    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.


    We are an Edinburgh amateur football club that plays in the Lothian and Edinburgh Amateur Football Association. The focus of the club is to create an environment where young men can speak openly about mental health whilst enjoying playing football with friends. They do not have to have a mental illness to join the team, however, they have to be willing to create an environment where they can allow their teammates or themselves to speak freely about mental health.

    The club has been inspired by a loss of a close friend who died from suffering from depression. Since mental health amongst men in the UK is a stigmatized subject and sports is a way for men to express their emotions, we want to use this tool to channel men’s feelings. With the club, we can begin to change the perception of mental health.

    Please help by donating money to our football club. The money raised will go towards helping the club continuing in achieving its objective by paying for the running costs of the football team. The support given will aid Mental Mechanics in future seasons. Additionally, a proportion of the money donated will be given back to a chosen mental health charity at the end of each season.
