£5,050raised of £3,000 target by 42 supporters

    Weʼve raised £5,050 to Help the displaced people of San Ginesio in Le Marche Italy who have lost their homes and need shelter and care as winter closes in.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    My adopted home of San Ginesio has been affected by the recent earthquakes and many of it's inhabitants now find themselves without a home or possessions and of course as winter closes in their situation could become worse. Those of us who can would like to ease their plight in some way by offering help and comfort. I set what I think will be an achievable target of £3000. If you would be so kind as to support us then any donation however large or small will be greatly appreciated. The funds will be given to the Mayor to distribute as he thinks fit.
    Thanking you all in anticipation.

      Well that's it the appeal has finished and after a late flurry of two donations yesterday the final total was £5150, amazing and I cannot thank the 44 supporters enough for donating, you will not really know how much this will mean to the displaced folk of San Ginesio, but it will be thankfully received and well spent by the mayor and his team on the ground. Grazie Grazie Mille tutti.
