Weʼre raising £200 to buy a laptop to further my education and help me connect with other people who have mental health issues.

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.
I have suffered mental health issues for a number of years as well as other health issues, which has left me feeling isolated. I have no support network just a dog and a teenage son. I would love to gain some confidence by doing some online training and also I have been told by my doctor that there are some great ways of connecting with people with mental health issues online and unfortunately I only have a phone to access the Internet with. Which is very hard as I'm blind in one eye and partialy sighted in the other. I have been saving my pennies but it usualy ends up getting spent on more important things for my son etc. If I could afford just a cheap small laptop I feel this will help me feel less alone in my thoughts and not feel so isolated and start getting my life back on track.
