Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Late last year, a close friend was destroyed with the news of his mums death, they were very close, but due to his own personal circumstances, a long term partner, 2 young daughters, and usual financial commitments, he was forced to carry on working and never grieved.
Fast forward to late march, and the destroying news of a suicide in the family. This family member was a huge integral part of the family, a shoulder, a guide, and someone he believed was always going to be there.
I want to buy him some time, some time to spend with his little girls, his girlfriend, things that he so desperately needs but can't financially take any substantial time away from work. I want him to not have the added pressure right now and to be able to have a few weeks off work. When you can see a friend struggling and know they are trying to hold everything together, for everybody else, but underneath are absolutely breaking, i cant see that anymore and sadly i can't help as much as he needs right now. I know it's a clicheè quote, but really every little will help him. The total i am aiming to raise gives him around a month at my estimations to breath, spend with his family and actually have a little time to grieve.
