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.
Due to a series of unfortunate circumstances I find myself soon to be traversing the streets of my city where I will have to learn to sleep rough. I was recently made redundant by a company going under along with half their staff, to add to it while looking for work what little savings I had quickly dwindled.
I don't normally ask others for help as I have always been more interested in helping others, but now I find myself in a time of need, I require a few hundred just to keep a roof over my head for a few weeks while I start a new job and wait for my first paycheck. I also require my birth certificate to prove to my employer that I'm able to work here in the UK. My original was lost when I was kicked out from my home. Whatever help you can give, I really do appreciate it.
