Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Some of you will have kindly supported Jacob and I over the last 2 years when we took part in 'The Big Sleepout' for Trinity Homeless Project. Our empathy for the homeless, the many blessings that we take for granted daily and working on raising our children as kind, giving people has called us to raise money for the homeless again this year. Thank you so much for being a part of it xx
Last December, I made contact with Serena House (SHOC) and as a family we made several Christmas parcels (including socks, pants, mince pies and sandwiches etc) it was a small gesture but the appreciation we received from the homeless people that received them left a huge impact on us.
On Saturday 3rd December 2016, as a family, we will all leave the comfort of our beds to sleep outside for one night in our back garden.
We are hoping that with your donations, this year we will be able to give out gifts to help make their lives somewhat easier and give them a greater chance of surviving the cold winter ahead.
I have a list of items that the homeless people in slough are currently most in need of. This way, every penny raised will be going directly to purchase these items, helping the people that need it.
If you would prefer to purchase items yourself rather than donate, that would be fantastic (anything below would be great).
Here is a list of what your donations could buy:
- Waterproof 2 Man Tent £30
- Waterproof Rucksack £25
- Single Sleeping Bag £10
- Jumper (size medium) £10
- Pants (pack of medium) £5
- Socks (pack of) £5
- Gloves £4
- Hats £4
- Lip Balm £1
- Tooth Brush/ Paste £1
- Baby Cleaning Wipes £1
- Shampoo/ Conditioner £1
Thank you so much, we appreciate all of your support and donations.
