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.

More than 40% of all domestic abuse case victims are male.
These are men that have grown in a generation that currently refuse or struggle to understand how a man can be abused and they have almost no voice.
In February 2012 there were 70 organisations WORLDWIDE that offer services to male victims, as of February 2017 there are 170 - Men everywhere are not only beginning to speak up, they want to be heard.
Thats why Im looking to raise awareness for the issue of domestic abuse, specifically for cases of male victims who find it hard or almost incomprehensible to simply admit thier situation or experience.
No one should have to suffer in silence.
In August of 2018 I will be looking to jump from a plane, some 15,000 feet high, in an effort to raise both awareness and funding for one of the least supported charity causes worldwide.
Specifically I will be donating to the ManKind Initiativewho specialise in assisting male victims of abuse.
I would ask anyone who reads this, whether touched by such an issue personally or aware of someone who has been, to give what they can.
Absolutely 100% of sponsor donations will be passed to the charity and my jump will be funded seperately by myself.
Any and all help will be appreciated, even as simple as a share of my posts to raise awareness.
