    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

    Valentines Day celebrates love, friendship and companionship. But what happens if you have no-one to share it with, or no-one who wants to share it with you? On Valentines day there will be over 13,000 homeless people who will be alone on the streets across the UK. A number that continues to rise every year.

    We are Desi and Laura and on 14th February we are going to give back and share the love and compassion with those who are less fortunate. London is Britain's homelessness centre with every 1 in 59 people living on the street. We will visit some of the worst boroughs of London for homelessness and give away free pizza, snacks and drinks in an attempt to share this day with those who are in most need.

    One act of kindness, can go a long way. Research has shown that giving makes us far happier than receiving. Giving money to others or to charity will put a much bigger smile on your face than spending it on yourself!

    So please join us in our cause by giving the gift of love and compassion to those who most need it on Valentines Day, and donating to our JustGiving page. Any remainings will be donated to Shelter, the charity for housing and homelessness.

    Generosity and caring for one another is what makes us human, let’s not forget that.

    Homelessness Facts:

    One in every 200 people in UK are homeless, according to Shelter

    Across the UK over 13,000 people are sleeping on streets and in temporary accommodation, and the numbers continue to rise

    Since 2010 rough sleeping estimates show an increase of 169%

    8,000 people sleep rough on the streets of London every year

    London’s Outer Boroughs, Westminster and Camden are the top three boroughs that reported the highest number of new rough sleepers.

    London, where one in every 59 people are homeless, remains Britain’s homelessness centre. Of the top 50 local authority homelessness “hotspots”, 18 are in Greater London, with Newham, where one in 27 residents are homeless.

    With support, people can leave homelessness behind.

      Hi guys, Thank you all so much for your kind donations once again! There seems to be no better time to look at the issue of homelessness, with the terrible weather conditions this week. We wanted to share a video from our "Pizza Day" with you, which captures many of the emotions and questions we encountered: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8OK4tnF9zk&t=18s Thanks to your generous support, we also had enough to donate to charities - WarmerStreets Project and St. Mungos - who provided thermals and vital support for homeless people.
