Weʼre raising £1,000 to raise funds for The Ripple Effect Lancaster to send clothing and other donations to displaced Syrian refugees in Greece.
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.
The Ripple Effect, is a small charity which is driven to do their very best to support people, arriving in Europe, who have been displaced through conflict.
They have built a team of volunteers who are working with local, national and international voluntary organisations to safely and swiftly provide aid for those who have lost everything and now have little to call their own.
They relay on donations of goods and time, to enable the collection and sorting of clothing and other items. They then need to raise cash in order to send the goods over to where they are urgently needed.
Any donation however small will help to build up funds to reach the end product of helping people to survive.
