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 don't want this to be a sob story and I'll try to keep it short and sweet as possible. I realise some people don't have time to read It all, so in a nutshell I'm trying to help raise as much as I can to give someone I love, something she deserves. Please.
Most of you will know know us but for those of you that don't, I'm Craig and I'm the boyfriend of the beautiful (and sometimes pain in the bum) Natasha.
A little over a year ago Natasha and I met in a local shop, and sadly we were forced to hide our relationship from our loved ones because Natasha was raised in a religious family, and as I wasn't part of it, that meant we could never be together. (I have nothing against religion, this is just our personal experience and I do not advocate any hate or discrimination against religious beliefs)
We did our best, and never gave in or accepted the negative opinions of others, we kept each other's head above the water and we supported one another the best we knew how, whilst I attempted to study, trying my best to understand the life she came from.
Around 7 months in to our "secret" relationship people found out and the most gut wrenching thing happened, Natasha was asked to leave her home, her family and all her childhood friends. I've never seen someone cry so much, but she's doing well and I'm very proud of her!
5 months have now passed and Natasha has been staying at various houses, friends from work, and sharing a single room with me. I wish I could take away her pain but I can't, but I can and I WILL give her a new place to call home and I WILL help her build a new life, I'm just asking for a little help.
It will be years before we can afford a deposit for somewhere together. So I'm asking that If anyone, anywhere, is able to donate something to help us get there a little faster, we would be forever thankful. I know my target is ambitious but she's amazing and If she can do that and still smile everyday, then I can do this. If you can't afford to donate, your love and support are also much appreciated.
Thank you, Craig and Natasha xx
