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.


I'll be running the Edinburgh half marathon in aid of a charity - set up by my old man - called Sadaya. Having suffered with PTSD himself as a veteran the charity was founded to combat mental health issues within the veteran community. Sadaya is a Scottish registered charity that runs various projects around the country.

the money raised will fund a retreat that aids veterans of the British forces that suffer with mental health issues such as PTSD & depression. On average an ex armed forces member commits suicide every 2 weeks. One of the problems veterans face is isolation. It leads to depression and a sense of worthlessness, leading to thoughts, attempts and finally the committing of suicide.

The full and working retreat takes people from isolation, gives them a sense of giving back, self worth, and grounding. Once grounded the group can then engage in meditation with a view to settling the mind. Once this achieved then self-compassion and forgiveness can be tackled.

Sadaya - 'peace & health for military & service personnel'
