What is crowdfunding?

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.

I'm trying to have justice served for John Laurens who is featured in the hit Broadway musical Hamilton: An American Musical. He is a largely forgotten figure in history but he fought for the rights of people who's voices were silenced. John Laurens was killed in an insignificant skirmish in South Carolina on August 27th 1782 at the age of 27 by the King George III's army. As a British person myself I feel a duty to serve justice to someone who wholly deserves it and resonates with so many people around the world. His values are aligned with many that are upheld today.
