    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    Being a parent is hard! For Mums or Dads who struggle with Postnatal Depression (or associated mental health issue) that adds extra pressure and stress. I know, I've been there!

    Through my website www.haveyouseenthatgirl.com I have been reaching out to other parents and helping to provide community and peer support.
    It is so important to know that we are not alone and that there is help, hope and recovery is possible.

    Due to speaking out, I now have lots of invites to share my story and to help encourage others, who are in a difficult place. It's a real privilege to be able to do this.

    I'd love to be able to leave a "Bag of Hope", with anyone who hears my story - so that when they leave they take something with them to encourage them on the difficult days.

    This will include -
    Candle - to remind us of light and hope, when things are hard.
    Adult Colouring Material - which is good for stress relief and relaxing.
    Herbal Tea Bag - wee hot cuppa for putting feet up with.
    Chocolate and Sweet Treats - yum!
    Card - "Tops tips for Mental Health" & some encouraging words/quotes
    Booklet - Which has my story of PND & recovery with places (local) to find help for anyone in need.

    You can see a picture of a what I hope they could look like above.

    I'd love your help to do this - each bag costs around £1.20 to make and produce. Every penny will go to them! If you can help, I'd be so grateful.

    If not, no problem - I'd love you to come and join me on www.haveyouseenthatgirl.com

    If you'd like to partner with me, in this project, in anyway please get in touch and I can provide more detailed information and we can chat - haveyouseenthatgirl@outlook.com
