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 work full time, have a wife and 3 wonderful children. Unfortunately I was hit with an unexpected car break down bill this month which has left me short on the rent. I needed to pay the car bill so i can continue to work, we've tried to borrow money from various other sources with no such luck. We're currently trying to sell anything which is not nailed down. A friend suggested a crowdfunding approach. If enough people were able to donate just £1 i would only need to find 800 new friends, so here I am nothing ventured nothing gained.
