    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.

    Story

    On August 11th 2018, my friends and I will be hosting a 12-hour Gaming Livestream to raise money for Inspiring Life: The Evie Douglas Memorial Fund.

    This is a fund set up by Freda Douglas to honour her daughter Evie who completed suicide weeks after her 21st birthday. The goal of this fund is to support people in our community to improve their mental health and wellbeing.

    The aim is to raise awareness of mental health issues, challenge stigma and to fundraise for local mental health charities, support groups and activity groups. This fund has made donations to SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health,) SOBS (Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide,) and Peebles High School Dance Group. They are often found running Depressed Cake Shops selling grey cakes representing the cloud that can descend when we are struggling with poor mental health to raise money for mental health causes.

    We encourage you to watch this stream and donate generously. This is a very good cause ran by someone who truly cares about mental health and its effect on each and every one of us. It's a cause we admire and wish to support greatly.

    Throughout our livestream we are going to be doing challenges and, at the end, the loser of the most challenges will get dunked with an ice bucket. If we reach this first target, I will personally guarantee that I take a dunking alongside the loser at the end of the stream.

    Also, for every £250 we raise, another person will be added to the dunking list at the end of the event. (Second Last, Third Last, etc.)

    Thank you very much! You will be able to watch the stream at twitch.tv/edoowinnie August 11th from 11am to 11pm.

      Just about to start the stream today. We're starting already so close to our first target, closer than we've ever been at the start of one of these streams. With your continued support, we can reach our target and break our previous record. Please take the time to watch our stream and donate if you're able to. The money raised here will be put towards causes to ease the lives of those dealing with mental health issues and supporting those who wish to inspire others as Evie did during her life. Thank you all so much!

      We are dangerously close to our first goal and we haven't even started the stream yet! Truly incredible! Thank you to everyone who has donated to this cause. It's heartwarming to see so much support! Remember that, in reaching our first goal, you guarantee another unlucky player getting dunked at the end of it. I'll also be taking the plunge whether I win or lose if we reach that traget! We will also extend the goal and add more dunkings for every £250 raised! Once more, my thanks to you all!

      Less than 7 days until the stream and we've reached our halfway mark! Reaching our first fundraising goal is looking more and more likely and I'm almost certain we'll reach even further beyond our target! A massive thank you to all the generous donators so far and here's hoping we can reach our next milestone very soon! Thank you all so much and, if you haven't already, please give generously to this great cause.

    My name is Eoin Downie. As someone who has dealt with depression and mental illness in my past, a cause like this resonates with me. My hope is that the money raised from this endeavour will be used to improve the lives of people who don't have the help available to them.
