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.


Hundreds of thousands of refugee children live in camps in the Bekaa valley in Lebanon with limited schooling, little structure and nothing at all to do. There are no facilities for sport, so football training gives them a hobby and brings a sense of normality and fun. I've lived in Lebanon for four years, and seen that nothing changes for them. 'Football United' is bringing them the chance to play and be a team.

    As 2017 closes it's a huge Football U THANK YOU for the support you have given this year. 4 months ago, they had no structure, or sports training, or the fun of being in a team. Now that has changed for 20 kids. Football U is thriving thanks to coach Yousseff and Ali our co-ordinator and YOU, our supporters. Here is our new team strip, donated by Aichalives and PEC Zwolle. If you would like to fund specific projects for Football U please get in touch via our FB or instagram acc. Please spread the word, our GOAL is still ahead. @football_u

    Your support for Football United is superb, and we have great news. We've doubled the sessions, so there are 2 a week, with double the children playing. We are working with Yousseff, a young Syrian refugee coach, to bring football to more kids.I am determined to focus on this & the inclusion of Syrian coaches to expand the project. All of this is thanks to your amazing support, & the Football United children are thrilled that they have friends like you all. A thousand thanks & we're extending the fundraising again, so share please!.

    Thanks to the incredible support of dear friends and football lovers, we smashed through our initial target of £1200 in less than 10 days, doubled it in 20 and in just 30 days are on our way to 3 times the original target. Every penny you donate goes to hiring pitches, buying boots & balls and getting more teams of refugee children playing 5 aside football. Roman is working to train other coaches, spreading Football United through the refugee camps in the Bekaa. Football is fitness and fun. Here is a letter from one of the team!
