Weʼre raising £100 to help buy me a new laptop for my writing career
- Stroud, UK
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.
Hello, I'm Callum and I'm a 13 year old author living in Stroud, Gloucestershire.
I suffer from HV Syndrome, GAD, and frequent stress and panic attacks, I write, not only because I want to fulfil a dream but because it eases my problems.
In March, I released my debut epic fantasy novel, First Crown: Malice of Snow and made an agreement with Teenage Cancer Trust to donate 20% of every purchase of my book to their cause.
I'm halfway through my second book now however my laptop has stopped working due to years of use and even when it did work, it was only barely usable for writing.
I was hoping to have finished my book over this summer holiday but of course, with a complication such as this, I 'll just have to wait.
I started my kickstarter project in the hopes that you would support my aspirations of becoming an author by helping me get back on my feet and reviving one of my only ways of relaxing.
Every person that donates will also receive my second book when it comes out, completely free, as well as a rare, unseen chapter originally cut from my first book.
Thanks for looking and I really hope you will help me reach my small target of £100, and you'll also be helping a charity.
