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.
I am a student at King's College London. As you would expect rent and general living costs are very high due to being in the city. I currently work anywhere between 20 - 30 hours a week as my parents do not have the financial capability to provide for me. Whilst I enjoy work and it gives me a sense of purpose and achievement I do find myself struggling to keep up with the university workload on top of the hours I work. It would be immensely helpful if I could pay off my overdraft as it would alleviate a lot of the anxiety I have around my finances. I am in my overdraft through no particular fault of my own, my student loan does not nearly cover my rent hence why I am so deep in my overdraft. Although it is something I will work my way out of eventually I thought this was worth a shot however, I realise my cause is not nearly the most important. Any amount would be helpful but whether you donate or not thank you for having taken the time to read this.
