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.

We are a group of individuals in St Ives, Cornwall - we're raising funds to support Collective Aid's operations in Northern France, after one of us spent nearly a month volunteering with the organisation.
Collective Aid is a grassroots, volunteer- run organisation providing urgently needed support to refugees currently seeking safety in Europe. Collective Aid have teams on the ground in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and France.
In France, Collective Aid provides material aid (tents, sleeping bags, clothing, shoes and hygiene items) to the roughly 1500 people currently residing in Calais and Dunkirk, Northern France.
With Coronavirus taking hold, the refugees and migrants CA supports are being plunged into an even deeper crisis. Food and medical services are dwindling, tensions are high - and to make things worse there are ever more frequent reports of police intimidation and brutality.
Collective Aid is one of the few organisations still providing essential support to these desperate people who have already been through so much. This work depends on having vehicles with which they can transport volunteers and essential supplies to refugee communities throughout the area. A new van is urgently needed to keep their services running.
Please donate generously to enable Collective Aid to help these people in their hour of need.
