Weʼre raising £1,000 to Support Carlton and family during a time of unemployment
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.
Carlton R Williams contacted a private Mens Talk Community group on Facebook expressing his challenges.
Below is his message unedited from the private Facebook group.
So I just need some positive vibes please. Don't even know where to begin. Can be deleted if it is not allowed. Literally have no one to turn to. My daughter of 5 started school this year, on that day I found out I am not working anymore boss just forwarded a message saying we done. My family is depending on me, last year when my daughter 1 year got sick my wife had to leave her job to take care of her full time.Now she's volunteering at an Npo working with people living with disabilities. To be honest I feel emotionally ill, with my hands on my head. Been sending my Cv's out everyday. We finished all of our savings when my daughter got sick and now its school, food, electricity, place. Feel like killing myself. Call me weak thats okay. Life is a mess, I am suppose to take care of my little girls. Is it okay to feel suicidal as in really, upset, sad and disappointed.
Whilst donating money to Carlton and his family will not resolve his long term issue, I believe raising money will relieve the pressure on the short term problems. Carlton is currently being supported by a Facebook group of 4,000 men and now speaking to his family about issues. I am confident Carlton will find a job and get back to his feet.
Anything you can provide even if its £5 will go along way in support Carlton and his family during this short term financial challenges.

Thanks for getting this started. I donate as I try to follow the principle found in Mosiah 4 v 21. I do not ask any man to do the same; but I do invite men to look that up and see if it resonates.
