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 can't believe I'm doing this but I literally have no one to turn to.. I'm in a spiral of debt and despite paying 80% of our wage each month on it we just can't keep up.. we are a family of 5 myself my partner and our 3 children our eldest who is 20 doesn't work and is here full time due to having a genetic disorder.. our cicumstances changed heavily last year... financially we had nothing and the debt was building up.. was selling what we could to get by.. cancelled unnessacery bills like the media services and TV licence.. then my partner got lucky and found another job.. and despite working 6 days a week his wage is Barley covering our bills... we had catalogues and credit cards we was paying regularly as with the rent.. but now are all in debt.. we managed to clear enough of our rent and keep the bailiffs from taking what we had and set up repayments... we owe about £17000 in total.. but I've come here today bcos despite making regular payments to may rent last month we barley had enough due to being super taxed to pay the main bills.. so we had nothing left for rent or food.. we are selling what we have left to get by with food again and have received food vouchers from children's school but we got hit with a notice of seeking possession due to owing the amount above.. I'm exhausted and tired i have no family or real friends my partners mum is on a pension and in no position to help despite wanting too.. I can handle the debt I'm not asking for help with that.. just our rent so we can just have a lil hand to get back on track.. and take the worry away of having to save our home..we have 4 days to pay in full or face court charges being added.. just can't cope with anymore debt being added..
