Hello everyone,

Thanks to our amazing network of hosts, in less than 2 years we (RoomForTea ) have helped over 500 young people find a place to stay. To date, all our users have come through word-of-mouth and we have not invested any money into marketing. Instead, we chose to invest into building an amazing web platform so that hosts and guests can connect with each other safely and easily.

Our goal now is to grow our community and reach thousands more people so we can help our guests find a room and get ahead in their careers and help our hosts make the extra cash they need.

We have to ask for your help. We are asking because we are getting more and more demand and need to source funds to add another full-time person on our team. We will use the funds to hire someone amazing to help us meet this increase in demand and continue to improve our customer experience at the same time. The funds we raise will cover their salary for 2 months at least starting from September, and any remaining funds will be used to throw a tea party with our community!

We are doing this for the lovely people who are using RoomForTea and want it to continue.

All we need is a bit of help with our cashflow, so we are doing a pre-sale of room bookings. What we are proposing in exchange for your kind donation is a RoomForTea booking voucher. Think of it as paying for a room in advance for yourself or as a gift for someone! 

Dates are to be decided depending on your preferences and room availability and at this stage we can be very flexible (as long as booking takes place within the next 12 months). We will contact each person individually to arrange where & when they want to stay. At the moment we can only offer rooms in London* (Offers 1 - 6) although we do have a very special treat in store for those who want to spend a bit more and visit Paris (Offer 7)!

Note that if you prefer to make an open donation not tied to a room booking and/or donate less than £20 that would be much appreciated still - every little helps!

Receiving your support would mean the world to us. We've invested so much into RoomForTea, and truly believe it has the potential to flourish. We just need your help in getting there :)

Even if you can only spare your last pound, we would be touched that you chose to spend it on us to help us realise our mission. If you've used RoomForTea before or are simply a fan, please feel free to share this campaign and comment below.

Milena, Alex and Joel
