Courage Over Fear Foundation
Hi and welcome to the Courage over Fear Foundation.
We came up with our Courage over Fear motto over 5 years ago now and often wondered what we could do with it in real terms, the world is full of cliches and motivational rubbish that is all well and good but seems a little shallow and pretentious without genuine action.
With that in mind we decided to create the Courage over Fear Foundation raising funds for the less fortunate and vulnerable members of our society, minus the relentlessly annoying begging adverts, 8 hours of celebrity television blackmail and paying charity C.E.O's 200k a year.
How Does It Work ?
Keeping it as simple as possible we will take direct donations from as little as £5 and pool that money until it reaches £100 and then we will purchase £100 worth of toiletries, sandwiches and tobacco and hand it out to the homeless directly, simple, personable charity giving.
The only charges we take from donations are the charges we receive from PayPal / World Pay for processing the donation and maybe a couple of butties for the volunteers ( less than 5% )
All donations and accounts will be made available upon reaching the £100 targets.
Please be aware this is not an official registered charity they wanted over a grand to register, we would rather give that to people that need it.
Initially we will be taking provisions into Manchester City Centre for the homeless as we are based in Manchester.
Eventually we would like to expand the foundation to more cities and other vulnerable members of society, helping them directly, from buying food for the homeless, day trips to Blackpool for the old dears, purchasing toys and days in the swimming pool for children with terminal illness, all via your kind donations.
Volunteers are welcome to join us and help hand out the provisions, for more info please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
With thanks to
Carol Hibbert, Jane Halliday , Pete Smith , Dave Staley, Julie McGillavary, Melanie Williams, Alfie Charlesworth.
