Yes, I know what you are thinking, isn’t WWR a charity already? Well we are, but because we have been rather small until now, we have only been registered with HMRC as a charity for tax purposes. Only charities of a certain size (i.e. level of income) can apply to become a fully fledged charity with the Charity Commission and this is what we are now.
Hooray! The process has been quite long and many signatures and documents have been required but we are through it and can now write:
Sellers on Ebay can now choose to support Women Without Roofs through their sales. Ebay gives the option for 10 to 100% of an item’s final sale price to be donated to charity and now WWR is among those charities that can benefit.
This is great news as all money raised by WWR goes to Nepal where even the smallest amounts go a long way; for instance just £10 can pay a woman’s rent for a month giving her a home.
The trustees of WWR are meeting this week in Devon, England to discuss tons of issues related to the running of the charity and how to take it forward. If there is anything you would like them to discuss or if you have any comment about WWR, please let us know either by leaving a comment here or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The story behind Anna’s part in setting up the charity Women Without Roofs can be found on a website called www.onelifesofar.org.uk, please take a look at it.
Her story includes miscarriages, a move to Nepal and her attempts to understand suffering, we hope it is of interest. If you can find time to leave a comment on it, either on the OneLifeSoFar website or here, that would be very much appreciated.
