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.
I really didn't want to make this post at all, but I'm currently desperate as desperate can be. I'm struggling really badly financially wise with trying to pay off bills, debts and loans, and recently it's gotten to the point where I'll forever be paying off debts without getting rid of them. I've asked many friends and family members to help out but they're not able to. I've been selling as much of my possessions as possible to places such as Gumtree, CeX, eBay, you name it and we've still not been able to rid ourselves of the nearly £200 debt that my family is in between emergency hospital trips and purchases of essentials. My parents aren't able to work as one of them is disabled and the other is a carer and as the only person who has employment, doing extra hours and selling many of the little posessions I have left isn't enough to recover.
I'm not asking everyone to help out, you don't have to by any means, not everyone will be able to because I've no doubt others will be in a similar situation. Something as small as a pound will mean the world.
