    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    We've all been shocked by Jo's recent diagnosis. Cancer is a f***er that effects everybody differently, there are no guarantees!

    As long as I have known Jo, she's always done anything in her power to help any of her friends. Her strength and sense of humour, honesty and loyalty are just some of the reasons we love her. Jo (Miss Rabbit) has always worked hard, and now in her time of need, we have the chance to do something for her.

    Since finding out she has this disease to kick, Jo had an idea of making memories for her family to treasure forever, whatever the outcome. The idea was to get them all to Florida Disney World, but a Disney Cruise is now looking like a more enjoyable and realistic option for Jo.

    Let's give an extra gift this Christmas and make this dream happen for The Powells. The 2 week trip for the family is likely to cost over £5,000, so let's aim high!

    I can't imagine being in Jo's place, scary is not the word. She's way too proud to ask for help on this mission, so I'm doing it on her behalf, shamelessly asking you to give anything you can.

    Big love x

      £4,366 towards your special holiday, Jo. A huge, huge thank you for every generous donation. I know money isn't easily come by for many, and so it's a big deal. Every donation was a considered one, and Jo and her family know this as they look forward to what will likely be their last ever family holiday. Precious memories will be made, and this couldn't have been done without you all. Love and light. Please share this and pass on the love and thanks... 💝
