What is crowdfunding?

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

Story

Like every 4 year old, Zacky deserves to have the opportunity to be in the right learning environment to thrive and develop in the best way possible.
Zacky was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition (KCNQ2), which requires very specialised support to meet all of his educational, therapeutic and care needs, such as specialist therapies and direct access to on site care facilities.

Zacky faces every day life with a number of complex conditions:
Visual impairment
Epilepsy
Learning disability
Generalised dystonia (muscle spasms)
He is unable to talk
He is unable to feed orally and so is tube fed
He is unable to walk

Unfortunately there is a lengthy, costly and complex process that we have to go through for Zacky to be assessed correctly. The money we raise will enable us to get independent reports from:
• Occupational therapist
• Physiotherapist
• Speech and language therapist
* Educational Psychologist
* Plus independent legal representation to present Zacky’s case

This will go towards helping us to make sure Zacky’s future is in the absolute best hands at such a critical time.

Friends and family have been amazing which we are eternally grateful for, offering support, giving up their time and raising money on behalf of Zacky’s fund.

If you would like to get involved in a fund raising event or challenge please get in touch so we can support in any way we can.

    We really didn't expect such a fantastic week of the crowdfunding after the success of the tea party. We have also received more cheque and cash donations, bringing the total raised to date to £9540. A massive "Thank you" to all who donated last week. What is also so amazing, is that a huge contribution has come from friends of friends or people who are unknown to us, but have been touched by "Zacky - Dare to Dream". They've wanted to help, so a massive "Thank you" for your support and kindness. We do appreciate it. Please like/share. X
