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 nonprofit.

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

Story

Mark is 15. He suffered a brain haemorrhage shortly after his premature birth resulting in him having Cerebral Palsy.

He underwent hip surgery in late 2017 and following a year of physio, he is now trying hard to get on his feet.

He is unlikely to walk unaided but with support he loves to stand and is trying to take some steps.

He has had several assessments with other walking aids but nothing has ever given him the confidence that this frame has.

Mark’s family are convinced with this walker, more physio and support from all that know him, that he will master taking steps giving him freedom to explore.

Any amount raised in addition to the target will be used for other equipment to help Mark’s daily life.

    (Rach) Both John and I would like to say a massive thank you to everybody. We are truly overwhelmed by the generosity of colleagues, family, friends and many folk we don’t know. I never thought that posting the video on Facebook of our boy enjoying something new would lead to this. Having this walker will make a huge difference to Mark's life. He’s trying hard to be on his feet after his surgery and this walker will enable us to support him and give him so much more freedom to explore his surroundings. Please accept our heartful thank you xx

    It's only a small support in monetary terms but I hope Mark and his family can take comfort from the thoughts and wishes from all those who would like the make life a better place.
