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 have a friend called Joshua, he's 28 years old, a widower, has many health issues and has been homeless until very recently.
The good news is, through the help of some friends, he finally has a place to live! This means he is part way to getting a job and the 'normal' life he hopes for once again...
However, he has nothing else until he can get housing benefit at the end of the month. No food, furniture, decent clothes or money for some desperately needed prescriptions as he has just come out of hospital once again. Even when he does get some benefits I doubt it will cover much once rent is paid.
I help as often as I can but can only do so much... if you can, please consider a small donation for this genuinely nice guy who just wants to get back on his feet. He doesn't drink, doesn't do drugs and therefore has been low on the priority list for help from the council so has waited a long time for this opportunity. Josh's health is deteriorating and he will be so so grateful of any help you can offer!
If you've ever walked past Gregg's/Cafe Nero in Bournemouth you may have bought this guy a coffee or just walked by and ignored him as he bid you a good day. I know many people who have met him and they all say what a nice guy he is, let's help one of the good ones because he deserves to make something of himself 👍
