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 am currently volunteering with the Trinity Youth Association who offer support and guidance to LGBT children and young people across the local area. One of the vital services that they provide is a weekly youth club for 17-24 year olds who are transgender.
I am looking to run some advice sessions for people , assigned male at birth who are transitioning to a female presentation, to help with sourcing and applying effective natural looking make up, particularly foundation and concealer. Many of the group have never used make up before so these sessions are going to be designed to teach application methods and color matching etc. with the aim to ultimately increase self-confidence. The sessions will offer a safe and comfortable environment to ask questions and to try different products and practice! As a parent of a transgender child the Trinity Youth Association have been an amazing support and I want to help give back.
We are looking for any help or support with purchasing some products and tools to use in the workshops if anyone can help us out?
