£85raised of £200 target by 15 supporters

    Weʼve raised £85 to buy a wholesale amount of emergency blankets to give to the homeless during the winter. They radiate 90% of body heat back to the user.

    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.


    There are many people sleeping rough on the street and unfortunately, the number is increasing.

    The aforementioned people have found themselves in this predicament for various reasons so please, do not judge them.

    I am seeking help from the public to allow me to purchase a wholesale amount of "space blankets" to give to the homeless to keep them warm, dry and sheltered from the elements.

    Also known as survival blankets or first aid blankets, they are commonly used by first aiders in the treatment of shock and hypothermia. They are effective even in wet conditions and may be used in conjunction with traditional fabric blankets. They are windproof, water proof, can be used as a makeshift shelter and they reflect 90% of body heat back to the user.

    Lets all chip in and help people less fortunate than ourselves. When I reach the amount suggested, I will purchase the blankets and take a screenshot of the order so we can all see the progress we have made.

    Every little helps, even if you just donate £1, you can be proud of yourself knowing that you've done your bit to keep someone warm and dry.

    I take no comission. My reward is seeing the look on the persons face and hearing the words "thank you", thats worth more than money to me <3

    Any questions feel free to email at:

    Thank you =)

        I have just dug out some blankets and jackets and taken them down to a homeless guy in the jewellery quarter as he has had his blankets stolen by another homeless person. Good idea. Happy to help.
