    Weʼve raised £840 to help us to give healthcare workers and carers a #virtualhug

    Funded on Sunday, 30th August 2020

    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I run a small company called The Travelwrap Company, which sells cashmere wraps. We wanted to do something to show our appreciation for the healthcare workers and carers so we are gifting one cashmere wrap a week as a sort of virtual hug to someone deserving. As a small business we can afford to gift one of our cashmere wraps a week we will continue to do that. But we would love to send a virtual hug to even more people.

    Any money that is raised in this campaign, will be used to gift more of our Scottish cashmere wraps through our weekly ballot. To be absolutely clear, we will make NO profit on this and we are just picking a name from the list rather than judging anyone. We will embroider the wraps with a heart, and the business will pay for the wrap to be delivered to the recipient – wherever they are in the world. If we raise £3000 we can send an extra 30 in addition to the one wrap we are already funding weekly. We have set up a page so that you can nominate someone that deserves it. The winners will be announced every week on our Instagram page .

        What a fantastic idea. I'm sure you will put a smile of the recipient's.

        Such a lovely idea! I have already nominated two of my special doctor friends who are doing such an excellent job.
