    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Please can you help us raise money to help pay for our new buddy bench for school!

    We are wanting to purchase this bench in memory of Esme who would have been starting school this September with her friends.

    The idea of the buddy bench, is to bring children together. The buddy bench is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground and to help spread the message of inclusion and kindness. It’s designated as a place where a student can sit if he or she feels lonely or just wants to talk. Then other students notice this and are encouraged to visit the student and help them.

    The bench is made out of Recycled Plastic the plastic is made from milk containers saved from going to land fill!

    The company is partnered with the NSPCC and donate a percentage of the profits from each Buddy Bench sold to the charity. The profits made from each sold Buddy Bench will help fund the NSPCC in their efforts of keeping children safe, healthy and happy.

    If we raise more than we need we will donate this to school.

    Thank you for your support with this xx
