    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.

    Story

    I am raising money to buy sleeping bags that will be donated to local rough sleepers. Last year, at least 78 homeless people died on the street, and homeless charity Crisis estimate that over 9000 people will be sleeping rough this year. Winter weather can be brutal for all of us, but while we can go home, put on our PJs and stick the heating on, some people will be stuck outside all night.

    I have done some research and picked an insulated sleeping bag which is suitable down to 2 degrees. This is on sale at Mountain Warehouse for £15 (see pictures attached) and once this fundraising campaign is complete I will order the sleeping bags and donate them to Jimmys, a local homeless charity that I am involved with. Jimmys provides emergency accomodation for people on the streets and also donates sleeping bags to non-residents.

    I have set a goal of £300, which would provide sleeping bags for 20 rough sleepers. Please donate anything you can. Since it is coming up for Christmas consider this a festive good deed, maybe skip a festive latte and stick a fiver towards this instead. Something as small as a sleeping bag can literally be a matter of life and death for some people.

    Thanks so much!

      Since the £300 target has been met I have been informed that the funds cannot be withdrawn for 10 days as the donations are still being processed. Once I receive the funds I will place an online order to collect the sleeping bags and drop them at Jimmys. I will keep everyone updated once I order and collect the sleeping bags, might even get a cheeky selfie as well. Thank you so much to all of you for donating - we can now provide 20 sleeping bags to rough sleepers which is amazing! Thank you x
