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.


I am submitting applications to professional organisations Charities, University departments for example to support me throughout my pursuit of completing a three/four-year PhD study programme. But i need your help. You might not be able to afford to fund my project but you might be able to help in other ways, like sharing it across as many media channels as possible to gain as much coverage as possible.

Primarily I am looking to raise financial support as access to literature, current journals and important reading material has a cost attached to it but also that to register with many Graduate research providers one must be associated with an academic entity in order to complete this type of research degree. This association will facilitate an official identity, one that projects professional determination which will help with planning interviews and approaching other organisations, many more doors will be open to me if I have the backing of a professional body or organisation rather than as an individual. I must consider other expenses like travel to and from locations and stationary, software and living expenses for the duration of the research project three-four years.

    I'm a Veteran, dyslexic, regularly medicated for depression hypothyroidism and high statins and occasional anxiety, so you can see I have a lot going for me. On the flip side of this I have a 2:1 Bachelor degree with honours and a Merited Masters & the passion to want to help.
