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.


Ryan was featured this week in a Sky news report (link below) and it highlighted a massive issue in our area or Tameside. He is 19 years old and homeless. He cant get benefits as he doesnt have any ID, he cant get ID because he is homeless. I couldnt stop thinking about the mess my home town was in and wanted to see if i could help. I contacted a local charity called "Infinity Initiatives" and learned that they look after Ryan along with around 50 other vunerable and homeless people just like him. I couldnt believe how far my area had fallen, so I had to act.....

Ryan has been in touch and is overwhelmed by the response and wants to thank everyone for their support so far. He is feeling much better and is being supported as always by his care team at Infinity. In the interest of clarity, I have increased my funding target to £5000 and ALL money raised will go to Infinity Incentives and not to Ryan directly. This will go a very long way to help Ryan and many others in need. Thank you everyone x

    We don’t have Sky, so this is the first I’ve heard of Ryan and his heartbreaking story. This is for him & all those others whose stories haven’t been told, in the sincere hope they too can get help.
