Weʼre raising £3,000 to help a friend buy her son a headstone and sort her life out
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 have a friend called Joan. Joan is a retired woman who has lost her way in life. 2 years ago she lost her son in a car accident, her and her family barely scrapped the money together for a basic funeral, buy still they struggled by. As a result of this incident, she lost her husband of 40 years, had to move into a small bedsit, just so she could just get by in life.
She has recently been on Facebook in a desperate attempt to raise some funds for her sons headstone and arrange a gathering for his memory.
Unfortunately she was scammed out of what little money she had.
This story breaks my heart and I am asking for help to help Joan and bring some closure for her.
