What is crowdfunding?

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.


My dad, Bev Shaw, passed away on July 29th, 2018. She died in her home suddenly of unknown causes, with me at her side. She had COPD and many other health difficulties. These mainly involved her lungs, liver and GI system.

I loved Bev more than I can express. I am not the only one. She touched many lives all over the world. Some of us live to fulfill a specific purpose: Bev's was to bravely be her true self (a beautiful woman), and to be there for those she met along the way. Her purpose was to find love and happiness, and to share it with everyone.

Bev did not die in a calm and dignified manner, even though she deserved nothing but tranquillity.

Now, it is my duty to ensure she can finally be at peace. I am fighting to be strong: Bev trusts me to be resilient and responsible. It's an honour to fill those shoes and I will make her proud.

Bev has no will or assets. She will receive an extremely basic funeral unless we can raise funds for the send-off she deserves.

All donations raised will cover:

- Bev's funeral and wake.
- A gathering afterwards to celebrate her life and everything that made Bev...Well, Bev! She would have wanted us to rejoice her life and ours, not ruminate over her passing.
- Some funds will be used on expenses directly related to her passing, e.g, purchasing death certificate copies.
- Printing and laminating a photo montage in Bev's honour. Copies of this will be available.
- Funds and belongings will be donated to Trans charities. She was eager to support other trans women in her life.
- Finally, I would like to give back to charities that support those with lung disease, smoking cessation, alcohol/drug rehabilitation etc. as these are all relevant and super important.

Every donation - big or small - helps. Even if our target isn't reached, ALL support will be used towards the funeral and wake. If you can't donate, PLEASE SHARE! Sharing is caring, caring is love and Bev loved love. Thank you.

Lots of love,
Jaz - Bev's "Little" Girl ❤️
