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.
Several months ago in November I was taking the train up to my Nans house to attend my Grandads funeral. My plan was to take some nice photographs of the flowers and service itself etc with my Canon 700D I had got for christmas that prior year. However this was made impossible, as when I stepped out the train I realised that I'd left my bag containing £700 worth of lenses, microphones and the camera itself where I was sitting. Luckily, the train had terminated at the next stop so I was able to get driven to the next station and get on the same train to look for my camera where I was sitting. I searched the area I was sat and the camera was nowhere to be found, I shortly after filed a lost property claim and here we are in June 2018 yet to receive a response. The only explanation is that somebody had seen my bag and noticed the expensive equipment inside and stolen it.
I am an aspiring Youtube Content Creator who is now currently filming on my sisters old, beaten up iPod Touch and as I'm only 16 and yet to get a job(trust me, ive been applying for months now)my financial state is not the best.
I ask you please, even if is just £1, to help fund a new camera for me so I can produce better looking videos more efficiently and get closer to my goal of becoming a full time Video Creator. Even if you cannot donate, sharing this page with people who might be able to goes a long way. Thank you for reading x
*All excess funds will be donated to Cancer Research UK*
