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.
Upsetting and maddening. On Saturday the 5th of May whilst returning from the atm machine I was targeted by two locals both male and female, where the male blocked me from turning the corner feet from my destination, the female from behind grabbing my ponytailed hair locking my head so that I'd no movement with my head and neck. Turning me now facing her, where a knuckle dustered fist was launched straight into my face then dragged out of site into the doorwell of a shop and repeatedly took calculated punch after punch around 30 to be precise. The whole ordeal lasting what felt a lifetime continued one punch to my face and head for just over 8 MINUTES
However after being robbed having handed over my monies to my relief grabbing my phone was an after thought for the offenders and where I'd time and space to run and let me tell you "I can run". How this happened is beyond me.
My horrifying crime has left me with now having to persue ongoing treatment for I've 4 missing teeth, one which is being treated today to remove from being stuck inside my gum, my nose almost a week later is still bleeding from one side and appears broken so further xrays required with damage internally. My right hand side of my face is not situated correctly and the swelling has to settle before more tests can be saught.
My criminal damages claim can take a number of years and I would be happy to return to those whom are willing to help me with raising funds for the costs for dental treatment.
I don't know what else I can say and this still feels slightly wrong asking for strangers to give to me, when I know there are so many others in far worse of a situation.. Am I being selfish and vein I ask myself whilst I sit here in absolute disbelief this has happened to me. I'd be overwhelmed with receiving funds but equally I'd be happy to just have my dental treatment. I'm sorry for asking I truly am.
Thank you and I'm sorry. 🙏
