What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

Story

I'm participating in the Nottingham Women's Centre's Big Clit Knit Event on the 26th November. We'll be getting together to knit and crochet little woolly vaginas in order to raise money for local organisations that help women. Each participant collects sponsorship for the event and can choose where that money goes.

I have chosen to use any money I raise to provide sanitary products (tampons. pads, intimate wipes etc.) for homeless women in Nottingham. The products will be donated to Souprunners, a homeless charity run by students at UoN, who will distribute them to the women they support.

A pack of tampons or pads cost around £2-£4. So if just 50 people donated £5, that would be at least 40 packs! which would make a big difference to many women, who often have to use old rags or newspaper and have limited access to bathrooms and laundry facilities.

I'll deliver the pads to Souprunners, who have a collection point on campus.

As for the fannies. They'll be collected at the end of the event and sold to raise money for other great organisations helping women and girls in and around Nottingham. And I'll document the results of my labour for you to admire :P.

    So it seems that the event at the Women's centre was cancelled without explanation. However I had already begun knitting a couple of trial objects which I think are looking pretty good. If the event gets rescheduled I'll update everyone, but of course I'll still go ahead and buy and donate items.
