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.

When children have meningitis the after affects can be life changing and wide ranging from loss of limbs to brain damage. My son had the illness at 5 months and the after effects have been devastating. I found that there is hardly any information or support groups in lots of small communities and the ones that are available have a lack of sensory equipment due to having no funds. All children with disabilities should matter, but it appears that if you can't see the disability then it is dismissed. There should be more information and awareness available in the small towns and communities. you cannot see all disabilities and not all disabilities require disability aids. I am raising money for all children with invisible disabilities such as acquired brain injuries, autism etc and the money raised will be going to the nearest help ctr and meningitis charity to help raise awareness and understanding and to offer help and support to those affected In small towns.
