    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    The TEA Room (www.thetea-room.com) is the first online international forum specifically for teenagers with epilepsy and allows them to share, chat and learn with other teenagers around the world.

    Developed by Scottish Epilepsy Initiative, this new free global social networking site connects 13-19 year olds from around the world who are suffering from or are in the process of being diagnosed with Epilepsy. Launched in January this year, the site already has users from around the world.

    One of the biggest problems facing people with epilepsy is the social stigma associated with seizures. Teenagers in particular can feel embarrassed and ‘shut out’ because they feel different to their peers; so The TEA Room is a wonderful way for them to engage with other young people who can relate to their situation and problems.
    The TEA Room provides instant access to an online community of friends who face similar challenges living with epilepsy, although discussion is not limited to health issues.

    I would very much encourage teenagers in your area to visit the site and join a growing international community.

    In many parts of the world, people with epilepsy and their families suffer from stigma and discrimination.
