Weʼre raising £8,000 to Make Mia's Christmas wish come true

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.


Mia is a fun loving 13 year old blind girl with a fantastic sense of humour who wants nothing more than to be able to live and learn like her friends unfortunately she cannot do this because of her sight Mia has had to endure operation after operation, test after test, which is no life for a young child, the hospital is now like a second home to her and will be for the rest of her life! Mia would love nothing more than to be able to find her own presents on Christmas morning or even find her own sweets in the shop but she can't so we are trying to raise funds to purchase some equipment that can help give her the life and freedom she deserves the equipment that can do this currently costs £8,000, this equipment would help enable Mia to live a normal life just like her friends and give her some much needed independence to enable her to live her life to the full potential and would bring back the huge smile to her beautiful little face please help any donation no matter how small is greatly appreciated. Thank you

    We trialled many items trying to find some technology that could work for Mia and most ended in failure which was devastating for Mia!! but this one didn't fail!! this is one of the items that worked perfectly for her!! this is Mia testing one of the items that can really help her to gain some independence and freedom just look at the smile on her face when she realised what this technology could do for her and that it actually worked it broke me to tears!! I want to make that smile permanent so she doesn't have to struggle anymore please help
