    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    I have Multiple Sclerosis which is not curable and just gets worse. I worked all my life until the M.S struck and worked even with the M.S until it became impossible.

    I'm scared that changes to my Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), coupled with moving from Disability Living Allowance (DLA) to a Personal Independence Payment (PIP) will mean I can no longer afford my mortgage repayments on my flat.

    I'm being forced into a position where I will have to sell my home, then rent it back.

    I'm not a "scrounger", I'm someone who is genuinely ill, and I'm so scared about what the Government are doing to people like me. I shouldn't have to be in a position where I have to sell the one asset I have in life, because of other people's mistakes. It's not my fault the economy crashed and the Government have to make cuts, but people like me are suffering, becoming even more ill, and being put under intolerable stress because of this, which is not fair.

    I hope not to have to sell my home - I worked hard to get it, and want to spend the rest of my life there, knowing that I'm safe, secure, and that it can't be taken away from me.

    I'm asking for anybody to donate £1 or whatever they can afford to get me out of this horrible situation, which will permit me to stay in my home and not have to sell it then rent it back at three times the rate my mortgage is. I hope to one day be well enough to try and do a few hours a week proof-reading, to top up my benefits, but at the moment, with the stress that this situation is causing me, I can't even imagine doing that.
