Weʼre raising £300 to Fund a community initiative to help homeless people
- London, United Kingdom
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.
Homelessness is on the rise each year in London, and with the harsh winter months life on the streets can be a difficult place to survive. It's more than likely most of us have encountered a homeless person and maybe wondered how they ended up in this position and what could be done to help. So we at Fighting Well have decided to hold a community event in Hackney to provide the local homeless people with the basic everyday essentials that are hard to come by on the streets.
The aim is to provide enough grab bags for the 100 people expected, these bags will contain toiletries and socks. We will also be running a grooming service, providing clean fresh clothes and hot food will be provided by StoreHouse London soup kitchen.
That is where YOU come in! We need your donations to raise £300 to make up these bags and fill them with the daily essentials. We would also be happy to collect the following items from you: men's clean clothing, women/men's footwear and coats/jackets. Could we please request that these items are clean and in good condition. We are also requesting donations of rucksacks/back packs and travel bags, these bags provide the homeless people with a way to take the items away and also somewhere to store them.
Please support this cause, whichever way you can. Every little helps and will go a long way in making a difference to someone's life.
This event takes place on 18th February 2018 at StoreHouse London
