What is crowdfunding?

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

Story

Recent studies show that 3 in 4 workers experience mental illness in their lives, and half of them are too embarrassed to admit it

Around 450 million people are currently known to be suffering, placing mental health as the leading cause of sickness worldwide

Music is scientifically proven to help reduce stress, which is why we are creating a new mental wellbeing charity 'Music for Mental Wealth'

Our aim is to lift the stigma around mental health by offering a portal for communicating positive messages from inspirational people, personal songs by famous and emerging musicians (some songs will be heard for the first time), guided meditations and music specifically designed for de-stressing

Music for Mental Wealth (MMW) will offer music from a variety of genres with inspirational guest speakers and DJs

It's so important to relax, recharge and centre ourselves; which is why MMW will also have guided meditations available to help you de-stress and unwind

Tune in and chill out from home on your own or with friends/family - however and wherever you want!

We are also working with a Professor from Kings on a frequency we have discovered that takes the listener into a meditative state - without having to meditate.

MMW headlined the Huffington Post's 'Zen Den' at Bestival and received 100% positive feedback on our music

We will have Wellbeing Centres, regular showcases for musical talent, fundraising galas and more! We have BIG plans... but we need funding

We're raising £10,000 to launch our radio station and register as a charity that funds vital research and development into the benefits of music on anxiety, Alzheimer's and Autism

"Music has power - especially for individuals with Alzheimer’s" (Alzheimer's Foundation of America)

MMW will benefit millions of people - and we can't wait to share it with you!!

Please give whatever you can so we can make this vision a reality

Thank you,

Team MMW
