Weʼre raising £4,000 to help me gain education through intensive courses and open my business as nobody will help me get on my feet as I don't keep well.
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.
A bit about myself: I am 34 years old and have worked hard since leaving school. Suddenly my life changed when I had an operation that went wrong and started a multitude of chronic health issues. I then went on to be told I had a huge tumor on one of my ovaries and another in the Fallopian tube which resulted in a partial hysterectomy at a young age. My fertility has been compromised as a result of not just the 1 ovary but the chronic conditions I have been left with.
I have went from working 40hours+ to not being able to maintain a job as employers can only have so much understanding of illness.
To combat my employment issues I decided to return to college. I didn't keep well through my course but made sure I had my work completed from home.
I don't want to not work but due to trying many different jobs since getting unwell I have realised my only option is to be self employed.
I have managed to secure a small salon with great potential but I require to decorate and kit it out. I am also qualified in HA dermal fillers and would love to study for my next qualification in advanced fillers so I can offer a great package.
I never seem to have good luck and wasn't sure wether to put this plea on here but thought it would be worth trying.
Anything would help me and would be sincerely appreciated and put to productive use.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this.
