Weʼre raising £20,000 to support What About Weddings as it enters a critical new phase of lobbying for financial assistance, in response to the roadmap announcement.
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.
HELP FUND THE WHAT ABOUT WEDDINGS CAMPAIGN AND GOVERNMENT LOBBYING WORK
We are now actively seeking donations and sponsors to support our campaign as we enter a new phase of supporting the wedding industry, in response to the Prime Minister's roadmap announcement.
What About Weddings is a grass roots, not-for-profit campaign movement, run exclusively by volunteers who donate their time and expertise on a pro-bono basis. It will continue to operate this way, and we always welcome more talent and dedicated campaign supporters to our core team.
There are however some unavoidable costs that have so far been covered personally by our Campaign Managers. The reality now is that we do need financial support to assist What About Weddings in taking our campaign to the next level with speed and agility, in order to react quickly to the crisis that impacts the lives and livelihoods of so many.
There are two ways to help fund the work being undertaken by What About Weddings; donations and sponsorship.
Donations of any size can be made via this Just Giving page, or via our website at https://whataboutweddings.co.uk/donate/.
Every single pound and penny donated counts towards the urgent and intensive level of work now required, and we thank each and every one of you for ALL your support, and want you to know that any donation is so very gratefully received.
2. SPONSORSHIP: Become a Friend of What About Weddings
If you would like to become an official sponsor and Friend of What About Weddings, with a donation of £500 or more, we kindly invite you to complete the form in section 2 on this page of our website: https://whataboutweddings.co.uk/donate/
Please note: When funds are no longer required, any surplus will be fully donated to a charity of our friends/followers choice. We will also publish full details of any spend.
Thank you so very much for your generosity and your support.

Hello everyone, Thank you so much for following and supporting our movement. As we enter a highly critical new phase of campaigning and government lobbying, we have edited our JustGiving page to explain how we wish to repurpose these funds. We will be hosting a Zoom session on Weds 10th February, 2-3pm, for anyone who has already, or who is considering funding our work, so that we can explain in full how we intend to use the funds. Please keep your eye on our website and social media between now and then for details. Thank you so much.

Thank you for all of the brilliant work you have done. It is great that weddings have been included in the road map so we can now plan ahead with some positivity.

I support any campaign that represents livelihoods and seeks to renormalise all the facets of human interaction that we've criminalised this past year. Government restrictions are harming society!
