£263raised of £300 target by 7 supporters

Weʼre raising £300 to support the Jarrad Foundation by doing a SkyDive.

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 charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

I have decided to take part in a group skydive on September 6th to raise money for the Jarred Foundation. This foundation helps cover the funeral costs of people who have committed suicide. The families will be grieving and suffering and to help take away some of their worries about covering the costs of the funeral will make a positive difference. This is a non-profit charity therefore all the money raised will be banked to go towards funeral costs or spent on merchandise and promotion to help raise awareness of the foundation to raise money. They are recognised on the Skydive GB website (https://www.skydivegb.com/charity/jarrad-foundation/).

Having suffered from mental health issues myself previously and knowing close people who have also suffered mental health issues this means a lot to me.

The minimum amount to raise is £300 which includes the cost of the skydive however I am paying for the skydive myself (£209) and now I need to raise a minimum of £91 to reach the goal set.

Thank you.

SKYDIVE FOR THE JARRAD FOUNDATION

“The Jarrad Foundation was set up in 2017 after losing my son to suicide. Jarrad was my first born son, taking his own life on 6 September 2015 at the tender age of 21.

As a family we were not covered financially. A just giving page was set up and word got out raising a staggering £4500. I was overwhelmed with the community. I felt I needed to do something to say thank you, and this is where the foundation was born.

I have done various things from walks, raffles, parties to raise cash. So far the Foundation has donated around £1000 to families going through what I went through. I set up a page on facebook and have also helped a few people who have had suicidal thoughts, (mostly grown men).

I do not make any profit from this all money raised gets banked or spent on merchandise and promotions .

I am not a trained counsellor, just a grieving mother who tries to help others .

The Foundation aims to pay for all events on the understanding each person doing the skydive raises £300 plus to cover costs and gain funding for an unfortunate growing way for our children to end their pain.”
