  • Our Story

    This project is sort of crowdfunding idea but the difference is that it is local and funded by the people that attend the events. The aim is to bring people together on a community level and all become a pholanthropist in a micro way depending on how much a person wants to donate to a person who is in need. I have heard of a saying that charity starts at home, now I do understand that we all have different interpretations for the sed saying. To me, it says a lot about the state of society where more of us are needing help. More Financially and mentally then anything else. It is difficult being on universal and trying to budget also difficult when things start to break around you or bills start to stack up. I have no disregards for the charities that are actually helping people out many of what we are fully aware of. My vision is to create an event or a platform call out where a person from the community are nominated to get some financial help. This could be to pay for a bill or buy an appliance. To buy food, anything that is of necessity. Not saying that if someone is not nominated that their circumstance is less then the one chose so I will need to figure out a way to do this. Also, events that focus on someone’s new business start-up. celebrate them and raise funds to support them. In a climate where Government funding is scarce, it is important that community spirit is obvious regardless of the situation.

     

    I was born and raised in Nottingham and grew up amongst the arts and history community of the Afro Caribbean. Community as always been a huge art and community has always been a huge part of my identity.
