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 charity.

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

Story

Please help us support as many homeless and vulnerable people as possible in the communities we work and live in.

There's no escaping the fact that homelessness is a problem. New government figures (autumn 2017) report that in England alone there are 4,750 rough sleepers on any one night, and a staggering 61,000 homeless families living in temporary accommodation.

At Connect Group, we want to help do something about this.

After two successful Christmas campaigns, we have decided to turn 'Pass It On' into a yearlong project, driven by the passion of our colleagues at Smiths News, Tuffnells, Pass My Parcel and Jack's beans. Thanks to them, the public, and the generosity of the people we work with, we have been able to help thousands of vulnerable people all over the UK - handing out warm clothing and hot drinks.

But we want to do more.

Over the course of the year we will be calling on you once again to get involved in Pass It On. As well as our traditional Christmas campaign where we'll be asking you to donate your pre-loved winter woollies, we'll be running spring and summer campaigns as opportunities to raise much-needed funds.

PLEASE DONATE GENEROUSLY AND HELP US MAKE A DIFFERENCE

You can help us to promote ‘Pass It On’ too, by spreading the word through social media and in your community.
