Weʼre raising £1,000 to help fund a fun, luxury, self care and transformation weekend retreat for crohns & colitis sufferers.
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 am trying to raise funds to host a 2 night retreat in london for people suffering with IBD crohns disease or ulcerative colitis. I have suffered with crohns myself for 8 years and I know how debilitating and depressing it can be. From countless toilet trips per day, feacal incontinance, vomiting, bloating and wind, not to mention not being able to eat anything! We have it hard, but dispitite it all I have met some truley amazing wariors.
It is my passion to care, help and nuture people, I want to love and empower these individuals so that they can keep their spirits high, know their true worth and get the treatment that they really deserve. I want us to come together in small intimate groups to share our stories so that we dont feel so alone. I will be mentoring people individually and as a group.
There will be healthy eating, introduction to vegan meals, smoothies, yoga, meditation, nature walks and city tours. I hope this can help bring balance a clarity to our busy minds and overactive guts. I will go through a step by step guide of how to manage flare ups, how to calm anxiety and how to beat depression. This will be an open space where people can really be free to express themselves in all areas so that they can release any blockages thats getting in the way of them reaching their full potentential and flourishing.
Its a challange for people with IBD to hold down a full time job due to their illness, so I dont want to ask the paitents themselves to pay for this event & I dont believe that they should miss out if they can't afford it. Im currently unemployed so its difficult for me to fund this cause myself, thats why I am asking for your help.
This retreat could change the way some feel about life with a crohnic invisible illness. To say lifes tough would be an understatment. I just want to honor these individuals and make them feel as beautiful and worthy as they are! Thank you for any donations no matter how big or small!
