Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Way back in June 2020, our local advocacy group for young people with disabilities, Inspire Highland , had planned to host a disability awareness event at our local school. Part of this would have involved a coffee morning, raising funds for a charity that is very close to my heart, as they support the neuro ward where I've had multiple surgeries and regular appointments with neurologists and my neurosurgeon.
Obviously, this was cancelled due to the pandemic, but I still really wanted to try and help the charities that were still working so hard through every lockdown. So, along with some friends, I set out to create a charity magazine. Long story short, we're now releasing one 12-page issue each month, and hosting them on our website, alongside a variety of disability-awareness resources, testimonies, interviews and information on the charities we feel are especially wonderful.
Our website and the online magazine are free to access, but we're expanding to print copies soon, so this page exists for people to support our cause. All donations will be automatically split between that month's 'spotlight' charities, unless otherwise specified.
I myself am also a writer, and trying to work my way through university, while also living with numerous disabilities - including being autistic, and having chronic migraine headaches. But this project is so close to my heart, I've devoted almost all of my time to it. Hopefully you'll agree that it's been worth it, by taking a look at our site and donating to let us keep it going as long as possible. Thank you.
