For those who would like to raise money for local causes but are unable to due to time or a lack of funds, Buengo is your answer.
Buengo is a fun new fundraising app that allows you to sell the things you no longer need while donating the proceeds to a range of excellent causes. This is all done in your local area.
Buengo are also planning a virtual fundraiser named Sell It For MCR that will launch in the city later this May.
Running from 21 – 28 May, the exciting event will encourage people living in Greater Manchester to post items for sale in the app. They will then donate the proceeds to their favourite local causes and charities.
There are a number of local Manchester causes involved this year, including:
– Manchester Cares
– Lord Mayor of Manchester’s Charity Appeal (We Love Manchester Charity)
– Healthy Me Healthy Communities
– Help Homeless Heroes
– Manacare Foundation
– Greater Manchester Youth Network
– Back on Track
– Plus many more
Manchester has such a sense of community pride and spirit that the whole city and the people that make it are so infectiously uplifting to be around. Co-founder Fela Hughes explains:
“The people and their passion for Manchester made it the perfect place to launch and we’re hoping that people will really get on board with the platform to raise lots of money for Manchester causes.”
“All of the causes we’ve spoken to have such a passion for their area and the community spirit can really be felt
across the city.
“We’ve created a platform for people to find out about the good things happening in their area and provide a way to donate without even having to dip into your pockets – we’re excited to Sell It For MCR!”
