    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.

    Story

    Today I (Lyn Farrugia) saw a very young, homeless man sitting on the floor at the entrance to Christopher Place. Everyone was hurrying past him, carrying bags full of shopping going about their daily routine. He didn't look like he had a routine, or any bags full of anything. I asked him if he had had anything to eat or drink yet and he didn't. He didn't ask for much, just a cheese and ham toastie and a white tea. He had his name down with Open Door, but they didn't have any space for him.

    Herts Young homeless can offer him short term and long term help such as travel passes, food parcels, nights accommodation etc. We are hoping with the generosity of the local community we can help this gentleman and many more to eat and stay warm this Christmas.

      Lyn has spoken to Herts Young Homeless today and told them about the funds available for them and also gained some valuable advice. HYH are going to be searching for the gentleman this evening and will discuss the transfer of funds and what it will be used for tomorrow. Thank you for all your help xxx

      Great Cause. I am donating to the Vineyard Christmas too so perhaps your young man can dine there at Christmas.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
