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.
6 years ago my daughter was born.
Normal pregnancy, normal delivery and a healthy weight. A few months later it came apparent that her eyes where still trying to focus. A health carer of my partner suggested we take her to the doctors to find out what was the matter.
Long story short we found out she had a rare condition called a congenital nystagmus that make involuntary eye movements continously with out stopping. It also affects their long sighted vision and depth perception causing her to be clumsy and also slower to learn certain tasks.
This affects 1 in a 1000 people.
She is 6 years old and we have had our fair share of obstacles and set backs.
Buy she is doing awesome. She is really trying to get into extra curricular activities like gymnastics and dancing.
Unfortunately the places that I have tried to place my daughter are too full and she has been on a waiting list for months. And also she needs extra time to understand things as her visual learning is impaired.
I want to propose a new business were we open gymnastics classes that specialise in disabled children that focus solely on their needs to fulfil their development and satisfaction and feel part of a team and community that have the same goals in mind.
I want to be able to send this business UK wide to allow all cities to use the workshop and hopefully to open it up as a franchise and give it the recognition is deserves.
Please give generously. I promise to make this a success no matter how much we raise.
