By Jonathan DaleyPosted September 19, 2018 04:07:13A homeless charity in New Zealand is hoping the internet can help it raise $2.5 million in donations.
The charity, which is in a difficult financial situation, has been asking for help from the internet.
The organization has set up a website to solicit donations to help it provide services to its homeless and low income clients.
On the website, the charity’s chief executive, Bradley Rennie, said the money would help cover the costs of running its business, and to help fund the services it provides to the community.
He said that after the site went live on Monday, more than $900,000 had been raised by the donations.
“We have about 200 people at this moment in time who are homeless,” he said.
“They have been using the website to get their donations through.”
The website has been a success, with the donations starting at just $5 a month.
“The website itself has been very helpful to us in raising a lot of money to help us pay for the people that we have to care for, and that’s what really keeps us going,” he added.
Rennie said that as of Tuesday, it had raised $2,722,000 in donations, bringing its total fundraising to $3,054,000.
“I don’t know how long it will be until we are in the red, but we’ve got a pretty solid bank account and we’re not going to be in the dark,” he told Newshub.
The money will be put towards the salaries of the workers that are employed to keep the organization afloat.
The website also provides information on where to donate, and how to use PayPal.
It can also be found on the fundraising site for the Salvation Army, which raised $1.6 million in January 2018.
