from them :D We also used to volunteer here on the weekends, but unfortunately our schedule got so busy we are unable to do it anymore. Therefore we are trying to give them as much help as we can in other ways, by raising donations and awareness for their Sanctuary.
Their Annual Shoe Box Appeal is part of our own Christmas traditions, this is going to be 3rd year of shopping, wrapping and donating our gifts for them. When we first heard about their appeal, our aim was to fill three boxes with some treats, but we ended up filling our car boot with £100 amount of goodies :) After that we decided that every year we are going to shop for them for this amount, istead of buying something for each other. Last year was our second year of giving, and since I started teaching Zumba a couple of months before, i launched my first charity Zumba class, because i was able to have a bigger reach to spread the word. And with the participants donations (both gifts and money) we managed to double the amount we were able to give for the Sanctuary.
We don't want to stop here, this year we are aiming even higher :) We would love to raise at least £200 and top that up with our own £100, and add the donations we get from our charity class participants! It might sound ambitious, and we don't want to break anyone's banks, but every little penny really helps, and makes a big difference in the end.
As we want to give something to you too, we would like to invite you to join us for our morning event, filled with Zumba, laughter, sweat, booty shaking and unexpected, unapologetic, free-spirited fun on the 1st December in Dickens Heath Village Hall. The class is free with donations, you can fill a shoe box with treats for one of the animals, wrap it and bring it to the class! If you prefer to contribute with money instead, it will be fully used to buy necessities for the Sanctuary. You can make your donation here, or at the door at the event. We are really grateful for everyone's contribution, let's move to give, and have fun together to make the Christmas of the Sanctuary's residents filled with love .
