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 charity.

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


As many of you will know, our angel Charlotte Grace was somewhat impatient to meet us. At 32 weeks pregnant I found myself rushing to hospital unexpectedly late at night and Charlotte was born just a few hours later in the early hours of 10th February 2011. Too beautiful to stay, we shared precious time with her - giving her a lifetime of love in the short time we had. Because of the rush to get to hospital, and because Charlotte arrived early I found myself at hospital with no overnight bag, no toiletries, no small comforts to make me feel human.

In memory of Charlotte, and to celebrate her 8th birthday, I want to raise money to provide small comfort kits to mums and dads who find themselves in a similar situation. These kits will include essential items, which are not readily available, such as a toothbrush, shampoo, shower gel, deodorant etc and will be provided to Leeds Teaching Hospitals.

This may sound a minor thing but little things like this may just help new parents feel a little bit better when life takes them by surprise. And for some, like us, who may find themselves experiencing the worst moment of their lives, this may just provide a little comfort and a sense of normality when their lives have been turned upside down.

Having already identified where I can source these products, in volume to keep cost low, I know that every £1 raised will fund one of these kits.
