    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Tony Smith was just 41 days old when he was taken to hospital with multiple fractures in his legs and suffering an infection of septicaemia. He had to have both legs amputated and his biological parents have now been jailed for 10 years.

    He has been adopted by a loving and caring family who are doing everything they can to give him the best life possible. The Kent Messenger team is putting this page together to help them and thank them for what they are doing to help this young boy who was so cruelly treated.

    During Tony's parents' trial at Maidstone Crown Court Judge Philip Statman called his adopted parents "stars" and we couldn't have put it better ourselves.
