    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    After a great many set backs I've finally got around to planning my first solo show but alas it's going to cost money that I don't have. In order that I can continue to eat I would really appreciate your help. The art council have told me that if I can get funding this way ironically they are more likely to want to invest in me.

    I know there are much more worthwhile causes in this world than my art career, so I've decided that 10 per cent of any sales I make will go to Southhall Black Sisters to support survivors of domestic violence who have no recourse to public funds. This is to support women who have no other means to get into refuge, which should be a basic human right for every woman regardless of race.

    I am grateful for anything you are able to donate, no matter how small. For those of you who are able to give £30 or over your get a piece of my art work for free. You can keep this for when I'm famous!

      Hi guys and dolls, just wanted to say a massive thanku to those who have donated. I am grateful for your lovely comments and your donations. It means a lot to know u believe in my work. I managed so far to raise £130 which is great but I need atleast £170 more by Jan. I went to a talk about art council funding on Saturday and they advised I need to get 10% in match funding before I apply. As my waid contract technically ends in March I can't stress how much I need this money in order to make this thing real. Lv Carly xxx
