    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    I am planning to raise funds for the historic Plymouth Proprietary Library ( www.theppl.org.uk ), an independent subscription library and registered charity on North Hill, Plymouth. I have been dedicating my spare time to volunteering here since October 2015, the members and staff are all very friendly, and the building itself has a long and enduring history, so my fundraising will go towards sustaining this institution, its members, and its history. My first fundraising endeavor is writing a poem a day for the entirety of October 2016 and then (hopefully) getting them all bound into a printed volume, the proceeds of which will go towards the library. Following this, I aim to arrange a few local and Plymouth University-based events, so keep your ears and eyes open for developments, and please, give what you can.
    My poetry can be viewed via this link: www.laurareinbach.blogspot.co.uk

      Hey guys, it's been almost a month since this campaign closed and I am still proud of myself for 1. writing all those poems, and 2. for raising even this little bit of money as a result. It's going to help us give that little bit more back to our members in terms of service and products. Thank you again!

      Well I think I knew I wasn't going to hit target by about the middle of November, but just to let you know, I plan to re-launch this campaign when I return to Plymouth after the Christmas holidays, hopefully with more success and actual events this time. Until then, Happy Holidays!

      My my it has been a while and I have definitely been letting this campaign stagnate (granted I did have coursework to submit). But things are looking up potentially on the publishing side. And if I can get talking to people, I may be able to do a little more advertising. Had another physical donation from the wonderful Elaine Henderson who runs the library's Proofreading courses (no more courses for the foreseeable months, but if you are interested, check it out). That's all for now.

      So, the poetry challenge is now over - what a rollercoaster that was! But this campaign is by no means over. Still got over a month yet. With assignments taking up alot of my time, I haven't had a chance to address the issue of editing/publication/further fundraising. But I will do my best to get something together before the end of the month. Again thank you to everyone who has donated thus far. You're putting your money to a worthy cause.

      Your poems are alert and witty and I have enjoyed these first days. From a retiree who enjoys all sorts of literature and used to work in the Plymouth Athenaeum. I should think the PPL are delighted.
