Weʼre raising £2,000 to To help Dawn to meet her biological family, in Canada.
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.
We are hoping to raise funds for our special friend Dawn to visit her biological family in Canada. Dawn is 70 this year and she spent 60 years searching for her biological mother and father. In 2012, we discovered that Dawn's mother had passed away 6 months previously ...but also that she has 2 sisters and a brother living in Canada. Due to difficult circumstances, Dawn has never been able to fly to Canada to meet her siblings and maybe, just maybe you could help us to help Dawn have the best 70th gift ever. Between us, we are starting Dawn's campaign with £100. She needs £2000 for the flight and accommodation whilst in Canada and to cover her unearned income for 10 days. Any more money raised will go to her chosen charity.
Dawn is special for so many reasons but notably because she works as a Counsellor, frequently with sexual abuse survivors. She donated over 1000 hours over 7 years to the charity RASASC (Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre). Dawn is one of the most selfless people we know; kind, caring, considerate and unassuming. She so deserves the opportunity of meeting her only surviving, biological family and to finally make peace with herself. Can we please therefore ask, if you or anyone you know, would like to kindly support Dawn in enabling her to visit Canada and meet her family, then please donate here. We look forward to sharing the photographs of her once in a lifetime, dream. Thank you so much.
Val and Amanda
