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 Amanda and my husband's name is James. We have 3 little boys and a new baby on the way. We are in desperate need of help.
We have lived in the United Kingdom (Edinburgh, Scotland) for the past 10 years. But now we are forced to leave the country. I am a Swedish citizen and my husband is Australian.
For 2 years we have been applying to get my husbands visa extended. But even though we both had jobs, our applications kept getting declined. We have been in touch with lawyers on every occasion and spent all our savings in the process, but to no avail. We simply can't stay in this beautiful country that has been our home for so long.
A few weeks ago, all our payments stopped. Child tax, working tax and child benefit. My husband can't apply for a new job due to no right to work in the UK.
As we are expecting our 4th child, this should be a happy time for us. But it's been the opposite. We are full of worry for our children and we can no longer afford bills and we are struggling to pay rent. We have no way of saving money to leave the country and move to Australia to start a new, better life for our children.
This is now our last option. I ask you with all my heart to please help us move to Australia. I would be forever grateful for any amount you can afford to donate.
Amanda and James
