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 a lot of deliberation on whether to set up this crowdfunding page, I decided that for my own sanity I needed to help change something. Having seen on the news that a homeless man had died in Chelmsford back in February of this year, as a result of sub-zero weather conditions, I was truly heartbroken. I could not comprehend the fact that in this age, we as a society allow people to suffer in such a way because of their misfortunes in life. Consequently, I am setting this crowdfunding page up in the hopes that people will be compasionate enough to donate any small amount of money that they can, which will be used to buy necessities for the homeless people that we take for granted every day. The donations that you give will be spent on toiletries, blankets, women’s sanitary products, clothes, water, food and dog food (as many homeless people have fury companions). With the money I will be putting together packages for the individuals, which will include the vital possessions that will contribute to keeping them healthy and as comfortable as they can be on the street.
