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.
You don't know me and I don't know you but I have reached a desperate time in my life where I am reaching out to complete strangers and asking them for help.
I am a single unemployed mother who has managed to get by for the past three months (since I lost my job) with help from my father (who is also a single parent ironically). Though this situation has not been ideal, we have made it work since before I lost my job I was a stock up mom meaning I had enough food and toiletries for us. Things have turned worse for us as my father has now just lost his job as well.
As I am sure you know, times are tough but I am hoping to reach a few people that may have a bit to spare and are willing to help my family. We are in desperate need of a bakkie and thus money for the bakkie. Our target goal is R50 000,00 but any and all donations are appreciated, a simple R10,00 can go so far.
For anyone who knows anything about cars and their costs, you will know that R50 000,00 for a car is nothing and yes chances are it will break down on us very soon but until that day arrives it would be a vehicle we could use to get to job interviews.
I am trying to keep this as short as possible. A few may be asking ''well what have I been doing since I lost my job'', well in answer to your question, aside from looking for another job, I have been studying web development as well as web design, digital marketing and social media marketing. I am able to do all these courses as last year (while I had a job) I bought what is called a Premium Membership from the online school Shaw Academy, you can visit their site here https://live.shawacademy.com/
I have also converted my suburban property into a homestead. We have a vegetable garden (not producing yet) as well as rabbits for meat. We make our own soaps, toothpaste, shampoos, cleaning products etc.
If you would rather learn how to do this as well, rather than just donating money, please reply to this email and we can organise for you to come to my place so I can teach you.
All I am asking is for help, in whatever way you can provide, I personally am not a very social person, I enjoy being by myself but I am in a desperate situation and I am asking help from anyone who is gracious enough.
Thank you for taking the time to read my message.
