    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.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!

    I’m Anna, I'm researching this deadly lung disease at the University of Exeter. There is no cure and my dream is to help find one. My Grandad died from pulmonary fibrosis when I was 13. My beautiful, brave Mum, who had nursed him for months also died of it when I was in my 30s.
