    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

    Reading, like many towns, has a large number of homeless on it's streets. Many of these people are there through no fault of their own. Having spoke to many of them, we realise that, if we lost our jobs, it wouldn't be long before we too could be homeless. Without the support of family and friends, it could be us with no roof over our heads. To try to help, we have started 'Project Serena', a Monthly Soup/food kitchen which gives away free food, clothes and sleeping bags to those in need.

    Currently, this is funded by the generosity of members of the Thames Vale Vultures Motorcycle Owners Group (www.tvvultures.co.uk ), as well as some kind members of the public. We'd like to be able to give more. Sometimes, we run out of food and there are still people waiting in line for something to eat.

    We are hoping to raise £1000 which will provide food and drink to Readings homeless. It will help us pay for the Food, Drink and other items such as Cups,Paper Towels and cleaning materials that we use as well as the gas for our stove. Every penny raised will only be used directly to fund Project Serena. No-one takes money, everyone is an unpaid volunteer and always will be.
