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 have recently come across this little girls story after speaking to her mum Vicky and it has really touched my heart.
I would love to help towards Phoebes cause with the help of my friends and family, i am hoping to make Phoebes fury friend arrive a lot quicker.
Here is part of Phoebes story from her mum Vicky.
This is Phoebe, she is 4 years old and the absolute light of our life. We may be biased but she is the most adorable little girl, with the biggest smile and the most infectious laugh. There is another side to this little girls life though and that is Autism. Phoebe was diagnosed with Autism at the age of three and since then life has been a whirlwind of therapies and interventions, all designed to try and help her lead as normal life as possible, but they don't appear to be helping. Our gorgeous little girl is finding everyday life a struggle, things that come easily to you and I are a huge struggle to her. She's over sensitive to bright lights, sounds and smells. This makes simple things like a trip to the shops, doctors, etc really difficult and as such we try to avoid places that cause her anxiety to increase.
As a parent you just want what is best for your children and you will do anything to help them. That's why we've looked into getting an Autism Assistance Dog. We've seen the amazing work that Autism Assistance Dogs do.
After applying to a few different charities, I managed to track down an amazing charity in Scotland called 'Appaws for Autism' who are willing to take on our application. We have the opportunity to be paired with a puppy from their breeding program, but the training comes in at a cost of just short of £6000. That's why I set up this Campaign to try and raise the funds.
We want her to conquer the world in her own unique way, without having fear of it and bringing a furry friend along for the ride will hopefully make that possible and all the more special.
Please help if you can any donation will be one step closer
