    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    We want to expand our growing groups across other blocks on our estate in Stepney, where residents are keen to meet and grow fruit and vegetables, but don't have funding for tools for each of the blocks. When we reach our target of £200 the excess raised will be used towards buying rain water butts, which cost £130 each.

      I can't believe people's generosity; we now only need to raise £150 to buy a water butt for each of the growing groups. How fantastic is that! Thanks!

    I live on an estate in Stepney called Grand Union Place. I have lived here since it was build 5 years ago. I am on and was part of the group that set up the Grand Union Place Residents Association. I am keen on developing community spirit on the estate.
