Weʼre raising £5,000 to Raising Money for Top Surgery
- London, United Kingdom
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.
I am raising money for top surgery as the NHS will not fund it. I have needed the surgery since I was a young teen, but my family haven't been able to support me and I have never been able to save up without it being a detriment to my own living standards.
The condition affects every aspect of my life and it is becoming increasingly unbearable in adulthood. It's the root cause of my depression and insomnia, and it's often underestimated how much physical wellbeing affects mental health. The condition limits my physical activity, impacts on my ability to sleep, has caused irreparable damage to my back, has caused me to give up sports, makes me feel immobile, cripplingly self-conscious, and often renders me bedridden and depressed - not really how I imagined living at 20 years old.
It is only now that I am an adult that the surgery seems possible, however the price of the surgery is making it seem impossible. I am hoping to raise the money as soon as possible, but I understand that it will take several months at the very least.
In order to raise money for my surgery I am doing several different things:
I am running a club night called Nice Mover at the lovely and historical LGBT+ venue vFd and any money that is collected on the door on this night will go towards my surgery.
In conjunction with the club night I am also selling t-shirts, hoodies, and bags. The money made from this will go directly towards funding my surgery.
I am also renting out my room on AirBnb and sleeping on the sofa in my living room whenever possible to raise as much money for the surgery.
Basically, my full time job is raising money for my surgery. I am doing anything and everything I can to raise money for this, however raising £5000 alone whilst being a full time student seems an impossible feat, that's why I am asking you for help, and any amount of donation really does go a long way.
How you can help:
- Purchase Clothing from http://nicemover.co.uk/shop.html
- Commission Event Planning from Nice Mover (Parties / Club Nights/ DJ / Etc. )
Thank you for your generosity! Literally anything helps.. Thanks for reading!
