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.
The "What?": Beam is an innovative, long-term solution to homelessness that works by crowdfunding employment training for homeless people and supporting them into stable work.
Cloudera is the modern platform for machine-learning and analytics, optimised for the Cloud.
Confused? Opposites attract...
At Cloudera, we're passionate about using data to drive business transformation.
We make "what is impossible today, possible tomorrow".
But our work goes beyond the corporate - and for good reason.
At the root of every successful business is an idea - multiple ideas, even.
Building a business takes hard work, tenacity, and resilience - and behind every successful business are people who have been given the chance to pursue their dreams.
The question is simple: what kind of world do we want to be living in?
As part of our involvement in this year's Strata Data Conference , we've decided to give back. We've pledged that we'll donate up to £4,000 to help Beam's members forge better lives for themselves.
Everyone deserves a chance - and the stats are stark.
Homelessness is devastating, dangerous and isolating; on average, homeless people die at the age of just 47.
People sleeping on the street are almost 17 times more likely to have been victims of violence.
More than one in three people sleeping rough have been deliberately hit or kicked or experienced some other form of violence whilst homeless.
Homeless people are over nine times more likely to take their own life than the general population.

About the fundraiser
By day, EMEA Marketing Operations Specialist at Cloudera; by night, social impact warrior. Put simply, I care about people, and I want to make a difference in the world. Plot twist: sometimes the two collide. (I love it when that happens!) The rest, as they say, is history...
