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.
So here's my story.
At the age of 17, the night before my birthday I was kicked out of my parents home and left all alone with no one to turn to. My friends were never there and I had no family that I could talk to. I spent nights begging to stay at peoples houses, in their cars and even had to do things to find a place to sleep for the nights, I never thought I would have to do. I spent my 18th birthday depressed, hungry and alone. I never though my life would come to this, you see things like this on TV, in newspapers but never did I think that it would ever happen to me and thats when it hit me. I suffered from anxiety and depression which got increasingly difficult to cope with over time. i just wished that I d somewhere there for me to hold my hand and tell me everything will be alright. It was months and months before anything was done about the situation and had to instantly drop out of college which resulted in me missing out on my education which I will never be able to get back. After fighting for so long I have finally received accommodation by the local council but cannot afford any furniture and would appreciate any donations anhome could offer me, thank you.
