10 hour art stream for my local Foodbank!

£580 of £500 goal

Raised by 26 people in 17 days
Hi there! I'm Jen, a comic creator based in Leeds, UK!
Last year I decided to do my first ever GoFundMe campaign: A 10 hour Charity twitch stream to raise £100 for my local foodbank , and you guys floored me with your support! We managed to raise over £400 to not only buy much needed emergency supplies for local people in crisis...

The show of support was so incredible that it inspired me to do it again this year!

So yes, I will be live on Creative Twitch https://www.twitch.tv/jeninator on Tuesday the 11th from 10am to 8pm GMT! (Pray 4 me XD), doing art, crafts, and generally dunking my head in coffee to stay sane!

Please consider giving a few pounds for this cause, it is needed more than ever, now with the controversial Universal Credit system being implemented and leaving many families without any money or food for Christmas.

If you are unfamiliar with Universal Credit and what it is doing to people here in Britain, here are a couple of articles on it:

Areas where Universal Credit has been implemented has seen a rush of people and families in crisis: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/apr/24/food-bank-use-trussell-trust-universal-credit-figures

Universal Credit is putting an even greater strain on food banks this month: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/nov/24/food-banks-fear-winter-crisis-universal-credit-rolled-out?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Tweet

"At Milton Keynes food bank, John Marshall, the manager, said he had had no support, except from the public, to help deal with the potentially higher burden. “We thought the cavalry might be coming over the hill but there doesn’t seem to be one.”"

Foodbank usage is not going down, it is still increasing.

This completely unacceptable. We need to move towards a UK where no one needs a food bank’s help, not a country where charity provision is the only defence from utter destitution” - Emma Revie, Trussell Trust chief executive.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and CAPSLOCK THANKS if you decide to donate a few pounds to help us out!  <3
