    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    In December, thanks to everyone's incredible generosity, we raised over £5,000 to get Moose Kid Comics (www.moosekidcomics.com) printed up and sent out to children's hospitals all over the UK. However, many people have said they'd like to donate even though the fundraiser has ended, so we've created this follow-up for anyone who wants to do just that!
    (Our original funded campaign is now here: https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/moosekidcomics1)

    We've teamed up with the brilliant charity Readathon (www.readathon.org) to help distribute our comics into hospitals, wards and hostels throughout 2016. We've also been talking to individual charities about how our comics might be able to help their causes too. Comics have the power to delight and inspire, and every penny raised (minus fees) will go towards trying to do that!

    At the moment we're still trying to work out numbers and contacts, but we're hoping to start printing the comics in early February. The first batch should be sent out in early Spring. We'll be keeping everyone informed of what happens via @moosekidcomics on twitter, and blogging about it at jamiesmart.tumblr.com. We're hoping to follow the journeys of some of the comics too, so you can really see what difference your donation has made.

    The money we raised in our initial fundraiser allows us to send comics out regularly during the year, which is brilliant. Any extra money we raise in this follow-up campaign will go to the same thing: printing more comics, paying more postage. Some of the hospitals have requested hundreds of copies, so the more we can raise, the more comics we can send out!
