    What is crowdfunding?

    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.

    Story

    Our aim is to reach out to the homeless members of local communities and provide them with consumable and non-consumable items that will help ease the difficulties they face while living on the streets.

    The items in a care pack are currently either funded by us, or donated by friends and colleagues.

    When a care pack is put together, consideration is given to a variety of things. Hygiene, dignity, nutrition, warmth, and comfort are all important factors in providing a homeless person with practical, respectful assistance. They include a variety of snacks, toothpaste/toothbrush, wash/shower gel/soap, wipes, can opener, travel mug with tea & coffee, sleeping bag, yoga mat for the floor, warm clothing, socks, hats, gloves, and any other items we think will be of value.

    When giving a care pack it is important for me to spend time connecting with the person if possible. One of the most difficult challenges a homeless person faces is isolation. Often, homeless people are deliberately ignored and avoided, some are even abused. This significantly reduces the likelihood of them receiving an offer of help. So I make a deliberate effort to maintain eye contact and show each person that they still matter.

    While there is an initial target set at £200, giving care packs out is something I will continue to do for the foreseeable future so fund raising will continue throughout.
