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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Danny and Kim, two of the most loving open and peaceful people to have ever graced the planet.

Their home had a open door and they created a space where everyone was welcome.

Problems could be shared and spoken about without judgement , any of your issues could be solved with with love and support.

Danny & Kim were two free spirits and set off together for a holiday in Portugal.

The exact details are yet to be known , but reports say Kim got into trouble whilst swimming in the sea, Danny spotted her by the rocks and went out to rescue her. It seems Danny made it to Kim , but they never made it back.

Body borders noticed the couple were in trouble and tried to help, and returned their bodies to shore, where cpr attempts were made, but with no avail.

A Portuguese military helicopter recovered the bodies.

The heroic actions of Danny are only to be expected , he adored Kim , as she adored him

This tragic event has shocked our whole community and leaves two young children grieving for parents.

We require help to cover the cost of funeral arrangements, we need help and support for the two children , we'd also like to raise money for a memorial bench in Danny & Kim's name, as place for all those they have helped to go and find peace.

Thanks for reading any donations are welcome regardless of size.

Thanks Again

The Danny & Kim Team 🙏

    ***Update*** Firstly , thank you to everyone for your kind words and donations , this story has touched many hearts , just as Danny & Kim did. The families are still waiting to complete the repatriation process, When this is complete we can start organising the couples funeral. Any donations and tributes are still welcome, as we are trying to cover funeral costs , a shrine , Christmas for the children and then a fund for the children’s future support. Thank you so much again, I truly can’t believe the kindness and love shown. ❤️🙏❤️
