Donation Subscription
Thanks Ethan! Homeless Charity

When a Donation Subscription is purchased we donate $10 to the Thanks Ethan! homeless charity; the objectives and aims are to work to eradicate homelessness in Greater Manchester

Who is Ethan? – Why are we thanking him?

Ethan was born in Bolton, a town in Greater Manchester, United Kingdom in 1994 and experienced too many tragedies in his short life.

With the loss of his parents and older brother all before he was sixteen Ethan could be excused for not being positive or happy, but he was, most of the time, and being his friend or work colleague was an absolute pleasure – he openly expressed compassion for others who were less fortunate than himself – his amazing personality, infectious laugh and unique aura made time spent with him so memorable. He became involved in mypersonalcv in late 2013 and put a considerable amount of time and ideas into the projects but sadly passed away in June 2018 before their final launches.

In January 2019 Ethan’s friends and work colleagues thought about how they could thank Ethan for his input to the business and how the business, in remembrance of Ethan, could help rough sleepers and the homeless in Greater Manchester, who Ethan often bought food and hot drinks for, and on several occasions gave away hats, clothes and rucksacks to those who were more in need than he was.

Ethan was always thanking people for helping him get through his life struggles, and Fiveola wishes to thank Ethan for his contribution to the business, so a positive, reflective name was decided upon for a charity which will act upon Ethan’s concerns for the homeless – the Thanks Ethan! charity will strive to make a difference. Although Ethan never spent time rough sleeping, there were times in his life that he sofa-surfed and was faced with eviction and displacement from the family home. The most prominent fear that Ethan always discussed was the one of being homeless - on his way to meetings in Manchester he would stop and ask the homeless if they would like food and a drink - he didn’t do it to make himself feel better, he hoped it would make a small difference to someone's day, now in his name we aim to make a big change to lots of people's lives and futures.

Thanks Ethan! has been in correspondence with the office of the Mayor of Manchester, Andy Burnham and look forward to working with him and his team to make a real noticeable, positive and constructive change in what he has recently (May 2019) declared as a homeless emergency in Greater Manchester – we agree with his closing statement in the keynote speech to the Fabian Society – "We will end rough sleeping in Greater Manchester, whatever it takes"

The volunteers and trustees of the Thanks Ethan! charity are steadfastly against taking any funds from the charity for salaries and expenses, meaning every donation made from the purchase of a Donation Subscription will be distributed in full to the homeless on the streets and in the hostels of Greater Manchester.

Expenses that Thanks Ethan! may incur will be paid for by Limited. There is a Commercial Participation Agreement in place between Limited and the Thanks Ethan! Charity which outlines how the funds received from a Donation Subscription purchase will be distributed via the charity directly to individuals in need and other Greater Manchester homeless charities whose objectives are also to eradicate homelessness in the defined area.

Thanks Ethan! (Ethan’s Angels) is a registered charity and it has been entered onto the Register of Charities with the Registered Charity Number 1185129 on the 2nd September 2019

May sweet memories of friends from the past always come to you, when you look for them

And your inspiration, long may it last, may it come to you time and time again

Ethan Thomas Brennan, 8 January 1994 – 27 June 2018
