Weʼre raising £50,000 to Callum Wylie memorial fund To raise awareness and offer support to young adolescents with Aspergers in times of crisis.

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.
Callum, our beautiful 18 year old with Aspergers, took his own life as he couldn't find his place in the world. This young man was so talented in many ways, a musician, freestyle skier and mountain biker, he lived for the outdoors. Throughout his short life he struggled internally, eventually it became unbearable. He has left his family bereft with the small solace that he donated his organs, giving life to others.
As a family we are setting up a Foundation/Trust in Callum's name to raise awareness. The Foundation will give support, in times of crisis, to adolescents with Aspergers and high functioning autism, also importantly it will assist their families. This Foundation could help save a life like Callum's.
