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.
Hello, my name is Daisy Hawkins, I am 15 years old and the founder of Happy Bags.
Happy Bags are full of toys, surprises and goodies for ill children in hospital. A spell in hospital can be a scary and overwhelming experience for many adults, let alone children. My aim is for Happy Bags to entertain children who are in hospital and bring a smile to their faces!
On 4th November 2016 my Dad and I delivered the first ever batch of Happy Bags to children at Bramble Ward in the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital. As this is a very new idea and there is nothing else like it in the UK, I saved up my own money to fund the first batch.
I would really, really appreciate it if you could donate to the next batch of Happy Bags which will be special Christmas editions, for children who will be in hospital over the festive season. These will be delivered in December. Every penny raised is spent entirely on buying the contents of Happy Bags, and any money raised over the target will go towards funding a further batch of Happy Bags in February.
Any amount you can donate will be hugely appreciated! For example just £5 can fund 20 mini toy cars for these bags, and £10 will fund 40 packs of colouring pencils.
Please donate and help me put a smile on the faces of children who will be in hospital this Christmas. You can see how the funds are spent by following me on Twitter and Instagram @daisyshappybags or like the Happy Bags page on facebook... #makingkidssmile
With huge thanks,
