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.
I will be running the Great East Run half marathon to support The Moses Project, an entirely volunteer led organisation which receives referrals from professionals working with families in need, providing a Moses basket full of the items both mum and baby need for the first few weeks. From baby clothes, nappies, breast pads to baby books and blankets, these items are beautifully arranged in a moses basket which also provides a safe place for baby to sleep. Since the project started two years ago, over 100 baskets have been supplied, proving how vital this service is to many.
Although donations of good quality used baskets, clothes and blankets and other items are accepted, funds are always required for brand new moses basket mattresses (one is supplied with every basket) and to purchase new items to fill the baskets when donations are running low.
To find out more about The Moses Project, please see their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/themosesproject/
My training is in full swing and I am looking forward to the run in September so please support me in raising funds for this organisation which helps families locally in our Suffolk communities.

About the fundraiser
I am running the Great East run half marathon in September 2018 to raise funds for The Moses Project, which supports families struggling to meet the financial demands of a new baby.
