    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    Myself and Matthew Brown (editor of the Thanet Star) would like to be able to go across to Calais with donations of food, clothes, shoes and other basic resources and equipment that are so desperately needed by the asylum seekers currently stuck in Calais. There are women and children also there in a separate camp with men in a separate camp. We would like to be able to buy supplies to be able to take across to help those in desperate need of our help

    No one should have to face such a crisis with no where to go and very few willing to help. These people have fled for their lives and now stuck in a camp in poor conditions with little resources and support from us. We certainly wouldn't want to be stuck in these conditions. But we can make a difference by bringing them even the most basic of things such as clothes, water and food

    A difference will be made straight away. By donating £10 we can buy new clothes, some food, water for one person. The basics that we can all take for granted yet is so crucial to people in Calais

    For every pound donated we will be able to buy food, water, clothes, shoes, blankets and other basic necessities for people to survive. We will be contacting the local aid workers in Calais to find the most up to date information in what is needed the most. If we exceed our target we will try to do more trips with varied resources that we can take over. Each donation will help us buy these things as well as be able to travel over to donate and help. We can make a difference so please donate

      I'd like to just say wow. I never expected such generosity and compassion from so many people. You guys give me great admiration so please accept all my gratitude. I can't stress enough that 100% of what we raise will go directly to buying food/resources/supplies

      A massive thank you to everyone who has pledged. We have reached our goal but let's not stop there. The more people who donate the more we are able to buy to provide much needed tents/sleeping bags/waterproofs and more. You have all shown compassion and solidarity so thank you

    I live in Ramsgate which is in the South East of Kent, just a 25 minute drive from Dover. I have watched this humanitarian crisis continue and I for one would like to help these people so desperate for help and our compassion.
