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.
Some of you may know that mental health has a special place in my heart after a close family member got admitted to hospital. It was a very hard time and made me appreciate the work mental health workers do so I decided I wanted to give something back and at the same time gain knowledge myself into mental health. Mental Health Awareness week in Canada is coming up in September and I've been lucky enough to be allowed to do a voluntary placement with a mental health team over there which is a dream come true!
So I'm raising funds to get me there, flights and accommodation and if I'm lucky enough to have any left over it's all going to the mental health team. The hospital relies on donations and volunteers after government cut their funding despite the prevalence of mental health increasing.
Please help me to make a difference and to follow my dreams, any little donation would be appreciated more than I can possibly say in words!
