    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

    On the 20th July 2017, our dearest brother and friend, Jagraj Singh, lost his fight against cancer, aged 38.

    A few weeks on from Jagraj’s passing, we’re left to assess the huge hole he’s left within the wider community but also in his immediate family, his wife Sukhmani Kaur, and their 3 young children, one of whom was just 6 weeks old when Jagraj passed away.

    Unfortunately, Jagraj Singh didn’t have life insurance cover against terminal illnesses. Given the large reduction in the family’s income, we, as close friends of the family have set up a fundraising page to help Sukhmani Kaur pay off the family's mortgage and finance the children’s long term education. We invite everyone who was inspired by Jagraj Singh to contribute, however small or large.

    As an Oxford graduate and former British Army officer, Jagraj Singh spent the last 5 years pursuing a life long passion spreading the wisdom and philosophy of the Sikh teachings. In a very short space of time he reached a truly global audience via the Basics of Sikhi YouTube channel, travelled the world challenging people to make positive changes to their own lives and wider communities and bringing many people together for the greater good of humanity. He was awarded the prestigious Points of Light award from Prime Minister Theresa May for outstanding contribution within his community, and received a personal letter from the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau.

    This work was only made possible by the way Jagraj and Sukhmani worked as a team. Sukhmani was instrumental in helping set up the Everythings13 charity and continues to play a vital role in the charity’s day to day management. In parallel to working on the original design, logos and website for the organisation, she developed and continues to create kids games and activity books (www.MightyKhalsa.com), and set up the toddler group (Kiddie Sangat) which now has 4 branches in the UK and many more in India.

    Jagraj Singh initially undertook this work out of selfless service (seva) without any personal monetary gain. He and Sukhmani agreed he give up his successful career in the city to work on the charity fulltime, approaching the wider community for funding. He simply asked that if people saw the value of the charity’s work, they support him to fund a basic salary of £27,000 per annum to cover the cost of his mortgage and provide for a basic lifestyle for his young family.

    We hope the financial support raised through family, friends and wider community will enable Sukhmani Kaur to continue her vital role in the charity and community projects that Jagraj and her worked on together, while allowing her to raise her young family as a single parent.

    Please note, this is the only fundraising effort with the approval of Sukhmani Kaur. It has been organised by friends of Jagraj Singh and Sukhmani Kaur and is not connected to Everythings13 or any other affiliated organisation.
