    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    Hi, We Are A Charity/Organisation That Help The Homeless. We Also Cater For Shelters, Hostels, Homeless Shelters, Sleep Safe Projects And So Much More.
    Currently We Are Collecting For Our Shoe Box Appeal, Presents For Children In Difficult Circumstances, Our Christmas Decoration Appeal, Our All Year Round Collecting Of Donations And Distributing To Them In Need. We Are Collecting Old Quilts That Are Being Turned Into Dog Beds For The Street Sleepers, Also A Doggy Shoe Box Appeal.
    We Cover So Much And Anything And Anyone Needing Help. There Is Always Someone On Hand To Help Someone.
    We Have Amazing Voulenteers, Who Give Up Their Time To Help, This Could Be Storing Collections, Delivering Collections, Handing Of Items To The People In Need, Running Of Our Local Small Unit, All The Behind The Scenes Help With Housing/Benefits Finding Someone Somewhere Safe. Distributing Food, Soup Kitchens, And So Much More.
    We Do Most Of Our Work Through Social Media And The Response We Have Is Amazing. I Shall Add The Link To Our Facebook Page Where You Will Find Most Of The Information You Need.
    We Are Growing Rapidly, We Are Currently Based In Exeter, But Now Also Hold A Day In Torquay For Street Sleepers, Making Sure They Have All Their Needs Helped With And A Hot Meal, Plus Advice. We Are Not A Funded Charity/Organisation And Purley Rely On The Donations We Receive. We Would Be Really Grateful For Any Kind Donation You Would Be Able To Help Us With No Matter How Big Or Small.
    We Currently Are Inundated With Calls And Mesages From Many Towns, Villages, Cities, But Due To Lack Of Funds, We Are Not Possible To Cater For Everyone, Which Saddens Us. We Are Working Hard To Try And Set Up More In Different Places.
    At The Moment As Well As Our Donations Ive Listed Above, We Are Currently Trying To Feed A Lovely Christmas Meal To One Of The Sheltered Housing. We Have 40+ People Who Currently Dont Have A Christmas Dinner This Year. Thank You xx
