    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    In Josh's own words:
    After surviving a suicide attempt in May 2015. I’m now attempting to cycle around the world on a global campaign to raise awareness of mental health and suicide prevention.
    My journey will take me to over 80 countries on 6 different continents. Pedalling over 50,000 miles through Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, South America and finally North America before returning to Scotland.
    After an intense battle with depression in 2015 I lost all hope and felt I couldn’t go on living any longer. I attempted to kill myself by driving my car into a concrete barrier at over 80mph.
    Miraculously, I walked away from this attempt with no physical injuries whatsoever. I knew I’d been kept alive for a reason and that I had to do something big with my 2nd chance at life.
    I believe I was kept alive to tell my story and to provide hope to others who also suffer with mental health issues or feel suicidal.
    By going around the world, I hope to find the meaning of life and achieve happiness within myself.
    This is my personal and spiritual journey to overcoming depression and finding true inner happiness.
    I left Scotland on May 26th 2016. The 1 year anniversary of my failed suicide attempt, as a symbol of hope for all those who feel suicidal or have battled with mental health issues.
    A symbol that any life can be transformed, any life can be brought back from the brink to follow your dreams and find inner happiness.
    I wasn’t a cyclist before this, but it is the scale of my challenge that I hope will inspire others.
    Through openly and honestly sharing my journey, I hope to educate and help others who feel suicidal and provide hope that after darkness comes light.
    Always.
