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.
Helen is just an ordinary woman, living an extraordinary life. You might see her at the checkout of your grocery store. What you won’t see is that she has cerebral palsy, and is wheelchair bound. This confident, whitty, intelligent woman is fighting daily battles of pain and fatigue, doing it all with a smile and the confidence that makes her loved by all her friends and family, and admired by those customers she greets and serves every day.
You can help ease her discomfort. The fatigue from pushing her wheelchair around daily is setting in. She’s a 40 YO soul trapped in an 80 YO body. How do we give her a shot of anti-acing love? by this wheelchair drive program.

The appropriate societies will not pay for this on Helen’s chair as it is not deemed a requirement for her to live. But there is life and there is quality of life. Her physical quality of life deserves to match her mental. Donate to *insert link* now and help us raise £4300 to get her wheels in motion!
Why are you giving?
You are giving to ensure a woman is able to live a life with less pain than she currently does.
What will my gift provide?
A wheelchair drive program, which will make her chair self-propelling.
How will this help Helen?
She will no longer have to exert her shoulder muscles constantly to propel herself through life. Its like a constant gym session except its all pain and very little gain.

Helen, I wish you all the best in getting there - if every one of your twitter followers donated at least £5 each you would get there in no time - an amazing cause, for an amazing woman. Good luck x

About the fundraiser
Beaconsfield, United Kingdom
I need to reach my target of £4,795 so I can then buy the MX2 SmartDrive system. A powerdrive that fits on to my wheelchair. I then wear a bluetooth wristband to control it. The wheelchair then wheels itself. This means I have hands free wheeling and can hold hands with hubby
