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.
My name is Anna and I'm a photographer living in London, originally from Norway. I've been living in London for 2 years, and travelled here inspired to develop creatively, not realising how strongly living here was affecting my mental health. I've struggled with severe anxiety and severe depression for most of my life. Being a creative in London tears hard on your earning and for me this has had a strong effect on my depression, where in the beginning of last year I went pretty far down, almost not being able to pull myself back up. The reason why I've started this crowd funding is that now when moving house I've had an unexpected first rent come up, that I thought would happen in the end of this month. I panicked and didn't know what to do at first, and then somehow managed to calm myself down and think of ways out. As I had to pay this I now can not afford the other rent I also have to pay this month, as rent for other place is paid in the end of the month, not beginning like the new place. I have manifested to somehow collect £425 which is the price of the first rent, and then came up with this idea, which also scares me a lot. I thought if I reach out to enough people and they could transfer only £1 each, maybe that would help me massively. So I have decided to try, and will be happy with any help I get, if I reach my goal or not. Thanks to anyone who can help me or even just send me good thoughts, I appreciate it with all my heart.
