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.
Losing someone you love is without a doubt one the the most painful experiences you can go through. It isn’t talked about enough and there are limited resources for seeking help and support as a bereaved adult. We are therefore left to deal with the pain alone and continue with our daily lives.
As an artist I decided to create #brokenheARTproject as a way of bringing comfort to those in such an awful time in their life.
Memorial portraits are a beautiful way to capture the spirit and character of a lost loved one in a timeless way that can be treasured for years to come. However commissioning an original piece of art isn’t cheap and I think there are a lot of people out there who would love one but might struggle to afford it.
Every month I give away as many fine art portraits as I can to those who are grieving.
Up until now I’ve been funding this project myself, however, I’m also a full time carer to my partner who is unable to work with a brain tumour and my two young children who both have special needs. I work in my spare time from desk in my bedroom.
The #brokenheARTproject portraits I have done so far have been so gratefully received. I’ve had a lot of positive feedback and it’s something I feel really passionate about. I would absolutely love to continue my project but financially it may become an issue long term.
I’m asking for donations to fund the time and art materials it takes for me to do this project. I've set target of £1000. This would allow me to create portraits for up to 50 people!
Please donate what you can and follow my Facebook page www.fb.com/natashafarrfineart to keep updated. Help me continue to bring comfort to those in their darkest days.
