So I have been very lucky in life to have had the best mum and dad ever. All my life myself and my sister have never wanted for anything as they always made sure we had everything we needed and wanted.
Now I've realized if I could get 800,000 people to donate just £1 that would allow both my parents to buy the home they have rented for 20 years.
My mum and dad both came from families that really didn't have any money, they have done nothing but work hard and really graft their whole lives. They both started very young when it came to having children'. They had my sister at 16 and then I came along when they were 20.
As we live in London you can imagine the price of property is very high, we are council tennants and live in Wandsworth. It's heart breaking because in rent they have spent close to £400k which could at one point of bought the three bedroom house we rent. They just couldn't afford to save up a deposit and get a mortgage as so many things just got in the way and they always missed an opportunity.
Now I've personally never met anyone quite like my parents, the love and care they give not just to me and my sister, not just to the rest of my family but anyone who meets them is just overwhelming. They would do anything for you. It breaks my heart they never could buy a property and have spent so much money in rent.
I would so love to make their dreams come true and buy them the house that we have lived in for the last 20 years, every month the rent comes out which is £1,400, they've never had any help and never claimed any benefit, they just manage and I don't know how they do it.
Please spare what ever you can and share this group far and wide. They so deserve this and it couldn't happen to two nicer people.
Thank you so so much.
All my love
