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 charity.

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


I am sending 1200 kids books to my friends Guy Bastable and Anne Irungu of New Life Home Trust to give to the poorest schools and orphanages in Kenya. They have little in the way of resources and our educational packs - including audiobooks, e-Books and art pack will provide much needed resource. The books have been recorded by Game of Thrones, The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings stars, free of charge and printed by myself and illustrated by scots artist, Scott McGregor. We have to raise £2500 to get the there. Please help.
