    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

    Taxi Gratis is a personal humanitarian project, started in April, 2013. Being aware of the transportation problems the people with health/financial problems have when they must travel to/from hospitals, and also because i encountered the same problem with my mother (who died of cancer 3 years ago), i decided to get involved personally in this matter.

    I help people with heavy health and financial problems, transporting them for free from/to the hospital (handicapped, blind, people suffering of cancer, leukemia etc.) Our national medical service doesn't provide a transportation vehicle for the people that are in bad condition when they get out from the hospitals. I wish to help more people and i need your support to do it further.

    My name is Alex Bobes, i am 27 years old and i live in Bucharest, Romania.

    Funding the project since 2013 from my own budget was hard, because i had to cover all the expenses (gasoline, car parts etc.), but i managed to do it and help around 10-15 persons/week. There are many helpless people, old persons, handicapped & blind out there, they all depend on us. I want to extend this project in all areas of Bucharest and be at their side.

    Because i use my personal car, often i cannot help the people with not foldable wheelchairs. I intend to buy an adapted car for people in wheelchair and transport them safe.

    You can see the project's history on our website (http://www.taxigratis.ro) and on our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Taxi.Gratis.ro).
