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 am a disabled person and I suffer long term mobility issues, other physical illnesses and mental health issues. Up until March of 2018 I was in receipt of PIP until at a review assessment the assessor lied on the report and said that I did not need PIP for a number of reasons. As a result of this I am now down on my income by £475 a month yet my bills still remain the same. I asked for a mandatory reconsideration from the DWP and that was refused. Im now waiting to go to tribunal which may take months.
Some days I am having to eat barely anything because I have nothing in my cupboards and fridge/freezer. I have gone without gas just so that I can eat many times which means I have had no heating or hot water. I have even been unable to pay council tax which is not good because I come first. Without food I cannot take many of my medications which I rely upon heavily.
I ask if you may be able to donate anything even a small amount to help me hit my goal. Anything I do not need I will pass onto other local charitable places
