What is crowdfunding?

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

Story

Christina, her 8 year old daughter Tyra, 3 year old granddaughter and elderly mother Zifa, live in Zimbabwe. They are friends of my parents and we are trying to help them. Zifa's home was virtually destroyed and they have been forced to move to the township. Christina has been diagnosed with TB and HIV and is too ill most of the time to enable her to earn a living to look after these 2 little girls. The corruption in their country means the Drs and Nurses steal drugs and sell them privately at a very high price, so there is barely any medication available to her.
My dad, is visiting Zimbabwe in January, to help Christina and her girls get back in their home. The local church have offered him help with accommodation, a vehicle and and tradesmen, but to do this he needs to raise about £3000 in total. Please help him in his extremely brave quest, my girls and I will do what we can with our fund raising, but your help is really appreciated x

    My fab lil runners managed 4.5km this weekend, through the drizzle and muddy puddles. Excellent effort, so please support them with your donations. The 5km race is only 5 days away now!
