    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Do you really need another Christmas jumper?

    Mathius, Kevin and their friends need a jumper for the new school year which starts in January.

    Just £5 will buy sufficient yellow and green yarn to knit a jumper for a Child Africa student. At 2347m it gets cold during the day and even colder at night in the Kabale hills. This is often the only jumper a child will own. However, the jumpers need replacing as the children outgrow them or through constant wear and tear they are no longer usable.

    Local Ugandan women will machine knit the jumpers - so you are also helping them to earn money to feed their families.

    Donating to notjust4christmas is a gift that gives twice - to the child and to local Ugandan women. Thank you for reading this. Please share with your family, friends and colleagues. Every donation will make a difference.

    After I had worked with Child Africa in Kabale in 2014, family and friends wanted to do more. We've raised £6500 towards a scIence classroom, equipped 85 school dormitory beds with knitted blankets and we hope that you will support our notjust4christmas school jumper appeal.
