We don’t do crowdfunding for funerals in this country. It would be a great way of helping people who can’t afford one. In the US there seems to be a much stronger tradition of appealing to the wider community.
Hence the website above, GoFundMe.
On it is the appeal pictured above by a British couple wanting to raise a headstone for their little boy, Daniel. They’re asking for £700 and they’ve got to £650. You might like to help them over the line.
Our GFG techie genius, who also comes up with our best ideas (he is often called the brains of the GFG), likes this so much that he wants to create his own charitable website dedicated to people living in the UK. We’re right behind him. Britain is, after all, one of the most charitable nations on Earth. What better cause?
