Weʼre raising £20,000 to help fund equipment for a new Mental Health charity called MOOHH.
- Glasgow, UK
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'm starting a new charity to help get people with Mental Health problems outdoors, to have some fun and to see a different side of life from the norm and hopefully it plants a seed to help them grow and live happier lives.
For over 20 years I've enjoyed watersports around Scotland, I've taken many people out from age 5 to age 75 and with every person it's had a lasting effect, either those people continuing to enjoy it with their friends and family or they have happy good memories that will last forever
I currently have 2 jetskis (not brand new) and I just sold my little speedboat with hopes to buy a bigger one for next year, I've paid for everything out of my own pocket and I'm not rich by any means.
I'm going anyway because it's my hobby and I would love to bring people out on a 1 to 1 basis to start and then possibly in small groups where we can park on an island on loch lomond and have a barbecue while having watersports throughout the day.
I plan to invite people out who need some help, there is no set criteria or age limits, even if you can't swim you will love it because you don't need to go in the water, you can still come and enjoy the fresh air, nice conversation and beautiful scenery.
Volunteers, Carers, Parents, Friends, Family are all effected by mental health even if it's only 1 family member who has symptoms and sometimes it's hard to see past your current situation because it's like ground hog day!
I want people to come with me and forget all about it and connect with theirselves and the world again and have a chat to some good people, believe me it can change your life for the better !
And when they go back to their current situation they can hopefully think more clearly with a positive outlook and take steps to make it better for themselves and in turn everyone else around them
Anything you can do to help with this would be very much appreciated and it would go a very long way towards providing services to anyone who is needing our help
