What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

Story

In the early hours of Wednesday 14th June, the residents of Grenfell Tower were awoken to a massive fire which engulfed their home.

In this tight-knit community, many families have lost everything they own, whilst others have lost their lives. Others no doubt will have lost family members, friends and colleagues.

My school's website can confirm that I am an employee there, for anyone with concerns over the authenticity of this page: http://www.kensingtonaldridgeacademy.co.uk/grenfell-tower-justgiving-page/

The money raised will go to the residents of Grenfell Tower and will hopefully, even in some small way, help them with whatever they may need in the aftermath.

Thoughts and prayers to everyone affected.

    The money will be distributed by leading community based charities with whom we are already in discussion with. They are experienced in small grant giving and have and excellent knowledge of North Kensington. We will select the charities to do this as quickly as possible. Thank you again for all of the donations, and as soon as I can update you again, I will. Haley.

    (Part 2/2) We will be setting up a programme through one or maybe two established charity partners with the objective of the money going to the individuals and families that were residents of the Grenfell Tower at the time of the fire. Of particular focus will be children and trauma counselling for all ages, alongside helping the community move forward from this in the strongest way possible. In summary- short-term relief and long-term support.

    (Part 1/2) Thank you again for all the kind words and donations on this page; I’m overwhelmed by the support and generosity shown, which I had not anticipated at all! I and my colleagues at Kensington Aldridge Academy are insistent that the money is distributed to those who need it, through proper means, and speedily. In-between teaching and helping the school get back up and running, I have been working on how best this money can be used to help those in Grenfell Tower and the surrounding community.

I am the Y8 Director of Learning at Kensington Aldridge Academy and the local community have been devastated by this awful fire. It is a really close-knit community and the trauma will be felt for years to come. I'd like to help in any way possible.
