    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    Sadly many children in our local communities through no fault of their own will wake up on Christmas morning to little or no gifts to open. Returning to school after the holidays having nothing to tell school friends about.

    EVERY child deserves to be happy on Christmas Day. EVERY child deserves to have a gift to make them smile.

    Please help Cody complete his toy box challenge by donating either a new toy to Holyrood Boxing Gym or a donation to buy toys to fill the biggest Edinburgh toy box with toys for Edinburgh kids.

    Many Thanks

      WE DID IT ... we all did it !!! Cody's Xmas Toy Box wasn't just filled but was overflowing with 1000's of toys AMAZING Toys to be given out to local children to allow them to have a happy Christmas too!! I want to thank EVERYONE that helped me reach my target I did get more cash donations and every penny was turned into toys, I'm very proud of myself for boxing 9 children back to back and I'm proud of everyone that took the time to care. Cody's Xmas Toy Box has closed its lid ready to arrive in houses on Xmas morning. Thank you - Cody 🎁

      Only 2 full days to go to collect as many toys and donations as I can to add to Cody's Toy Box. I've have a busy few days collecting toys from friends and family. I also visited Virgin East Coast who very kindly donated £1000 worth of toys and lots of staff gave toys and money too. I got to sit in the divers seat of a train and I had to wear a safety jacket and hard hat. I felt quite famous as everyone wanted a selfie with me but I said they should all feel famous too for being part of Cody's Toy Box and making a difference. Thanks-Cody x

      So yesterday I handed out my flyers at Easter Road to everyone going into the match. It was freezing cold but my friends Eva and Jack helped me so we got it done a bit quicker. Then at half time I went on the pitch to do the half time draw and the man from Hibs told everyone about Cody's Xmas Toy Box and how giving a toy or a donation would help children and families have a good Christmas this year. I also got a call from Calvery Park football team and they want to help Cody's Toy Box too. Everyone is still being so kind. Thank you - Cody

      Everyone has been very kind and given lots of toys and money. We have been given a bike to add to the toy box from The Edinburgh Taxi Trade also local shops have been very generous too. I have stepped up my training programme and finding it really really hard to Box different boxers one after the other when they are fresh and ready to box but I'm getting more and more tired. I've managed 6 upto now but this challenge is so important and everyone has been so kind I'm determined to box on until I've completed my challenge. 7 sleeps 🙈
