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.


Dan Aston has always been a giver, ask his ex partners. Today, he turns to you, the public, his friends, his family and those in his peripheral for help. He is trying to make the best of his life, sacrificing work, time with his family and friends and putting up with Southerners all damn day just to further his prospects of creating a better life. Times are hard for him and with Christmas looming ever closer, he does not see any way out of the financial vacuum he has been forced to live in and with University deadlines fast approaching, he is unable to work more hours to combat this hardship. The light at the end of this tunnel, the joy at the end of the semester was supposed to be travelling home to his loved ones, a perilous journey in a vehicle that may simply collapse at anytime however that seems to not be the case. He has hit rock bottom, he is living on the breadline, forced to eat plain rice and frozen veg each day and the prospect of getting home to his family for the most magical time of year is looking more and more bleak with every passing direct debit and bill.

For those who know him, the Brightstar Christmas Party is a special time of year to him. Music, dancing and fun times being had by all-he holds it so dearly. Drunken tomfoolery, public humiliation and most of all....most of all....women in short dresses. He begs you, please enable him to travel from the South East to the Northwest. Make his dream of a magical Christmas come true. Your donations will see that he can put fuel in his car. Your kindness will see him clear the M6 Toll road and then let him pay for a day pass at the gym to get a pump on before he hands further money to the taxi driver. Your charity will ensure that he does not go thirsty, that he holds a tasty, ice cold beverage in his hands all night and your love and generosity will allow him to once more create tales that will cement is place in the Lore of Brightstar.

Christmas is the time for family, love and laughter. Please, make sure he get's back to his.

Peace and Love
