    What is crowdfunding?

    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.

    Story

    I am raising funds to help the City Plaza: Greece's Refugee hotel (photo by Nicola Zolin)

    I am going to run 100km within 31 days to help raise money for the new residents of the City Plaza Hotel in downtown Athens, Greece. These new residents are hundreds of families, many of them women and children, seeking refuge. I will have the greatest pleasure to meet and serve these family in October 2017. They have lost their homes and many more. They say you can make any place into your home. I hope that in the short time I will be with these families, I can help create a homely environment in any way I can, together with other volunteers who help run the City Plaza, Athens.

    I would also love to share with them that people from other parts of the world do care about them through this fundraising. If you would like to support this cause, feel free to either:
    -Join me in one of my runs
    - Pray for these families
    - Share this page to others
    - Send them a letter (which I can happily bring with me on my mission)
    -Donate to this page

    I have just spent one week in City Plaza and it has been such an amazing week, meeting so many wonderful people, both residents and volunteers. I love hearing stories and just being part of the Plaza life even for a short period of time. I can't wait to go back to the Plaza again
