Weʼre raising £2,500 to Invest in Burning Feathers

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 charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Siona has been struggling to get her business off the ground since her marriage was abruptly ended, and she had to start living life as a single parent. She desperately wants to be self-employed and self-suffficient, but setting up a business takes funds, and unfortunately her ex does not seem to have deemed it necessary to assist financially in providing an entirely new home his daughter, and as such Siona had to use all of her savings ensuring that they had a warm, safe, and comfortable home.

At present, Siona lives on state and council benefits - however, even these are not enough, and she gets more and more in debt as time passes. This is, in part, due to her incredible generosity in letting me live here for free - for those of you who don't know me, I had a nervous breakdown back in October, and had to quit work and leave my home as I couldn't pay rent. If it weren't for Siona, I have no doubt that I would have been sectioned, or much, much worse. I do as much as I can to help but being on benefits myself doesn't give much financial leeway.

All Siona wants is to run her business, to work from home making costumes and accessories and creating and making and doing all the things that she loves and make enough money to live in the process. I know she can do it - she's so creative, it blows my mind on a regular basis.

I have no doubt that there are LOADS of people out there that she's shown kindness to, maybe she gave you the socks off her feet because yours were wet (seriously, she came back from Nest this year with NO socks), given you her only umbrella because you were wet and miserable and she didn't mind the rain at all, bought you something because you were sad even when she couldn't afford it, went out of the way to help you even though you'd just met... This is the kind of person she is, and I think she really deserves a bit of kindness and support, and right now, the best way to give it is financially! So dig deep lovely humans, lets show Siona how much we appreciate her, eh?
