Weʼve raised £285 to help support a lovely family in Lombok, Indonesia following a catastrophic earthquake.

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.
As you may be aware, recently there has been a terrible earthquake in Indonesia affecting Lombok, Gili T and Gili Meno Islands. Almost 100 people have been killed including tourists and family homes completely flattened, with thousands more seriously injured.
In the photo is my good friend Lalu, myself and my son Isaac. Last year I spent 4 weeks in Indonesia and Lalu really made my time magical by showing us the islands and beautiful beaches, along with the amazing residents who live there. Lalu has been seriously injured by a falling wall which has crushed his leg and hurt his back and is now unable to work.
I want to raise £500 for Lalu and his family which equates to over 9 million Indonesian Rupiah. This will help to feed his family for a while whilst he gets well enough to get back to work.
This guy means a lot to me. He is one of the bravest men I've ever met with the kindest heart. He doesn't have a lot to give money wise but my gosh does he have a lot of love and happiness to give. Please help him by donating as much as you can, even if it's a few pounds, every little helps.

Hi guys... I’ve been speaking to Lalu over the past few days and he is in desperate need for the money we have raised so far. He and his family are sleeping outside under sheets they’ve hung from trees because his house is ruined. They also have no gas to cook so are cooking what they can on open fires every night. I am withdrawing the £235 we’ve raised so far but this doesn’t mean I’m going to stop. Please pass this page on if you think people will be happy to donate. Becks
