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.

Story

I am 27 and suffer from Cerebral Palsy, I currently have to rely on my parents to aid me in getting out of bed. This is a uncomfortable experience, not only for me as a young man. My parents are also forced by their own limitations to help me via lifting me, which is dangerous to their health.

One of them already has COPD, and has just overcome a major cancer scare. It isn't right that the two people who have helped me all my life, should be left stuck in such a difficult situation.

Also, as a young man I want my independence. While mobility assistance has its price, independence is priceless.

With two university degrees, I aspire to get a job in media as a radio presenter and be part of, and contribute to the community I live in. But, I cannot do that if I cannot do something as simple as getting up and out of bed in a morning.

So, whether you donate to, or share this page, you're not only helping me get out of bed! you're helping two great people who have really helped me their whole lives.

Thankyou for reading this,

Chris
