What is crowdfunding?

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.



You will no doubt be reading this because you have heard of the tragic passing of Austin at just 2 years of age.

Those who knew Austin loved his infectious smile and endless fearless energy. A little boy who could make anyone’s heart smile. A loving son to Emma and Daniel, an amazing brother to Noah, full of life, joy, and love.

The family are keen to celebrate his life given the tragic circumstances. At such a sensitive time we wanted to work out a way of giving him the celebration he deserves; to let us all remember him and be together. We would like to invite everyone who knew and loved him making sure Emma and Daniel have their friends and family around them. To make this happen we are hoping for a donation however small from all that knew him so that we can book a fitting venue and share our grief, love and perhaps a few memories together.
