My cause is for a family very close to my heart. They've had a very troubled life. Their father left them to go to jail for something he had done leaving the family in debt, without a home and a broken family. With 3 children, one disabled, They moved to Reading UK to start life over. but it didn't get better. They ended up keeping his things, moved into a council house. with no job to start off with and a child to look after at home, they didn't have much choice. the eldest child at 16 had to start working while still at school to get money. Although as soon as this happened the council became reluctant to help. They cut down their benefits. Soon enough times got worse and she had to leave work. She left school to stay at home and look after her siblings. Her mum started working within the limits that would still allow her to get benefits to be able to feed her children. Debt was getting worse. bills weren't being paid because there wasn't enough income to pay all of them. The council refused to help. They were told that they would not help as they already have a mortgage for a property in Devon. Although, this property was less that a shell. Half of the building had fallen down, the windows and doors had been smashed by local youth. Graffiti everywhere, holes in the floors. This was no place for anyone to live in let alone a child. But the council stuck to their decision. This family had tried everything. been to every council in Reading and they all refused to help. They are now being made homeless. They are to give in their keys tomorrow and then they are being forced to move out with less than a weeks notice. I need to help them. I have to. I can't sit by and watch this happen to a wonderful family. please help me raise money to they can get a property to rent and have a stable home to live in. anything will do. anything you can give will be much appreciated. Thank you.

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
