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.
We are holding a sleepout with a difference where we're asking people to take part in our sponsored event to raise money for local homelessness charities and organisations in Manchester.
You can pick which one you want to raise the money for, because they're all truly incredible and different people relate to different ones for different reasons.
We're also taking this opportunity to educate people on other ways they can get involved with homelessness. We're not just sitting you guys out in the cold for 12 hours in an attempt to replicate homelessness because that is something we could never even come close to doing, nor would we want to. Instead, we're using this opportunity to invite in guest speakers from charities, show personal accounts of homelessness and provide some thought provoking activities for everyone participating (don't worry, you can sleep if you want to, but there will be lots going on if you can't).
If you're interested please sign up and get your ticket now. We do only have limited capacity and I promise you every penny that you raise will make a difference. If you can't make it, for whatever reason, please pass on this message to someone who might be interested. I really don't need to state the obvious and tell you all how much of a huge problem homelessness is in Manchester lately, an issue that is going to continue to grow, we need to help with a long term solution, and by helping the different charities you can do exactly that.
PS - you don't even need to be a UOM student, so what's your excuse??
