    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.


    After 6 years of marriage, 5 different houses (forces family), 3 jobs and 2 chidren, the man I vowed to stick with through thick and thin, chose his job over his family and has walked out on us. It's the month before Christmas and the idea of us being on our own petrifies me! What if Christmas is ruined for my boys forever?! My family have already booked to go to Australia to spend Christmas with my brother that lives over there. I didn't book a flight because I THOUGHT we'd be having a family Christmas at home, and now the prices are getting higher and higher, I don't have a chance to go.

        Lara - sad to hear your news such a bum deal to have to go through. You do a sterling job with your young family and I am sure it will continue. Take great care and hope you fulfil your dream. xxx
