£220raised of £300 target by 14 supporters

    Weʼve raised £220 to provide backpacks with socks, hats, scarfs and blanket for the homeless around the Christmas period

    Coventry, United Kingdom
    Funded on Tuesday, 20th December 2016

    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.


    For many years I have wanted to volunteer and help the homeless around Christmas. You may ask why now? And why around Christmas? Well, having a child and working away from Coventry, there has been limitation in time. I feel Christmas is the time to be around family, for the homeless they are alone...very alone. So I thought what would cheer them up? And the answer for me is that they're not forgotten. With this money I will be making backpacks, with a warm blanket, thermal socks, hats, a scarf. Thinking of other things as well. Any donation will be appreciated. x

      Thanks everyone I have reached my target of £300, thanks to everyone's support. Please keep donating, as the more you give the more I can buy for the homeless. Any goods donations would be good too...please pass to Paul.(no one else as they are not reaching us).
