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.

Thousands of stray dogs are struggling for survival on a daily basis in Romania. Many suffer from injuries, illness or abuse. Without a rational law and no support from the government, only a few people and NGOs have made it their mission to make a difference for these homeless animals.
As two animals lovers, my sister and I are raising money as part of a personal initiative to support a private shelter in our hometown where a few hundred souls need our urgent help. They are in the care of Daniela Sandoiu and her husband, two people who have been saving hundreds of abandoned dogs since 2011. They offer them shelter and provide for their care out of their own means and only a few occasional donations. Daniela has also neutered and helped organise regular spay campaigns in order to minimize the abandonment of unwanted animals in the community. Furthermore, she strives to provide first aid treatment in emergency cases, being one of the few people I know who works selflessly to rescue dogs in need.
Daniela Sandoiu and her furry friends need to raise funds as soon as possible in order to start building new premises as they are no longer able to stay at their current place. The authorities have given until November 26th to relocate the dogs otherwise they will all be euthanized. Daniela has acquired the site on which to set up the shelter but lacks the necessary funds required to build the basic facilities. She has finished the plumbing works for the water source and is now moving onto setting up the fence which is approximately 300m long.
We are looking to raise £2000 in order to contribute to the initial costs of setting up the new shelter. Any support you could provide would be so much appreciated. All donations will go directly to Daniela so she can use them to buy materials.
