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 have decided to open this justgiving page for a young lady that lives near me I've watched her on social media working so hard to provide for her children by herself working a job and doing other work to raise extra money when she's not at work. But life has handed her a rough card she recently lost her dad then suddenly needed to leave her privately rented home in short notice after worrying that they would end up in a B&B she managed to find another property and get together all the money she could which was £1400 a lot of money for a single mum she get the paperwork, signed for the house paid the money and moved in. Then one day as she was sitting in her new home A man knocked on the window and said 'what are you doing in my house' unbeknown to her she had been scammed out of all her money and was now homeless. They're currently living in one bedroom in a hostel with no real idea of how long they'll be there she had to quit her job and put in a new claim for universal credit which can take anywhere up to 5 weeks to process so currently she I living on child benefit of which she has to pay £20 a week to the hostel . Also, she's had to put all her furniture and the children's toys into storage costing her £130 a month. This I feel is completely unfair this person that has stolen from a single mother and left her homeless with her children is disgraceful! And I one would love to just show her that the human race can do better than this let's show her that we care about these hard working single parents and that the world hasn't gone to ruin! I will be giving away my own wax in bundles as a little incentive to give 5 winners in total but donations would be gratefully received. Let's see if we can get some of this girls money back so she can at least feed her children and pay for the storage unit. Please, any amount will help I am asking for a £1 a number you can have as many numbers as you want if you don't want a prize that's also fine a small donation would be gratefully received. I'm not giving the families name as she deserves her privacy but I know she will be completely overwhelmed with any help given.
