Weʼre raising £5,000 to I'm aiming to set up a website where we can encourage and help each other. Eliminating feelings of isolation encouraging social inclusion.
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'm feeling overwhelmed and completely stretched out trying to solve problems. The feelings of helplessness is rapidly increasing in society today. I started a non profit organisation which I abandoned because I couldn't just serve one issue when there are so many. I wouldn't want to be turned away, so how could I do that to someone else? Even though I couldn't get funding I continue to help, because I can.
This website is aiming to give people a voice, restore faith in humanity by helping us to help each other through whatever the need. It also makes others realise that they are not alone. Strangers will help. There is always someone in your situation and maybe they can help you through it.
So many people don't know where to turn, express themselves and feel completely helpless. I don't have all the answers but someone somewhere might. Stop the isolation. The suicide rate is ridiculous.
Even though I am asking for money to build the site, logo and technical expertise. I am really asking for the things money can't buy like time, energy, conversation and togetherness.
Many can move mountains.

About the fundraiser
I'm a woman who was a victim and has learnt to be a survivor. A woman who was once voiceless - now I'm the voice of so many. Without a voice you are a victim. I don't want anyone to go through what I did. We are so quick to judge and never want to be judged - is that fair?
