Welcome to Pay it Forward Gift Vouchers
A voucher created to support the homeless and other people in need though independent businesses without giving them money.
* Vouchers are given free to the business.*
* Vouchers are sold to the customer who can either pass the voucher on themself or leave it with the business and I will arrange to get it passed.
* The voucher gets passed on to a person in need (either directly or via Jimmy's, Cyrenians, Wintercomfort or Romsey Mill Family Centre)*
* Vouchers are non transferable and can not be exchanged for money or alcohol*
Street Aid (part of Cambridge City Council) https://www.cambscf.org.uk/cambridge-street-aid.html
With financial backing from the team behind Street Aid, I was able to get the vouchers printed at no cost to the business as well as communicate a source of help to people in need by adding the details to the back about Street Aid.
about the project
I started Pay it Forward gift vouchers after seeing homeless people on the streets of Cambridge, not wanting to give them money or buy them sandwiches in case they are gluten intolerant, vegetarian or some other food intolerance. I approached the Black Cat Cafe on Mill Road and they were interested in the idea but how would I do it? Azad, the owner came up with the idea of a gift voucher. I liked that idea...
