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.
Wherever you are, STOP! Take a second to look around you. Now carry on reading, you can almost guarantee that there will be someone you know who has gone through or is going through hardship or difficult time, it could even be yourself. Whether that situation is happening right now or it has past weeks, months or years ago no matter what it is from a direct issue with mental health, issues regarding body image or eating disorders, an affect on your psychical health, a illness or a disability, struggles with bullying or mental and psychical abuse or the loss of a loved one even a break up, finding becoming a new parent hard or feeling like you're struggling to give your child/ren what they need, whether you are struggling or have struggled with your journey as part of the LGBTQ community, or a situation that caused you to lose or feel like you have lost the people that you believed would always be there, this could be anything! You can almost always guarantee that everyone will know someone who has experienced at least one difficult time and in some unfortunate cases there will be people who have faced more than one. These times have different effects on different people, some people don't seem to be effected at all by certain circumstances and others manage to move past these on their own and their strength is to be admired but for many people experiencing any example of these life changing situations they don't feel like they can find strength to carry on or move forward. Some people see these issues as smaller and state that there will always be bigger issues or a 'bigger picture' but what happens if you can't see that picture, these people lose hope and that light they once saw turns to darkness and dreams they once had turn to grey, there is a life ahead but they don't know how to escape this mindset. Did you see anyone when you took that second to look around who could be effected by any of these? Do they effect you? At some point these will effect everyone whether it is you, your parents, grandparents, your children, close friends, neighbour, work colleague - the list could go on. Why should people give up their life or goals and aspirations to these experiences?
That life that was before may not remain due to unfortunate situations however the people are still there and their aspirations may remain. All it may take to help may be someone to talk to or some support for them to encourage their journey to reach their goals.
This could be affecting anyone! A girl with an eating disorder who has lost all her self confidence but dreams of being an actress your donations could help us to help her and offer her the support to achieve her dreams by aiding us to set up experiences where she can get involved in acting projects and support her on her journey or the single father struggling with a disability who wants to open a sports club to show his children that life doesn't stop there but he doesn't feel like there is any hope because of his differences he doesn't know where to start or contact we could support him to set this up by and anything can be possible with the dream and with your help you can make the difference and help these people some of which you may know to regain their happiness on the search for there smiles.
This campaign is as much about raising awareness as raising money. The awareness on behalf of all the people who go through a difficult time and struggle to find their strength again and see the light at the end of the dark times whatever experience they might be going through and allow be supported to achieve these aspirations.
A small donation as little as 50 pence could aid us to support these people and you're ever growing support to us will encourage them showing that people believe that they can get through this after all it could apply to your family, close friends, work colleges, your children or yourself at anytime.
