Weʼre raising £500 to Provide to the homeless in Telford
- Telford, United Kingdom
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.
Recently we have helped a homeless man called Bernie who was sat outside in the harsh weathers from the snow, with nothing but a blanket. So my sister and I decided to buy him a blanket, gloves, a hot drink and a hot meal to try and warm him up. The whole experience was truely heartbreaking to see a kind, and humble man like Bernie on the street this Christmas. He was so thankful and happy to recieve the items we gave him especially the gloves as he had just lost his own. The money that we will be raising will be going towards items and places to stay for not only Bernie but for other homeless people in and around the Telford area. We're not asking you to donate hundreds of pounds, we're only asking that you contribute in a way. You'd want all the help you could get if you were in that situation or someone you knew was. Christmas is a time for giving and being together, so lets give to the homeless this Christmas.

About the fundraiser
Telford, United Kingdom
My sister and I are just two normal teenagers living in the Telford area, that are deciding to make a difference to the homeless people's lives. We both hate seeing people on the street struggling, and believe that we can do more, to help their quality of life.
