Oh we do like to be beside the seaside.... Greater Change is fundraising alongside three local homelessness charities to organise a day trip to Bournemouth for 40 of our homeless friends. We want to give them the opportunity to make life-long friends and memories, and to have the chance to forget about their struggles. However, we cannot do it without your help. Please donate what you can to what will be an amazing opportunity for our friends in need: https://www.greaterchange.co.uk/beach-trip. . . . . . . . .

What a 24 hours it's been!! We can't quite believe the overwhelming amount of support we've received throughout the campaign, but especially this weekend. We've raised an amazing £4,667 in the last 48 hours, which means...we now have enough for a prototype of the app and a 2 month trial in Oxford! To all the people who have spread the word, shared, liked, tweeted and most importantly donated, this is all because of you, so thank you all so much. We can't wait to see what the last week of this crowdfund will bring, and the opportunities it could unlock for this project. But we don't want this journey to end here, because the more money we all raise, the more long-lasting and greater the change. Here's to our next milestone: £27,400, which will enable us to carry out a more comprehensive, second-stage trial to make sure that this project works sustainably in the long-term. Thank you all for making this happen! #peoplepower
As Christmas approaches, home comforts, a warm house, and lots of food are something we all take for granted. But not for a shocking number of people in the U.K. Please help us #makeagreaterchange having a home really shouldn't be a luxury. #helpthehomeless #techforgood #crowdfund
We're 23% funded!! Thanks to everyone for sharing and spreading the word but we still need your help to make this project a reality! If you've still got questions about the platform and want to know more, here's 49 seconds with the brains behind the project, the lovely Alex McCallion.

Thanks @bbcOxford for having us on the #DriveTime show! We were talking about how we have launched our #crowdfunding campaign supported by @UniofOxford, @AspireOxford, @OxfordSBS. It is aimed at helping empower the #homeless in an increasingly #cashless society. Check out the link in our bio for more info on the Greater Change crowdfund now live!
We did some filming in Oxford at the weekend for Greater Change, talking to its founder Alex McCallion about his vision for the platform. You'll be able to see all the interviews and more material when our crowdfunding campaign goes live soon. #makeagreaterchange ... #charity #homelessness #startup #cashlesseconomy #oxford #oxfordcity #crowdfundingcampaign
This is Justin, he's homeless and living in Oxford. We interviewed him recently about the Greater Change platform and how he thinks it will help him. He was really excited about the difference this platform could make to his life and those of the homeless community in Oxford. Interview coming soon. #makeagreaterchange ... #keepyourcoinsiwantchange #homelessness #oxfordcity #charity #startup #nonprofit
