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.
Almost a year later, and I'm back for more! On November 5th, myself and Ari Benarroch, will be doing a sponsored Skydive for The Jewish Helpline!
Last November we raised an amazing £4500 all in all. Thank you so much to all who donated, to help us reach that amazing achievement! Even though we raised so much last November, The Jewish Helpline still need sufficient funding.
The Jewish Helpline provides a service to people across the Jewish community who are in a form of crisis. They provide a lifeline to those who are feeling lonely, anxious, depressed or suicidal. They are open from 12 noon to 12 midnight every day except Shabbat and Chagim. The service is run entirely by fully trained volunteers who take turns to man the lines, conduct training and complete all administrative tasks that come with running a professional charity.
The Jewish Helpline needs our help to raise awareness of this service within the community - by advertising and publicity. Most of all they need the funds to keep the service going and the fact that the Jewish Helpline had to shut down their JustGiving page due to insufficient funds (as it costs £15 per month for the charity) shows how desperately they are in need of our help.
Last year we were lucky enough to be able to get a video which you can watch below:
