    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.


    The problem I am trying to solve is homelessness. I care about it because I have always been brought up to help those who are less fortunate than us. I walk past a number of homeless people practically every day, sat out in the freezing cold with a coffee, blankets etc or even with a dog or sleeping in doorways of shops, unused buildings and various other places. A lot of people just walk past them not even giving them a smile or a simple hello. I am fundraising because I want to help them feel a bit better about their situation by buying hats, scarves, gloves, warm blankets and clothing and hot meals and drinks. We all take life for granted sometimes and would love to help those less fortunate so please donate whatever you can, even if its a £1 to buy a hot drink or something to eat. Thank you all in advance xx

      Thank you to everyone who donated so far, I received this selection of items off a woman to give out to the homeless and help them keep warm this winter! Every little helps so even if you can donate £1, I appreciate it.
