Crowdfunding Campaign Announcement: Sponsume no longer trading

In November 2014 we launched a crowdfunding campaign through Sponsume.com to raise money to help stage a performance event in HMP Wandsworth to mark the end of our GROUNDation Poetry Project. As the campaign drew to a close in February of this year, we discovered through internet chatter that Sponsume no longer seemed to be trading. This was eventually verified by a posting on Facebook that read:

Unfortunately we no longer offer crowdfunding services. This feed will be dedicated to what’s new in the world of crowdfunding. If you’re looking for a platform for your project, please consider using www.kickstarter.com instead.

Other than this terse announcement Sponsume has made no other official communications with individual clients or indeed with donors. Initially, it was difficult to ascertain whether our campaign raised any money or not. Fortunately, we now believe that no money was taken from the accounts of donors who pledged their support. We urge any donor involved to check their bank statements and get in touch with us as a matter of urgency if this was not the case.

We apologise for the delay in relaying this message publically but we can assure all supporters that we have put new due diligence measures in place to protect the organisation and its stakeholders as much as is professionally possible.

Safe Ground would like to thank all our donors for their support and hope they will continue to invest in the vision of the organisation, its projects and events.
