I am passionate about this issue as I am a very caring person and see a lot of wrong in the world and would love to make a change in this. I know first hand that giving money to charity can be a daunting task because if somebody asks you on the street or knocks on your door you are nervous and scared and you usually do not trust the person and that the charity is even genuine! And also that you are not actually seeing where the money you are donating is actually going to and you in general do not feel like you have actually done anything to help! This is a major problem that I want to solve! I inted to set up one big organisation/ charity that has all genuine charities on this site...They will all be verified so the user will feel at ease to donate. But on top of this...once you click on the charity you will be able to see the actual person you are donating to and donate directly to the person. For instance there could be a man named Paul smith who is blind and needs £20,000 for a operation. The user will be able to donate money towards his fund and watch live to see the fund build up and eventually hopefully complete the funding. I think this would be a great idea because you can give specifically to a cause and if you think some people really deserve the donations more than others and you want to donate the full 100% (instead of a charity that takes a percentage) and actually see the change you are making it will be a wonderful experience and very moving. I think that in short that it would build trust in donating and make it a better, more moving experience and make a massive impact on those people who think the world has forgotten about them. I am a very determined man and am willing to work all hours to make this work as it would change so many lives for the better! I have always had great leadership skills and think I could make this dream a reality.
