    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 run a small, non profit enterprise, My Voices Helping Hands, where we provide a large varied product base to empower and enable communication. Everything we make is totally bespoke! We work really hard with you to create materials that are suitable and works for each individual we are commissioned to work with. We make communication aids, visual aids, timetables, schedules, social stories, weekly planners, PECS, PECS books, reward systems, picture cards, communication packs, bespoke communication packs and much, much more. All of what we do is done using Communicate in Print.

    I also use Communicate in Print to make accessible material for my Makaton Choir and also for my church and work place.

    However, since my laptop has been up dated my communicate in print 2, no longer works and I am really stuck as I am very reliant on the use of the programme to adapt things for my work, choir and enterprise.

    I am massively passionate about communication and making communication accessible. Without Communicate in Print I am very stuck and would therefore like to ask for your help and support to help me raise the money that is needed to buy the updated software so that I can carry on my work.

    I know what it is Christmas time but currently I have got 10 orders waiting and much more that require the use of Communicate in Print so, please, if you have just a few pounds that you could spare to help, I would be so very, very grateful.

    Thank you in advance for you support and generosity! I can't begin to tell you how much it means.
