Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I don't even know how I'm writing this and I dont even know if its the right thing to do. All I know is I have to try and do something.
On Monday the 13th August our beautiful baby niece fleur, aged exactly 13 weeks, took her last breath. Suddenly and completely unexpectedly, just like that she was gone. Taken from us all.
My sister Emily and Ashley are, as you can only try and imagine, completely besides themselves. They will never ever be the same again. They were the most doting, loving parents. They had wanted her for so long to complete their family unit.
Amongst trying to deal with this and come to terms with their new, unfair reality. They have the worry no parents should ever ever have to endure. Burying their baby girl.
With Ashley being self employed and Emily on maternity, money is of course tight and about to stop.
The last thing they need to be worrying about is how they will afford to bury their baby girl, how they will afford to keep the house running and food on the table for their other children Laila and Rhys.
So I have decided (and I think Paul is joining me) to run 13 miles every single week for 13 weeks straight. This will represent the day our fleurbee took her first breath on the 13th May and they day she took her last breath on the 13th of August. She was here with us for exactly 13 weeks.
I know nothing will ever help take away the pain or help them deal with what's happened. I'm just trying to think of ways to help make the process just even a little bit easier for them to manage.
So im asking for my family and friends help, if you can and want to donate, sponsor, chip in. Anything. I will and I know they will be forever grateful.
I do know its a lot to ask so please only if you can.
Sophie & Callum
Just 13 weeks.
