What is crowdfunding?

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

Story

There are so many homeless people living in our towns that we don't even know about. They walk amongst us everyday unseen and unheard, all with different backgrounds and sad stories to tell.
In the winter months their situatiions worsen because of the declining weather.

I want to make a difference to those in desperate need by offering as many homeless people a rucksack filled with winter essentials as possible.
The rucksacks will be purchased by my own company Corinne's Cake Creations and supplied at a discounted rate by M &J luggage.
The idea of a rucksack is it can be attached to a persons back whilst walking or resting so have less chance of it being stolen.
The rucksacks will be filled with socks/gloves/toiletries/water/snacks/postcard and stamp etc etc which is what all monies from here will go towards purchasing as well as direct donations of items from the public
These bags will then be packed and taken to the Night Shelter Charity where they will distribute to those most needy over the Christmas period.
Any amount you can donate will make so much difference and hopefully make someone smile this Christmas time.

Thank You
Corinne

    Good on you for doing this. I was going to donate food for the homeless to the Savation Army this year but came across this, which is also a good idea. Are you collecting second hand coats too?
