Weʼve raised £315 to Support the locals and fire brigades affected by the Forest Fires in Pedrógão Grande.
- Watford, United Kingdom
- Funded on Wednesday, 19th July 2017
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 all need to unite and support the victims, there are English, Portuguese & other citizens affected..
Last weekend, Pedrogao Grande victims suffered from a horrendous fire 'inferno' the biggest tragedy the country has experienced in years. Over 60 deaths along with homes and farms destroyed.
Over 1000 firefighters tackled this fire and four of these brave people died. I plan on sending 50% of the funds raised to the local fire fighters/stations to help with training and equipment and 50% straight to the local people in need (many of which now have no food, electric or homes).
This is close to my heart as my father lives out there and we just want to support the locals. I have previously visited the beautiful towns and people here and my heart goes out to everyone who has had to experience this disaster.
