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 nonprofit.

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

Story

We take our gentle and friendly miniature donkeys into care homes, dementia units, autism groups etc to provide people with the opportunity to see, touch, and talk to these amazing animals. Our feedback says, "Priceless watching smiles and hearing the memories... I never thought I would have a donkey in my bedroom!" The current situation with Corona Virus means that we have lost 95% of our income overnight. We have lost £23,500 in income so far and if the situation lasts another 6 months we will lose around £50k in income. This is money that we can't recoup and whilst we are constantly looking we are not eligible for much of the support available. We are doing our very best to keep in touch with our people through virtual visits and sending cards and letters. We need your help to be able to survive until we can restart our face to face visits. Thank you.

    We want to thank everyone who has donated in the past 24 hours, following our Facebook post. You have been truly amazing and have donated almost £1,500 between you. We have had to increase our fundraising target to reflect the loss of income that the pandemic has brought about, but with your support, we will be back out visiting, bringing smiles to peoples' faces, just as soon as we are able. Thank you all from the bottom of our Minidonk hearts.

    We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has sent messages of support & made donations over the past few weeks. It has been a difficult time for everyone and we have tried to keep in touch with the vulnerable people we visits by sending greetings cards and newsletters to every place we have visited since we launched. We are now developing activity packs for care homes, with enough varied activities to keep residents happily engaged for several sessions. We are also offering "virtual visits" via our FB page to keep in touch. Stay safe.

    We are facing a tough time along with the rest of the country. Our wellbeing visits and our public fundraising visits have been cancelled. We have lost 95% of our income overnight. We are keeping in touch by providing "virtual visits" through our Facebook page and will be sending personalised cards and letters to as many of our customers as we can. We need your help. Please make a donation, however small, if you can message us the name and address of someone who deserves and virtual visit or a card we will send them a Minidonk smile. Thank you
