    Weʼve raised £415 to Create an annual event that takes people with special needs on a social outing in memory of Kazzie Smith.

    Funded on Sunday, 3rd September 2017

    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Let me tell you about a very special young lady called Kazzie. She was a wonderful young woman who befriended everyone she met. If you could put laughter, love and light into a physical form, it would be Kazzie. Kaz had something called Williams Syndrome which is a missing chromosome disorder but this did not affect her passion for life.
    Kaz passed away quite suddenly in February 2017 leaving behind a hole in peoples lives that can never be filled once more.
    She will never be forgotten.
    But our kaz was a social animal being out and about at various events and clubs almost on a nightly basis and we as a family have decided that this is something that should really continue in her name.

    So our aim to raise £2000 per year so we can arrange a social event that all of her friends and coworkers, who also have some form of special need, can be taken out to a show, day trip to the seaside or organise a ball in her honour. This will also provide some respite care for their carers.

    There will be many events coming along over time but to begin with I , Nicky Smith her eldest brother, am growing my hair for one year while we get it all up and running properly. And I do mean just growing it. It will not be trimmed, hacked or styled in anyway. At the time of writing I am six weeks in and quite frankly it is driving me nuts already. I thought maybe a couple of inches would grow in a year but as it turns out it will be a great deal longer than that!

    This is the first step in fund raising. There will be others getting involved over many different events so dig deep please folks.
    We will keep you all updated on whats happening along the way and please share this far and wide!

      OK then folks. Over the next week or so the page is up for a reset. This is because you can only have them for a certain period of time! I would like to say thank you once again to everyone who shares the page and to those special folks who have donated some of their hard earned money to an idiot who is growing his hair for a good cause :) WHen this page closes and the new one opens the total will match what is left to be raised. There are other things going on one fund raising wise as well. I will keep you updated!

      WEEK 22. I am actually starting to look like an aging hippy now. There was a stage last week where if I could off somehow found £2000 I would have chucked that into the pot and shaved the lot off myself, but thats not the game is it! Funnily enough that passed quite quickly and the flowing greying locks seemed to hit a new level of length touching my collar and tickling the tops of my ears. I am sure Kazzie would be giggling at me now or telling me that she thinks it is much better and that I should keep it! Share the page please folks!

      It's a bitter sweet update today at Week 21. Today would have been Kazzies 40th Birthday and I have spent the day trying to find the words that could somehow do her justice and to express just how much life is just less of a great place to be in without her but I just can't. So true to form I decided to just act like a tool like I would around her to make her laugh. No doubt she is in stitches somewhere about this stupid bloody picture that my daughter took of me yesterday whilst walking around Bakewell.I miss your laughter and your light
