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.
Hi my name is Brad and i never ever thought in a million years i would ever start a crowd funding page i always saw it as begging and im a proud person but i have no choice. My son jackson who is 5 has severe autism he is non verbal and its a huge battle to keep him safe he self harms and will attack himself and others around him using his teeth is his favourite.
Over the past few months he has become a danger to him self in his specalist bed which is like a huge cot its wooden and hes started banging his head so ive looked into buying him a safespace bed but to my amazement its about £8000 and there is no way on earth i can get one for him.
So this is where ive ended up asking for you guys utter strangers to help me well help my little boy all i want is to know hes safe and there is somewhere he can go where i know he cant hurt himself or anyone else.
Any help would mean the world to me and jackson
Thanks for taking the time to ready my story
