Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
My dear little friend Hugo has been diagnosed with non-verbal autism and struggles to communicate on a daily basis. I have set up this page to help him find his voice!
He uses pictures to tell his family what he wants but having a picture for every need he might have is near on impossible! Hugo needs lots of therapies but the first priority is speech therapy, ideally twice a week (£80 per session). Hugo has an NHS speech therapy who sees him once every six months and gives the family and his nursery targets. This is just not enough to help Hugo. We want to give him the best possible chance to find his voice and we are asking for your help to do so.
Over the next few months I will be organising fund raising events to help us reach as much as we can in order to not only raise enough for Hugo to get speech therapy but additional therapies which will help Hugo on a day to day basis.
We know not everyone can help financially but if you could help in other ways (promoting this page or running yourself to help raise funds, I know myself and all who know and love Hugo would be extremely grateful).
