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.
Desperate times at Sunderland. The club is in the relegation zone and the possibility two relegation's in a row is an unpleasant yet very real one. There have been numerous consortium's interested in purchasing the club but every attempt has fallen through.
Short is apparently willing to give the club away for free provided the debt can be sorted out and that's where the fans come in! There are many successful Football Clubs owned by Supporters groups and trusts. Portsmouth were recently bought out by American Owners but they're on the up thanks to the supporters trust who purchased the club back when the club was cash strapped.
I can't promise the fans anything but I'm going to give Sunderland Football Club a chance at survival because if we don't do anything now then the club could just evaporate!
