Weʼre raising £200 to Help fund a man in much need of a day out, who has been working at home withering away with no funds to see the lads for a year and half.
- Croydon, UK
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.
Ben is in dire need of a social outing with people who he hasn't seen in a year and half due to his extremely hard working nature and want to help everyone he can. He currently is making a minimal income so is unable to escape his internal world even when he does have spare time. I feel like crowdfunding would be a great way to show him that he is not alone and can enjoy his downtime as much as anyone else.
Ben is a diamond fella and when he is around other people it is as if his presence has brightened their day. It is a rare sight when he's not making other people laugh.
Ben will receive all the funds raised to enjoy a day or night doing whatever he wants with his friends who he has been unable to see in a long time and I feel that this would hugely benefit his mental wellbeing and happiness! If you've ever felt lonely and isolated and needed an escape, please help fund this cause.
