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.
Many years ago, I was brought in as a transfer day signing at a club that was just starting up. The name of this club isn't important - it's changed more times than you can count over the years - it's the overriding feeling of hope that drew me to the team that matters. Plus I didn't really like the popular boys I'd been playing with, so there's that. At this club I found more than I ever dreamed I would. I was born again, playing an exciting brand of football next to players that I would die for. The fans, players and captain were all so welcoming and gladly gave me a try in my preferred position of Any. After a shakey adjustment period, we all got on board with the manager's philosophy and our Pro Club sprung through the divisions, all the way to Division 1. After years of hard work we were all working together in harmony.
But then, everything changed when the fire nation attacked.
I don't know where I'm going with that. Basically after a summer of spending far beyond my means and living more than a mere mortal should, I am without the money to purchase FIFA 19. But the faceless masses might have money to put towards stupid shit that I shouldn't buy.
If 50,000 of you give just one penny, I will reach my goal. They say that dreamers live with their heads in the clouds. Me? I wish to dance upon the sky.
Please fund my dancing shoes. Thank you.
