    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    After spending years struggling with coming from a Broken home, having to fend for myself from a young age & never really feeling part of anything.

    A friend who I'd known from school invited me to an Aerial circus class.
    After the first lesson I didn't stop I went every week without fail. Then, twice a week! I just couldn't get enough. It was almost as if with every fall I gained unimaginable strength & picked myself up to fall all over again until I'd perfected it!

    Every week I would go to class with other people some were better than me some weren't, but it didn't matter because every time one of us got up to try our move the rest of us would show so much support, you would almost feel like you could take over the world!
    After leaving my class every week I felt stronger, I felt hopeful but most importantly I felt happy!

    Through my classes & support network, I became who I wanted to be. Happy, confident & finally in control of my own life. I have been a professional aerialist for 4 years now.

    Now I'd like to open a dance/ circus school. & help people the same way I was helped. By giving them a sense of achievement, a huge support network & helping them believe in themselves again.

    Without Aerial I don't know where I'd be today. So please help me, help others. Thankyou.
