UPDATE 23 DECEMBER: We did it! All delivered, and I have updated the campaign image to show her getting the generous gifts you bought.

KEEP ON GIVING! Any surplus raised will be given to her as cash as she needs to pay for food and fuel in the coldest months, and government welfare is inadequate to cover the basics. I have extended the date from Xmas into January.

ORIGINAL CAMPAIGN MESSAGE: I would like to buy a high quality tablet computer with built-in mobile broadband plus airtime credit for a friend who has experienced homelessness and poverty and wants to tell her story using video blogs. The invisibility of the suffering that exists in the UK is a serious problem.

    Thanks for telling me about this, Martin, and for your time and generous efforts. I hope she can also find a way to generate income with her new tools.
