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

Assalamu Alaykum. May peace and blessings be upon you all.

I have set this page up with the intention of helping an individual I know . He has been living on the streets, struggling to stay alive. He is truly a kind soul, with one of the most painful & heartbreaking stories. He needs help.

The funds raised will be used to provide rent for a few months. I'll personally be making sure the funds are used to provide rent. This will give him the chance to get off the streets, earn an income and live a better life. (Note: The homeless cannot work because it is not legal to employ someone who doesn't have an address).

Charity begins at home. We have a duty to show kindness & compassion, to help one another & lighten the burdens of fellow human beings. We need to do what is in our capability & serve humanity.

Let us help bring one another up. Let us unite as one. ❤️

'Whosoever alleviates [the lot of] a needy person, Allah will alleviate [his lot] in this world and the next'

Note: Being homeless means, that there is no shelter, food/water, basic necessities. It means that if you're seen sleeping on public streets/benches/doorways, you'll be moved along or fined. If you're fined & you're unable to pay, you'll be sent to prison.

The homeless are looked down upon & physically abused. The individual in question, has been beaten. He has been urinated on. He has had his tent set on fire. As a result of the injuries inflicted, he has been in hospital. The culprits were only given a warning.

I really want to help this individual, but I can't do it alone. I see goodness in him. I see a story of pain. Circumstances out of his control. He needs a chance to start afresh. He needs your help. Our help.

This is only a part of his story. I can confirm that his circumstances and need for help, are genuine. Please, if you're able to help, do so in the name of humanity, peace, love and unity. 💛✨

    I've been communicating with Jimmy. Good news, he has a job lined up! All he needs is an address. Il'l be closing the page in the next few days and withdrawing the funds to be used primarily for housing purposes. Alhamdulillah, the funds raised are sufficient. Jimmy will be off the streets and in a safe place, leading a healthier and happier life. I appreciate all of the efforts made - you guys did this. Thank you. May Allah bless you in abundance. <3
