Each week, The FADER rounds up a small selection of calls for donations from causes furthering the goals of equality and social justice, with a focus on areas that are overlooked in modern media coverage. If you have any comments or suggestions for the roundup, contact us on Twitter or Instagram.

Weʼre raising £25,000 to provide every Primary School child identified with a toy and a gift box to unwrap on Christmas Day.

Blackpool Football Club is aiming to provide presents for children in Blackpool.


"The initial objective of the campaign aims to address a startling statistic that shows at least 700-800 children of Primary School age in the town will wake up on Christmas Day without a present to open.

With your backing, we are looking to raise money to provide every Primary School child identified with a toy and a gift box to unwrap on Christmas Day." — Fundraiser organizers

Smithy’s Family Fund

Raising money for Karina's family, who have recently been bereaved.

"Smithy was a loving partner to Karina and an amazing father to their two young boys. Anyone who knew Smithy knows he was always willing to help his friends and family, financially or otherwise. He needs our help now to make sure his family is taken care of." — Fundraiser organiser

Donate for Metehan's SMA 1 treatment: Zolgensma

Raising money for baby Metehan to receive life-saving gene therapy.

"We are starting a crowdfunding campaign for Metehan Fidan (born on 12th Nov 2019 at Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester, UK) who is the son of my friends Tuncay and Zeliha Fidan – both very kind and have always found ways to help their neighbours and the community they live in." — Fundraiser organiser

Help Nani move out of her house.

Nani is seeking funds to move out of her abusive home.


"Hey guys, it’s nani and I have been struggling a lot with toxicity in my family and my home in general. I have gone through a lot of abuse ( not necessarily by my parents but someone close ) , and my parents have always prioritized the abuser. I have had enough , and will be leaving my house. Hopefully I can make enough , I have a few dollars saved up , and I just need enough for rent , food , transportation and other essentials." — Nani

Christian's Cancer Fight

Raising money to support Christian's medical treatment during his fight against cancer.

"This will greatly help alleviate the financial burden resulting from us recently moving to a new city and not having much of a savings fund yet as well as the follow up appointments we will be needing in the next few months. If you cannot donate, please share to reach others that may, if you are religious please keep us in your prayers. If you've made it this far we appreciate your generosity and we hope to have the chance to pay it forward one day." — Fundraiser organiser
