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.
After recent personal experiences my eyes have been opened to the increase in homelessness around Bolton. I have spent the last week walking around the town noticing all the unfortunate people sleeping rough.
I have put a lot of thought into how I could help these people.
To begin I would like to create some homeless packs, rucksacks. Inside each one will be the following;
Toiletries (sanitary towels for women ect)
Flask for hot drinks
Any other ideas will be gratefully received.
I have recently had to take some time off work and my children are in full time school. My plan is to start with this. Keep myself busy during the day helping others. The big plan for moving forward, I would like to create a homeless cafe. A base for the day time where they can just come and sit down for a hot drink and a sandwich in the centre of the town.
Please help me make the lives of the homeless of Bolton that little bit more comfortable.
