    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    We want suddenly bereaved mothers to be remembered on a day that they would rather go away. We want to bring a smile through the tears and pain of suddenly becoming a 'motherless mother'. I care about the future of young people and the right to live a life past the after of '21'. I care about the families that suffer the loss of a loved one in such tragic circumstances, to suddenly be faced without your son or daughter is an unimaginable feeling that never changes.

    Fatal and non-fatal youth on youth violence has become a national epidemic and is affecting more and more families each day. Families are losing their, sometimes, only child to senseless acts of violence; leaving a mother without her child. If young people are not made aware of the devastation caused by youth violence, they become desensitised to the damage caused to families, friends, and society in general.

    Your generous donations will make a difference immediately. With Mother's Day on 15th March, flowers will be delivered to mothers soon after. For more information visit the blog - www.jagsfoundation.wordpress.com/mothering-sundays-forgotten-mothers/ - "The pain of a bereaved mother is hard to explain; questions and endless thoughts of her child she brought into this world now over-shadows her world and this remembrance day is one she now faces alone…"

    Funds raised will buy a beautiful bouquet of flowers, which cost £25 each, to be delivered to a mother so that she is never forgotten as a ‘special mum’. We have a Families Supporting Families Network of 65 families nationally and as our network of bereaved mothers continues to grow, we want to be able to remember all mothers on Mother's Day.

      A huge thank you for visiting this page. Losing my son to youth murder has made me determined not to allow this tragedy to be the norm for other families, and that we work in unison to raise the aspirations of the youth and ‘keep hope alive in young people’.
