Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Update on behalf of Jennifer Bell & family. We are overwhelmed by the support we have received over the last week and would like to thank everyone who has donated to the original fund set up by Laura Boland at Bijoux Bridal which has raised just over £100k for Jennifer's daughters. Laura has decided that all funds raised from here on in via her fundraiser will be donated to MND Scotland, a charity close to our hearts whom Jennifer herself has raised thousands of pounds for over the last 24 months. We entirely support this decision. We have been contacted by our wider network of friends and family who have also been fund-raising independently, and who wish for those funds raised to go directly to the girls. For those in this situation, please contact Moyra Reid via Facebook or donate via this fundraiser page. All funds raised here will continue to be directly for Jennifer's children. Thank you again for your thoughts, kind words and messages of encouragement, it's appreciated more than you could ever know.
Ladies, many of you will have heard of or seen one of our own Glasgow Girls, Jennifer Bell’s, journey over the last few years as she has heroically battled MND.
I don’t know Jennifer personally, we’ve spoken a few times on social media, but over the last year or so she’s consistently been a woman I would think of as an inspiration and role model of how to be positive, strong and dignified in extremely challenging circumstances. How she’s managed herself, planned for her family and taken control of a truly tragic situation is nothing short of superwoman style strength.
Today Jennifer posted updating her followers of her final chapter, and I believe it’s a post every woman should read. Jennifer has shown many over the last few years how to live a meaningful life, in a world where many of us can forget what’s truly important. Now, she shows how to leave this world with the same dignity and strength.
Please read, reflect and if you can support her cause...Sending love and strength to Jennifer, her family and friends. This JustGiving has been created to enable the Girls of Glasgow to donate to Jennifer‘s family to support them through this tough time. All funds raised will go directly to them.
After a long 24 months of fighting mnd I have today began my final chapter in Marie curie.
I don’t really have the words apart from I am broken leaving my little girls and family 💔
Thank you to everyone who has been there for me. Thank you to my amazing friends who have consistently been there for me. Thank you to everyone Whoes reached out to me, who raised money for my daughters and thank you to everyone who has helped, donated and raised awareness for motor neurone disease.
I do believe we are closer to a cure.. but not in my time.
I said from the very beginning il decide when I’ve had enough not mnd. I am so tired. Tired of fighting, I’ve done my best and gave it my all. But it’s time to protect my girls and they deserve to remember mum not mnd.
Thank you to everyone I’ve met throughout my journey, to the people who stood by me through everything not just this disease but everything in my personal life and for everyone who never doubted me. The kindness and love my family, me and my girls have been shown, shows that their is still good in this world.
My families and friends hearts are breaking mine is shattered leaving my 2 little girls, but I know what I’ve left behind for them will show them how much I loved them and they’ll carry that in their hearts forever.
Mnd is the cruelest disease and everyone has a different acceptance of what quality of life is for them. Mine has been taken from me. I don’t know where I’m going but I know there will be people waiting for me.
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t at all scared because I am human and at 29 it is scary.
I said from the day I was diagnosed il know when I’m ready and that time has come. Me and my girls have made more memories in a year than some will make in a life time. For that I am blessed.
Motor neurone disease is so underfunded and if I could ask anyone to pick a charity to give people diagnosed a chance, at least a glimmer of hope then please donate to MND SCOTLAND 💙
Say a wee prayer for my girls, my dad, mum, the rest of my family and friends and send them the strength to get through this.
I’m not doing goodbyes. I’ll see you in a while👼
Love Jen xxx
