    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We are the Let Youth Lead Youth Taking Action Committee; we are working to make positive changes across the Cliftonville area in North Belfast. We are providing a voice for young people and we want to show that young people can play a positive role in our community.

    Today we saw the news that a German couple had their motorbike stolen and burned out, we are in complete and utter disgust as it has forced them to move away from where they are staying and left them financially struggling and extremely upset. We spoke to the couple and got their email address to keep in contact with them. Out of kindness and outrage of the news we would like to try and raise money to help financially support them with their travels around the North and pay them back for this outrageous arson attack. This has disrupted their 2 week holiday in Belfast and left them distraught.

    As a youth committee we want to help make them happy after such a disgusting action and we hope that this gesture will help them see the positive side of young people and our community.

      The Youth Taking Action Committee of LYL want to say a massive thank you to everyone that has donated. Our final total raised is £2,387, we have had £100 donated from the management committee of CCRF and £60 cash donations. We were also contacted by John McAreavey who had set up a page, he kindly donated the £355.90 his page raised to ours, so once again thank you. We have been in contact with the couple and we will be making arrangements to get the money to them within the next few days.

      This was terrible and feel so sorry for these two lovely people. Just a little donation to show we are not all heartless thugs.

      Great to hear that so many decent folk have rallied round and that Martin and Liliane decided to continue with their holiday in Ireland.
