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.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Until his sudden death early last year, I was in a long-term relationship with the jazz musician Mirza Krupalija.
Mirza had a personal Facebook account and his band Kaiten a Facebook page.
To my great distress, and to the distress of his family and close friends, 6 months after Mirza’s death both these pages were removed by Facebook, “at the request of a family member”.
No member of Mirza’s family either made or supported such a request.

Facebook’s complaints process informed me that accounts, once deleted, cannot be restored. I followed this up with emails, letters and formal written requests for further investigation and information as well as a petition to save my partner's profile which was signed by almost 700 family and friends.
Facebook was not willing to investigate or reverse their decision.

Following legal discussions with a barrister we consider that the act of requesting the deletion of these Facebook pages was malicious, and actionable according to the laws of England & Wales. The retention and withholding by Facebook of the private information of my deceased partner constitutes an interference in my rights under the European Convention on Human Rights.

The requestor remains unidentified. I am now having to use a legal process known as Norwich Pharmacal Application to demand that the details of the person who made this request be disclosed.

How Much Will It Cost...I have spent £4,000 on legal advice and I will also pay Facebook's legal costs, and the “reasonable cost” of providing the disclosure itself. Costs are likely to reach £10,000 or more.
Facebook policy makers should seriously and swiftly reconsider their procedures and identity checks for such drastic requests as to delete someone's profile.
Please help me and support my legal battle by donating or sharing my appeal. I am seeking justice so that what has happened to me will be less likely to happen to you in the future.

    I gave the statement. Barristers are now preparing the application which will be ready probably at the end of September. The application cost is £3,600 plus VAT and court administrative cost will be £500. Fingers crossed. I hope that by obtaining a name of the person who requested my partner's profile removal I will be able to show flaws in Facebook procedures where total strangers are allowed to exercise power over another human being's personal details. With huge thanks to those of you who have already showed your support.
