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.

I was part of a summer school project which brings jn local children from orphanages and the local hospital. This gives the children with disabilities a Chance ti have sone free time and fun. The next part is to purchase some land for a small farm so they can interact with some animals, grow veg, etc but also be part of caring for a small farm. So many just want to help and enjoy themselves and this is the inly tine if the year they get to do this. Money would go to Little John’s House in Cisnadiora in Romania to help make this happen.
For the past twenty years Little John’s House has been privileged to provide a secure and loving home for abandoned children with Special Needs.To retain the ‘family’ atmosphere, the home must now provide separate accommodation for adults. Any expansion at its present address would only provide bed-room space.
They are currently planning to self-build a farm complex that will have separate adult, children’s and staff accommodation, a day centre to receive many children who are not allowed to attend school, a respite care unit for distressed families and a general Centre of Excellence. With extra land, the residents would receive therapeutic education through the care of birds and animals, the planting of flowers and vegetables, and be encouraged to reach their highest potential.
